Everything Old is New Again

I have been intrigued by my stamp room again!  Which is a good thing because I have so very many stamps and mountains of supplies!  I signed up to take a class using Copic Markers.  So I got out some images to practice with.  The above stamp was lots of fun to color and I think the image is adorable.
 I added some vintage wallpaper as a background to make this into a card.
 Above and below are my first two practice runs.  The class starts tomorrow.  I think I will be learning a lot and I love to watch other people's art process.  

Here is a link to the class in case you want to check it out:  Online Card Classes.  I have taken the classes before and they are Top Notch!!!!  and Fun!

 After some coloring and stamping I went back to one of my favorite styles....combing great patterned paper with vintage images.  I have two tons of vintage ephemera and have been hoarding it for years.  I finally decided just to use it!!!!!  It felt great.  I need to reduce my hoard!!!
Looking forward to trying to balance stamping and stitching.....and reading and napping!!!

Hi Laura! Love, LOVE your first little print - it reminds me of the Madeline books! Doesn't feel good to be putting all those lovely bits you've saved for years to a good purpose? I'm in the same placie right now and I love it.
