So Berry Sweet

These stamps are some recent additions to the justjohanna line. I love strawberries and I love these stamps. I think the strawberry topiary is just the cutest! Well, not the cutest of all justjohanna stamps, but it rates right up there! I colored this stamp with Prismacolor pencils. Some day I will write down all the colors I use. Actually, the list would probably be shorter if I wrote down the colors I did NOT use. I just love using lots of colors and blending, blending, blending. I hand drew the scallopy edge on the topiary section. This card is A2 size. This next card was done using a 2x2 piece of Stampbord. First, I stamped the images on the blank Stampbord and then I inked up the Stampbord with various Versamark Chalk inks in the colors I wanted in the particular areas: red & green. Then I used a stamp positioner to stamp the images again over the top of the previous image. I used a fine point black pen to draw the lines around the images. After it dried, I used the scratch knife to scratch out the white areas on the Stampbord. I drew the scallopy edge. This card is 4x4.

Yummy! I'm always amazed at your coloring, but now you are free hand drawing designs. Really wonderful.

Guess what I saw at Rite-Aid today? Marshmallow Star Peeps with pieces of candy cane in them. You gotta get some.

The second one is really fun. I need a major tutorial from you on how to create the topiary. The coloring is beautiful.

I always love to see how you think outside the box with your stamps and colors. As always, these are no exception and they ARE exceptional!

I really would love to see the Stampbord one in person. It's awesome.

Your coloring is great. You really are a wiz with the Prismacolors.
