Abigail is Painting.....

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone: It's time for another challenge over at RETRO RUBBER and I know this theme is a favorite of you guys. I haven't used my Stamping Bella stamps in a while so here is this one, which is one of my favorites because I always picture my granddaughter Vanessa hard at work.

The name of this image is "Abigail Painting", stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored with some of my SU markers and Prismacolor pencils. The DSP is from Lili of the Valley,(discontinued), the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Sassy Succulents.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I combined 3 different sets here.  The sentiment is from a brand, spanking new SU set called All The Good Things, the border on the top is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Borders" and the little image on the corner is from a Mo Manning stamp called "The Artist", I have it in rubber but it can also be bought in digital format.

I hope you come along and play with us over at RETRO RUBBER, for more inspiration, please stop by the blog to see my teammates amazing cards and leave them some comment love.

Please don't forget to use at least one stamp that is OLDER THAN ONE YEAR.
Please let us know how long you had this stamps or the year when they were released.
You can enter 13 challenges including ours.

I hope you go dig out your beloved older stamps and join my teammates and me in the RETRO RUBBER gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express,
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

I have a new love of Bellas since my friend shared with me. Mine are mostly critters 'cause she knows they're my thing, but I've always adored these skinny girls, too. How perfect this would be for Vanessa! You're very good at coloring with all mediums, Maria. Love how you mix and match your stamps. Meant to say I love those birds on the inside of your last card, too.

Oh so much fun! Love this lass and her stripy tights and paintbrush. I've never seen her before, so I'm enchanted by her.
