New Stamp Image Blog Hop

This month's Angel Blog Hop is for NEW STAMPS from the Inspiration Book that went live in June. The Angel Company Catalogue isn't just a regular catalog, it's truly a great source of INSPIRATION.

Both of these cards use images from Summer Boys. I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and oderless mineral spirits, using a blending stump. I used Hip Hop paper on the top card because I wanted to use that frog!

The bottom card has two other stamps added--the sentiment is from Ordinary Greetings and the baseball stitching is from Running Stitches. The joy of unmounted stamps is that I could curve the stitch stamp to get the look I wanted! I used a Sanding Block on the DCWV paper to give it that worn look--wanted to help you feel a nice, worn-out baseball glove in your hand. A little Cognac Palette ink helps the baseball look dirty. ;-)




Be sure to check out all the other inspiration from my Angel buddies!
