"How Do I Love Thee?"

The first stamp I ever bought was "How Do I Love Thee?" by Penny Black from Blossies Scrapbooking in Morayfield almost 10 years ago. 

I remember coming home with my new stamp, watercolour pencils and  spending hours perfecting my colouring with my water colour brush. Now days I use Copics but I still love this stamp. This one stamp lead to a rather large collection of Penny Blacks and a new shelf in the craft room to house them all!

The new challenge over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog is Crafty Bargains.... Just perfect for my cute little stamp and my bargain of the summer - a pack of 100 paper doilies for $1.50

I haven't used this stamp in ages and loved colouring him in again. 

I used Copic's E51, E11, E13, E15, R20, RV32, RV35 C1, C3, BV23, R24, R24 and R29 on the Penny Black stamp.
Even Jasmine approves of this creation, either that or she wants me to stop creating and feed her!
