New Stamps in the house!

Hello! Isn't this one of the most gorgeous stamps you have seen? I just love it and all the other by this artist. I have to blame my friend Angela for finding these, I tease her all the time about being a bad influence on me!  Anyway, Angela found these stamps and has purchased all of them now I think. She was kind enough to share one with me until my order of stamps arrived, since I had to order some too! This stamp is called Faraway Moon and is part of the Ching-Chou Kuik's Fantasy Art Collection by Sweet Pea Stamps. I am happy to report that my stamps have arrived and you will be seeing more of these images. Talk about fun images to color! I colored this with Copic markers and added a few details with a white gel pen. The DP is from Making Memories, the flowers are Prima, brads are from JoAnn's, and the ribbon is from my stash. Have a great night, I have a few things to get done before Lost comes on, and I can't miss a minute of that show!

Oh yeah, I wanted to mention about the skin color on this image. I saw a post from Tammy and she mentioned using E33 with her skin color. I have never used that with lighter skin colors before and thought I would give it a try. I did use it on this image and am very happy with the results.

The grouping of primas on the corner make a nice accent to your image.

Did you use E33 alone for the skin? I use E00 and it's looking weird lately--maybe my marker needs a refill already.

This is a beautiful image, Gina. Excellent coloring and layout too!
