Northwoods Stamp

Happy Memorial Day. Thank you to all the service men and women. I have been busy the last couple of months and done some stamping now and then, but not much. Relatives been visiting for the last couple of months (a week here and there). Jim has been busy with continuing educational courses and had been travelling for the last two weekends in a row. He is home this weekend, but has couple of more course to take, but likely it is in town.

I made some thank you cards for some friends for helping to take care of our cats when we were out of town couple of weeks ago. I forgot to photograph them as I was in a hurry to finish up the cards, so I can give it to them. I did take a picture of this card. The stamp is Northwoods. There samples are just georgeous. I got this and other Northwoods stamps for my LSS because I saw their samples. I tried to case theirs, but I think I am still missing some of the glitter. I used Martha Stewart crystal fine glitter, but it is not that glittery. Northwoods have lots of beautiful floral, nature, animal stamps. I just love their stamps, but its seems like it is hard to color because of all the details. I used prisma color pencil on this card. Their samples are usually watercolored with Tombow markers. This card can be anything from sympathy to birthday to anything you want. I stamped a generic sentiment (stamp: Hero Arts) on there as I don't know who I want to give this to yet. The inside is blank for now until I know who I am giving this too.
