Uplifting Occasion!


No matter how often I use this stamp it always makes me smile!

I have given the Copics a well deserved rest and used my water colour pencils to colour this Penny Black stamp ' Uplifting Occasion'. The papers are from the Cosmopolitan Collection by MakingMemories.

It fits two challenges.....

Penny Black Saturday - Lace and Pearls.

Friday Sketchers - well, it seems these days I always need a sketch to follow and this one was just the job. I turned the sketch on its side to fit the shape of the image.


What did the bra say to the hat?
You go on ahead!

I love the image too. Cannot say what it makes me do.
On a serious note, do you use water with your watercolour pencils or are they just the colour of water?
