After several months of little or no crafty shopping I suddenly have quite a few new things. How did that happen? Well, it started when I won a gift voucher to The Cat's Pajamas during their latest release and off I went to shop. Gosh, it was hard to narrow it down, but I ended up with two things: For Fox Sake stamp set and Mailbox die. The combination is so cute, I think!
I went all US Postal with the look of the card. Colored with Copics, added a few extra dots and lines to the scene for grounding, and sponged some sky with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I also spritzed some water on the sky and blotted immediately with a tissue.
That mailbox! I adore it. It comes with the little heart and envelope dies, too. Little mouse is asking for help getting his happy mail into the post box. See, he left a couple of envelopes laying over there by it, too. They're probably hand stamped cards featuring people characters. Do you notice how the little bird is sitting with his feet out in front of him? These details are just so sweet.
I'll be back in my stamp room each morning before the busyness of the day begins. I've got lots of inking and cutting and coloring to do! See you again shortly. Enjoy your day!
