Playing with Pencils

Playing with Pencils

While digging through my stamp stash, I came upon this cute little stamp from The Angel Company. They had some lovely stamps. I wish they were still around.

Since I had just been playing with my colored pencils, this design seemed like a given.

Who doesn’t love a brand new box of colored pencils? It’s inspiration just waiting to escape, isn’t it?

A side note– the birthday banner was a chipboard piece (from Studio Calico maybe?) colored with distress ink. The white sentiment is a Making Memories rub-on. When using rub ons, make sure you are applying them on a clean, dry surface. They will not adhere to inked surfaces. Luckily, they resist ink well, so you can apply your color after you’ve added your sentiment.

  1. I have given up on rubons. There is obviously a trick I am missing, since I usually just spoil what I am adding them to. Did not know they would resist the color. Interesting…

    • You have to have a clean, dry surface for them to work. And some brands are better than others. I have rubons from 1988 that still work great.

What do you think?
