Little Balls All in a Row
The ornaments was a challenge. I started out with markers to color directly on the stamp. But that didn't work. So I stamped the image in a light brown distress ink, and used the markers to color over. Didn't like the way it looked so I tried to color over to do some shading. Worked on some of the colors but not so much on others. Then I took a contrast color and working each individual ornament at a time, reinked the stamp and stamped over the ornament. I was finally happy.
I must get on making my gift tags. I've started rapping presents because I have nowhere to hide them. But I have to remember what each one is because I have no tags to put on them.
