Stamp Fever just got a new order of Penny Black stamps and this sweet Mimi stamp called Bonjour is the first one I inked up today.
I used Paisley Outline to stamp the card base and added some Dusty Concord ink for a shot of color. I trimmed a piece of white cs to 3 x 4.25 and masked an oval in the center. I stamped Paisley Outline on this panel with a Jenny Bowlin inkpad in Cough Syrup and used Worn Lipstick to distress the panel. Then I stamped the cute image of Mimi in the masked oval and colored it with Copics. White gel pen highlighted the eyes and the pearl necklace.
The panel was matted with some patterned paper and then layered onto the prepared card base. The cute little sentiment is a freebie Lawn Fawn stamp. The rose is an embellie I made using some Premo polymer clay and a mold by Mold Muse (thanks Kelly Marie for the link).
I'm finally taking a Copic class at Stamp Fever taught by Jennie Black, a Copic Certification specialist, so hopefully my coloring will improve. Let me know if you would like information about the class on Wednesday June 22, 2011.
Now I'm off to play with two more Penny Black stamps: la soiree and two's company, after a walk with the hubs and furry kids.

You were bought at a price;
therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit,
which are God's.
