one more Valentine? wanna win some stamps?

You already know about my little Valentine problem,
ahem, need to get those in the mail, yes . . . but
made one more today!!!




Is it wrong for me to think she's just so pretty?



She's the Cosmos Collage stamp from
Lost Coast designs, available at Blockheads.


Made her using a super simple chalk technique, but I'm
so pleased with how she turned out--it was a good effect
for this image, a nice soft touch. If you have a chalk
technique you like to use, consider this--if you enter your
chalky stamped creation at the Blockheads Blog site, you
have a chance at a $25 gift certificate.

Happy Valentine's Day, right? Actually, you have until
the 21st, but that's beside the point . . . and look at
that, I entered the code just like they said, and it
magically posted everything you need to know, right down
there! I'll never understand the intraweb . . .

:)

I never would have thought to use chalk, but it DOES make her look so pretty!!!

Makes me want to dig through my stamps and see who else needs a chalking . . .

I'm mighty impressed with your chalk technique creation! Mine looked just awful, so I did not play. :( You used such subtle coloring, it's really nice.

Thanks so much for playing with the Blockheads. :)
