Let me just start by saying that I think Mimi Jourdain (Penny Black Designer) does amazing things with their stamps.

I saw a card she had painted on Pinterest (that beautiful card below) and I just had to have that Milk Can stamp.....'s not a stamp, she painted that freehand.

So, what's a person to do?

I am hoping she thinks imitation is a form of flattery, because I needed to make a similar card.

I stamped the poinsettia in Fall colors using Imagine Crafts inks.
The Milk Can is in colored pencils.

By no means can I draw (well, maybe stick people), but that didn't turn out too terrible.
Next time...watercolors!

Penny Black:  Scarlet Majesty, Believe stamps
Imagine Crafts:  Memento Luxe inks, VersaFine Spanish Moss ink
Faber-Castell:  Polychromo pencils
Pretty Pink Posh:  Sequins

Thanks so much for stamping by...

Who said you couldn't draw? I think you did a beautiful job with your milk can. Wish I could do something like that. I can only color stamps. Great card. Edna Burgess
