Hello Friends, How are you on this third day of the challenge. If you are new to my blog you can read about the coloring challenge here.
Today I am absolutely thrilled to be the guest designer for this month’s Virginia’s View Challenge Blog.
Virginia & I go way back to our early stamping days. It was the love for Hero Arts stamps that brought us together and we met in the Hero Arts Flickr group . I always admired Virginia’s creative and whimsical style and her big heart. All of these characteristics are reflected on her blog.
Hero Arts was my first stamp crush so there was no question what the perfect stamps were for me to use today for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge & Virginia’s View Challenge.

The great thing about Hero Arts layering bird is you don’t need to color if that’s not your thing. Naturally I opted for the open line part of the stamps so I could color! In the video I touch on stamping another beak to form a mouth on the bird so he can hold one of the holly berries. The Holly is seriously my all time favorite holly in the stamping world. The background is called “Waves” but, in my opinion great for any season.
The “Thanks” die cut was laying on my desk top so it became the perfect backdrop for the holly.
Stamping in a “Smoke” ink and coloring the background is a quick way to create a unique background …..
…. after you add texture with a damp rag and “Various Ink“. In the video I did the same thing on parts of the bird.
Thank you so much , my dear friend Virginia, for inviting me to take part in your challenge.
