Sometimes it is great to go back revisit the past and things that you have collected over time. This stamp image is an example of that, it's a classic!
The card though is new, I made it this week while I was "offline" and being productive. It's Father Christmas, an old stamp by PSX. It came in a set with other images and I have had it for a long time. The gold paper is another of things that I have held kept stashed away, I forgot how much I liked it!
Copic markers seem to be encouraging me to use stamps that I had shied away from in the past. I guess the ability to color stuff the way I see it in my mind is a lot easier with these markers then it has been in the past with pencils, chalks, paints or regular water based markers. I am actually having fun coloring again, really coloring. I could flood my blog with all the cards I have made recently, but I am trying to space them out!
One thing is for sure I am so incredibly glad that I didn't get rid of the stamps that I wasn't using! It is so nice to be able to go back and use those images that I thought were wonderful when I bought them, but then didn't know how to make them pop the way I wanted to!
