My Little Artist…

This stamp set has been on my desk far too long without seeing ink.  Today it was christened with a certain little girl in mind who will tell you “I am an artist you know.”…


A few months ago I watched a video by Lydia Fiedler where she used this stamp set.  I couldn’t find that video now if I wanted, but remembered enough to put this together.  I may draw with pencil some glasses and go over it with my journal pen…Lyla wears glasses.  The bling is totally her!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black and Thick Whisper White Chardstock
  • Ink:  Island Indigo, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette (cheeks), Going Gray and Watermelon Wonder
