This is one of the stamps I bought this week and I fell in love with it. It's by House-Mouse Designs, I stamped it with versafine black and coloured in the image with derwent coloursoft pencils.

I distressed with vintage photo, and mounted it on bazzill and my favorite papers at the moment My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from Aud Designs I stamped this with Adirondack Pesto. I added a touch of Star Dust stickles on the wings.

Thanks for looking and all you kind comments.

This is my second Kadoodle stamp. Designed by Sandra Dry go look at her cool blog for more inspiration.

I painted Dan with silver paint dabber and added dots of stickles, and added gold dabber to his hat. The beard I used Liquid Applique and before I heated it I sprinkled with Angel Dust art glitter. I glossed his wand, and used Quickutz for the exploding cracker and corners. I layer all on Bazzill and ric-rac at the bottom.

Thank's for looking.
