Today I'm coming at you with a fresh take on a set released this month from The Rabbit Hole Designs. I've used this set before, but I love figuring out new ways to use my stamps. I used the "Love You More" set, but I left off some of the image..... here, take a look:
So I used the image where the little people are decorating the tree.... but I didn't ink up the tree when I stamped the image...
I then built a little scene around them. I imagined them on their front stoop, in need of a ladder, but trying to make things work anyways. I can totally identify with this girl though, I always want to decorate all the things!
I started by stamping the image on Sweet Sentiment Coloring Paper using Momento Desert Sand ink. I then colored it up using my Copic markers. I placed it on top of DSP from Graphic 45 (A Christmas Carol). I added some "ribbon" from Tim Holtz and a button from Dress it Up Buttons. I also added a few flowers from my stash, I believe all of these are from Wild Orchid Crafts, but don't quote me on that. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of paper with Versamark ink and embossed it with Wow Embossing powder in Super Fine Black.
Here are the Copic colors I used:
