How could I RESIST a stamp with 5 dogs in a boat?! With encouraging sentiments!?!? I just had to have it! And color it up. There might be a few more colorings coming in the future, this is a fun little stamp from Penny Black!

I tried something the other day, I posted a link to this stamp set on social media while there was a flash sale on at Ellen Hutson. I didn’t expect it to sell out completely in just hours!? It’s also out of stock elsewhere – only 3 were left at Amazon when I checked. I guess it’s popular! You can click the “notify me” button in Ellen’s shop and once it’s restocked you’ll get an email.

Since stamps often fly off the shelf within just hours of my videos going live, I’ll occasionally start posting secret peeks like that on Instagram and Facebook, just to give social media followers a chance at first “dibs,” not just the early YouTube watchers who always get there first. I hope this makes things a little more fair for everyone to have access to the stuff I’m using.

And on that note – I have a bloghop video coming tomorrow, and then on Monday – I’ll be using THIS set. Just to give blog-only-readers first dibs on something too!

Okay enough of all that mumbo jumbo. Let’s get to the coloring! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I used Polychromos pencils – but you can of course use any brand you’ve got at hand. Here are the colors:

As always I love coloring dogs to look like mine…so V and G are of course going for a boat ride!

The reflection in the water can be SUPER simple…I see lots of folks figuring out mirror stamping, but it’s a heck of a lot easier to have just a little color reflect below the boat and call it done, isn’t it? LOL!
