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 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!
