Astro Boy

I have been a very lucky girl!  For Christmas, Jack ordered me two new BIG sets of Spectrum Noir Pens...  Lights and Brights and they finally arrived last week!!  Then Lili Of the Valley had a huge sale on 140 of their stamps and I got 6 new ones which arrived at the beginning of this week.  So I am feeling rather spoiled at the moment!  I am afraid to say that my current addiction (which changes from week to week!) is colouring stamped images to use for my card toppers.  I really love that I can personalise cards even further making sure that the recipient gets something that they love!

We have a 7 year old boys party to go to on the 02/02/14, and I originally was going to use a stamp of a surfing cat by Penny Black to make him a birthday card, but his pet Kat passed away yesterday - so a change of tactics is required!  I have coloured in one of my new LOTV stamps "Astronaut" and made a space card for him. He is really into Star Wars, so it's not quite right, but I just loved the stamp and had to use it!

I have stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens.  The background papers are from an old Rosies Studio A5 pad.  The Birthday Wishes stamp is Wild Rose, the ribbon is American Crafts and the star sequins are from Spotlight.
