My First InStyle Stamps!

I got my first order of InStyle Stamps yesterday and made these cute cards.
All of the images are colored with copic markers, my usual medium of choice.

InStyle Stamps is a new stamp company that just opened an internet store a couple of weeks ago. The images are sold as single stamps. Check out the store and Virginia's, (InStyle Stamps owner), blog. The stamp above is a modified version of the Roxy Stamp. I changed the hair size from the huge afro to this modified afro just for fun and because I can :)

Here is a stamp called Pam:

The stamp only has one dog on a leash but I added two additional friends for a more fun walk. I like the saying "It's all Good" because it works for so many things. I made the bottom dog walking outside the frame. This technique is called outside the box and I think it adds a little interest to an otherwise pretty plain card.

My final stamped image is the Roxy without any hair adjustments:

This depicts my high school era. Yes, I am that old! I have always liked the colors blue and green together, maybe for that very reason. I colored the image with copic markers and then used my copic blender pen to make the blue jeans appear bleached out or very worn.

I airbrushed the prima flowers with my copic airbrush the largest on the bottom in green and the middle in blue. I added a blue and green large brad to compliment the color scheme.

I hope that you enjoyed learning about this new company and seeing a few of the stamps they are offering currently. Virginia is adding more stamps all the time and has some great challenges, contests and the cutest animated images that she will make from your photos. Check it out.

I hope everyone has a safe and Merry Christmas.

These stamps are adorable! (I don't know whether my budget can handle more adorable stamps.)
