Made this for the 113th Ways to Use it Challenge, which was to make a card using small stamps. One of my favorite ways to use small stamps is to do a Faux Postage panel. And some of my favorite things in the whole wide world are little white walkers -- I just think they are so sweet and they instantly remind of that magical time in my own boys' lives when they left infancy and became little persons in their own right. Both of my boys wore them forever, and their outgrown walkers are among my most prized possessions. I think this is such a precious image, and I've had it forever. I'm amazed I've never inked it up before now!
If you've never done Faux Postage before, check out the fabulous Beate's tutorial in the resources section. I had to make a new postage template in Word to fit the image and to reflect the increased postage rate (so if anyone wants it, I'll be happy to email it to you). That also meant that I had to make a new plastic template. Then I stamped the image in each spot, masked it and inked the background. I also made six additional images to cut out, highlight with marker, and Dazzling Diamond-ed (new word!), which were then mounted on 3-D Dots on top of the original images.
Thanks for looking!
