Stamping with a Cold

Thanks to my lovely little McKinley, I have a cold. After a few sleepless nights and her sneezing on me, I got it. So today I have no energy to house work, so I thought I would stamp. Makes sense right. Well, this is what happens when you try to stamp with a cold. You MASK things backwards! UGH. So right away I knew I did it wrong, {don't laugh} and I tried it again. This time getting the heart in the boat.
I love this Boatloads of Love set. And I have been wanting to try stamping it like this for some time. And yesterday, Allison enabled me to the a Sketch Challenge. Alisa Tilsner posted the sketch and I immediately thought of this. I stamped my *trailer* and then masked the heart inside on some Very Vanilla. I tried to use my blender pen, but it's whacking out, so I used some Shimmerz on the inside. Colored with my Sugarloaf markers, matted and threw it all together. If you think it looks familiar, it's because I am using up my Just Delightful Simply Scrapping kit I got for Christmas. You can also barely see that I used my Crop a Dile for some dry embossing, just under the strip of DP.

Stamps: Boatloads of Love, SU!
Ink: Noir Palette Black
Paper: Just Delightful Simply Scrapping Kit, SU!
