Eskimo Smiles...



It's not often that I come across an Eskimo stamp that I actually really like. This little one is absolutely adorable and coloring them both was even more rewarding. Despite all the fine design details, I found it rather easy to choose my colors. Tombow marker watercoloring was perfect for these little gals. To top them off I chose to add some Stickles to the blue card and Pearl-Ex Metallic watercolors to the purple one. I purposely choose the random colors of the blue card because in Alaska I've learned that you make due with what you have and I didn't want my patterns and colors to be right on so it would reflect the Alaskan spirit. Now I am probably not explaining what I mean quite right but I hope you understand what I'm getting at. I showed my husband both the cards and he actually preferred the blue one over the purple card and the purple one is the one that is coordinates best. Any how, I hope the two lovely ladies that will be receiving one these cards will enjoy them whether they match or not.



Have a blessed weekend and thank you so much for stopping by. It makes it all worth while to be able to share with you all.
Big smiles,
