Sending Out Smiles Today

Hi everyone!  I'm Peg and I am so happy to be a part of the Deep Red Stamps design team.  I have to admit I am a stamp-o-holic and I absolutely love the stamps from Deep Red Stamps.  Today I'd like to share my first project as a team member. 

This adorable little bear stamp (Bear and Flower) was stamped using my favorite black ink.  I love the crisp images you get from the stamps.  The small details, such as the stitching on this little guy, stand out perfectly once the image is colored because it is such a clear image.  The next thing I did was to color everything with markers from several different companies.  I, then, went back over several areas such as the flower pot to add some shading on the pot and on the bear's arms and body.  It, also, helped to add a look of texture to make the bear look fuzzy. Who wouldn't want to cuddle with this cute little bear?  The flower makes me want spring to come even more quickly now. When you look at it, you can almost see a little happy dance starting to share the joy.  The smiles of these two will guarantee to bring a smile to anyone's face.  

This stamp is the perfect thing to use to send a smile to someone who has been on your mind.  Be sure to head on over to the Deep Red Stamps site and drop one in your shopping cart and send your friends a smile today, but don't stop there check out all of the fabulous stamps they carry. I know you will be as excited as I am to have some of your own to use for your next stamping projects!
