Happy Little Stampers July 2023

Happy July friends! Time for a new Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge. This one came together so quickly!
I started by creating the stencilled background - Picnic Checkerboard by Spellbinders. I love this stencil and used my brand new Atomic Fresh Dye Ink Mini Cubes from Altenew - Crimson and Blush. I like these new inks - very juicy and saturated.
I just ink blended the stencil around the outside area and left the center alone, so I would have a landing zone for my image. This cutie is from the Colorado Craft Company - Anita Jeram Tea Time Fun Stamps and coordinating dies. Who doesn't love a mouse dunking her cookie into hot tea?
She was created by stamping onto Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper with my absolute favorite, deep dark black ink, Altenew's Obsidian Black Pigment Ink. While it is still wet, I just sprinkle with Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I actually stamped all the images in this set and watercolored all of them. If you follow me, you know I watercolor at lunchtime at work, and really get a lot done!
The sentiment is from another Anita Jeram set called Wishing You Happiness again stamped with the Obsidian Black Ink - I use it for everything! And today is a lovely day for happiness...thanks for stopping by and come play along with us this month...we'd love to see you.
