Happy Nobu

Whew, I finally got my hands on one of my new Sister Stamps which I picked up this past weekend at Island Scrapbooking. Thought I'd start with Nobu because I envisioned him playing outdoors, next to a big tree, and some rocks which are stamps I recently bought at the Island Scrapbooking garage sale. Again, whoever sold them, THANK YOU!!! I love 'em LOTS. I'm actually having fun creating "scenes." Adding patches of grass seems to give it a 3D look. Gotta admit, coloring black hair is a challenge but I was quite happy with how this one turned out. Not quite there yet, but getting the hang of it.

"Nobu" - Sister Stamps
Tree and tall patch of grass - Patchwork Pals
Rocks - Hero Arts
Short blade grass - Viva Las Vegasstamps
Bird - Stampin' Up (I think)

Sun - Hero Arts
Cloud stickers

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!
