No Ink Line Stamping - For Annette!!

I was having an email chat with Annette at Netty's Cards
about water colour pens and using them direct onto 
rubber stamps.
I said that when I started stamping many years ago,  I didn't have
any inks, just my pens. 
So I had to use the pen direct method.

She then told me to 'Do It'!!
So I have Annette!!

I have used stamps that were free with the Creative Stamping
magazine, latest one.

The first image was a bird on a garden tool handle.
I just altered the shape a bit, to make a larger
garden ornament.
The Crocus as also one of the stamps.
The plant between the Crocus an the wood I just 
drew with one of my pens.
The purple flowers to the right are a very old stamp.


This stamp was from the same set of stamps.
Very simple but really liked the end result.
More importantly, I really enjoyed going back to 
how I started stamping. 

I used my Marvy Le Plumme and Tom Bow Water Colour Pens.
They are so old that it was a bit of a struggle 
to get many of them to work!!

So THANK YOU Annette for getting me to do it!!!!

Thanks for popping in and leaving your lovely messages.
You know I will always return the compliment. 
That's what blogging is all about!!

Big hugs,
Carol

OMG Carol these are STUNNING! I love the bird, it's amazing but I am SOOO in love with the snowdrops image. It's beautiful, so elegant and your colouring on both is stunning. I'm glad I twisted your arm hun, well worth the effort of the 'no lines' and resurrecting your pens to life. They're both stunning. (I'm so excited I'm actually having trouble typing and have to keep correcting my spelling on practically every other word! LOL)
GORGEOUS.
