You Brighten My Day

I got a couple new stamps yesterday and couldn't resist doing some coloring.  This one took quite a while and I think I used more colors than I have ever used on one image.  The stamp is Back Porch by Whimsy Stamps.  This is an actual rubber stamp.  I have always stayed away from them like the plague.  I could never get the images stamped fully and I would get ink all over the place.  Stamparatus from Stampin' Up fixed those problems.  It is the ultimate stamping tool!  

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.  The paper is Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket.  I am discovering so many goodies that I had forgotten about!

Copics:  C1, 2, E31, 33, 34, 35, G 20, 21, 24, 94, R24, 35, 37, 39, 43, 46
V06, 12, 15, 17, Y11, 21, 23, 26, 35, 38, 
YG01, 03, 05, 06, 09, 61, 63, 91, 93, 95, YR14, 18
