Hello and welcome to the Your Next Stamp January New Release Blog Hop!  Love is in the air this month with some fabulous new Valentine stamps and dies!  The hop begins on Kerri's Blog, and if you've been hopping along you should have arrived from Thanh's blog.

For my project today I have another layout from my Fun Journal:

I used the new image from Omnia Designs called Jessica.  She has a couple of matching sentiments, but I decided to hand write my own words for this spread.  I gessoed the pages, then colored them with Distress reinkers.  I stamped Jessica right over the pink ink and colored her with InkTense pencils.  I drew the sentiment with pencil, then traced over it with a black pen and colored with InkTense pencils.   Here’s a closer look at that adorable image:

I love that you can’t even tell she was entirely pink before I colored her!

As always, Karen is offering an amazing hop special!  You will receive 15% off your entire order including sale items through January 10th!
