Blog Hop Week 2-Thomas Kinkade

Happy Monday! Welcome to the 2nd blog hop in the Cornish Heritage Farm's Summer Fling!
This week we are featuring the Thomas Kinkade line. There are so many beautiful scenes to chose from. If you have never ordered one before then you should know they come beautifully etched in red rubber, mounted on a wood block and have a color image on the block for reference. These stamps are amazing to stamp with! I decided to work with the The Old Fishin' Hole image. I colored with Prismacolor pencils this time, using Gamsol for the blending. The Fishnet backgrounder matched up well for the theme of the card. The sentiment is from the Kim Hughes Pet-Tootie set.
