Merry Monday 273

Hi There!

I recently reorg  organized my stamps in their bins.  I am still very happy with the bins, and zip bags I have used for the last 3 years.  Last spring I purchased plastic dividers meant for comic book storage.  My zip bags are about 9 inches long, and the dividers are 10.5 so they pop up nicely. I keep my stamps in bins- (Florals, Holiday, Sentiments, Backgrounds, Critters, and Other.) I finally put those dividers in each bin to separate each stamp set by manufacturer. 


As I did this I ran across two of my favorite Christmas stamps and thought they'd work well for this challenge.  Merry Monday's prompt for challenge 273 was to use red and turquoise.  This is such a fabulous combination I was happy to play along.



I heat embossed the images and used Arteza brush pens for the coloring. They are strikingly similar to the zigs, and I got a great deal on amazon - 48 for $24.00 in a flash sale.  They have a thicker/sturdier brush tip but other than that for me they are just about the same as the zigs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I like these - the colours don't look forced and the designs are clean and simple and would work for other occasions with different stamps.
