New April SOTM from CHF



Cornish Heritage Farms released their new April Stamp of the Month today, and it is a gorgeous image called Fawn in the Grove. In case you are new to Cornish Heritage Farms stamps, each month a new Stamp of the Month (SOTM) is released and offered for 20% off. When the month is over, it is no longer 20% off, so you definitely want to grab this one at the cheaper price.

The fawn image is stamped on watercolor paper and then colored with a water brush and Memento markers (from the Cornish Heritage Farms store). I simply scribbled the markers onto a plastic surface and picked up the ink with a water brush and painted the image. It's a quick and easy way to color without dragging out all my reinkers or watercolor pencils or crayons or other coloring mediums.

Would you like to see more artwork with this fawn stamp? Check out the gallery HERE for more inspiration. To purchase the stamp, click here - you can buy this either mounted on a wood block or cling mounted.

Have a great day!
