I finally got around to using this beautiful stamp by CONCETTA KILMER called SERENITY available as a single stamp or as a set of four on Sheet 1, Plate 221 here.

I have been finding it difficult to craft for a while and struggling to get back into enjoying the crafting but hopefully my love of it is coming back and I'll be back to full speed soon.  Well with stamps like this one who couldn't be inspired!

For those that still don't know it - Sweetpea stamps are now doing digital stamps so for those of you who can't wait for your stamps to arrive why not try Sweetpea's digital stamps for immediate inspiration.

I like how her hair turned out using Copics E07, 08 and 09 and  a dark brown pencil.  I think I would make her skin tone more Olive next time although pale skin is synonymous with red hair!

I hope I have inspired you, best wishes and good crafting!


  1. Gorgeous. I recently made a card with this image myself and it just looks so stunning coloured in!
