January 2017 Stamp of the Month

The first Stamp of the Month for 2017 is such a beauty!! Adore You (S1701) is perfect for Valentine's, love, and much, much, more.

The beautiful script font mixed with a very simple typewritten style font gives you more options.

A solid heart with flower outlines would be beautiful in black and white or any color you love.

This stamp is perfect for using the many coloring options, watercolor, Shinhan alcohol makers, watercolor pencils and as I used in my first sample, the blending pen.

It has been a while since I colored with my blending pen
