Naps with Trolls

     I waited years to get this stamp.  It was on the top of my wish list until my Johnny Luv found out and so now it is one of my most treasured stamps.  Coloring this stamp is loads of fun.  Sometimes I add sparkle to the trollie's hair but this time I added flocking.   The trolls' cute little belly buttons are jeweled with Stickles and their eyes are brightened with yellow Prisma pencil, black fine tip Sharpie and then Glossy Accents.

    . Everything really just fell together for this card.  I had colored the image while staying at the hospital with my mom and I just happened to have the exact right flocking at home and these papers matched perfect as did the buttons.  No advanced planning at all was involved.

  1. Oh, that takes me back! My l'il sis collected these little trolls and you couldn't go anywhere in the house without stepping on them, knocking them off the table, moving them out of the way on the desk ......I never thought anyone would find such a good use for them until I saw this. Sleep tight, little meeses, you look so comfortable.
