Fishy Stamp Set Illustrations


Phyllis & Finn the fish handmade card by Jill Dewey Hawkins.
Meet Phyllis & Finn the fish!  This is the June Animal House release at Technique Tuesday. The watercolor background is inspiring.  I have so many visions of variations on this technique.  Can't wait to play.  Jill is one of the designers at Technique Tuesday.  I always love what she works her magic with my illustrations.

Here's the full stamp set.  Goofy sayings!  I had help with the words.  I'm working on a giraffe right now.  Pretty sure her name will be April The Girrafe.

Love You Owl - Stamp Set


Love You Owl
This is my fourteenth owl illustration for Technique Tuesday.  His eyes are goofy.  I know. He's targeting you with his eyes for lloovvee. Ha!

I have two owls in the queue, one for March and one for April.  The March owl is holding a stuffed rabbit and he's a baby. Eek, I'm excited to share that one. I have a pen & ink drawing of the April owl idea on Instagram. That one is pretty normal but should be fun to color.

We made a bunch of projects last Tuesday with the new release. My friend Karen and I used this little cutie. There's a stamp set called You Aren't Normal that I think is perfect for all the things you REALLY want to say in a card! Karen used those sentiments on her card.

Frederick & Fiona Fox - Fox Stamp Set

Frederick & Fiona Fox
Introducing my fox illustrations! I had a bunch of little fox sketches in my art book that were strong contenders for the stamp set but we finally settled on these two guys.

Technique Tuesday is offering Frederick and Fiona as a 4" x 6" stamp set! I'm feel lucky to be able to design for such a great company. Well, I'm lucky to be able to illustrate for a living!

Also, Frederick & Fiona have a super cute and clever little biography you can read here.
