Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This weeks idea is to use a stamp in a different way.
I purchased this Penny Black stamp before the holidays , and it is called
"Ode to Christmas"  For some reason I didn't ever get to it and it
has been in a basket of stamps waiting for ink until now.

I was looking it over and decided to use my water based markers (I used Tombow and
color right on the stamp with them (you can't use Copics!)  I made
the berries look like Spring buds on the branch and colored the little
Chickadee in.  So instead of being a winter stamp, it can also be used all year
