Gingersnap Creations - pencils challenge

This is a card I created for the Spicy Supply challenge at Gingersnap Creations with the theme of "pencils". My card is an inchie collage card - well, almost...my squares are 1 1/4". There's a great tutorial by Ali Manning about this technique HERE and just for fun I took pictures of my masterboard before cutting it up into squares. The first shows just the stamping, and the second shows it colored with distress inks and of course, colored pencils!


Stamp credits: Lost Coast Designs, Oxford Impressions, Stampington and Co., and Alpha Stamps.

Can you please share the maker of the pencil stamp? I've been looking for a unique stamp with pencils for several years, and love this one!
