This is a favourite stamp of mine - it is from the Oxford Impressions plate "School Days". http://www.oxfordimpressions.com
It is such a good size - ideal for ATCs of course but versatile!
Today was a long day at work but I have managed to get my return trades completed for the lovely ladies that were willing to do "delayed" trades with me at the Art Retreat. They are all slight variations on this one, a combination of stamping, tissue, stitching and chalk inks -
I received a recent small ebay purchase today in the mail . It was a bit of a mixture - some small sheets of metal mesh, bingo cards and markers, printed twill, mini charm frame etc. I love little "surprises" that get to my mailbox quicker than expected! Can't wait to use them but I have promised myself that I will finish my Pocketbook of Dreams from the Nina Bagley workshop I did at the Art Retreat. I have been oxidising all my copper bits and pieces to use on the book and I like the way it is coming together. Looks completely different of course to Nina's book but that makes it more personal. Wish I had her "touch" when it comes to incorporating sticks and stones...I'll share some pictures when I get it finished.
