Stamping Time


Hey, remember this image I posted last week? I doubt it since no-one was intrigued enough to take a guess. Well, the real thing has arrived now and is even better than I hoped.


I got a whole sheet of rubber stamps made with pretty much all my designs! If you check back at the artwork image, you should be impressed by quite how well I used up the available space. I got them from Asspocket Productions on Etsy who I heartily recommend for all your stamping requirements.

And here is my first print, which turned out great, other than me realising I don’t have any red ink. Since then I have stamped most of the designs on various things, some of which I will show you very soon. I have so many ideas of fun things to do with them. Yay!
