woyww - leaf stamps

Really liking the new stamps from Dylusions.  I have stamped them on old book pages and was colouring the leaves when I remembered to stop and take a photo.  I am thinking of using them for the last page of my art calendar journal. I have been following Kate Crane's site since the beginning of the year and decided to join in and now I can't believe I have nearly finished.  The bonus being I have a calendar journal with all the little details of what we have been doing this year.

Clever Morti correctly guessed that the "brown thingy" on my desk from last week was a wood carved fabric stamp.  A little gift is flying her way.

Hopefully by next woyww I will have started a few xmas cards.   I am sure I will get some inspiration from visiting all the other woywwers today.

  1. Like those flowers. (The ones you haven't coloured in yet.) And you could use that wooden stamp as a mold for that paper casting method I mentioned last week. Then you would have a 3D textural thingy you could use.

  14. I love stamping on old books, great look. Must hunt some out but the problem is that I love old books too much to cut them up, or stamp on them for that matter!!!
