DESK EXPLAINED SOME MORE ...


I was fascinated by the way in which WOYWW people spotted my new Stampotique stamp, and commented that while they rather liked them they'd never actually bought one! Well I'm just the same ... I never could decide whether I thought they were interestingly original or distinctly UGLY, but they have been sneakily growing on me ... so I decided to try this one just to see.

Now I think she's rather nice, and the stamp will be useful for a few things, not least times like today when I just want to send something that says hello to cheer a person up. On the other hand, I still think some of the other images are so ugly as to be downright spooky, and can't get my head around them at all! And what on earth has she got clutched in her other (ie non umbrella) hand? Perhaps its meant to be a handbag, but if so why has it got a sad face on it? Maybe its a turnip lantern or sumfink? Dunno but maybe you do??

Am also publishing a better picture of the ATCs which were also on the desk and aroused some curiosity. I LOVE making ATCs but had sort of got out of the way of it, but have begun to do so again lately in pauses from editing the book. Sniggered madly to myself when making the birdy one ... it just sort of tickled my fancy!

Hi Rosie
I like it, but you couldnt say that it is nice, I think this type of card would be for an adult, I do like it enough to go out and buy it, ATC's are fab very artistic.

Unusual stamps but like you I think they would grow on me and they certainly make really modern cards. Love the one you've made. Atcs are really lovely.

Oh wow, I love that stamp. I don't think I've ever seen that line of stamps before. My guess is the thing in her hand is a dolls head. Spooky little girls play with doll parts not the whole doll. This card is funny to me because my daughter and granddaughter both had a habit of removing doll heads and still playing with them. This card is awesome and I love the Owl ATC, I love owls. Such regal looking creatures. I'd love to see more of the stamp line.
How are you doing? I am feeling much better. Went to work yesterday and the boss sent me home for the rest of the week. I can actually breathe better today. And I did not cough once last night. Now my hubby had the bronchitis too, but doc says caught his early. Only one antibiotic for him instead of 2 and no prednisone for him...
