Playing with ink

I've had a lovely time this afternoon playing with ink, using some of my new stamps that I bought while we were away in Maidstone.

This first card is for Inspirational card sketch 87:

The papers are from Making Cards October issue. The stamp is Joanna Sheel with Personal Impressions coloured with copics. The 'across the miles' sentiment was computer generated and printed.

This is also for:

Craftalicious 10: 'anything goes'
Pear tree designs 22: 'free for all'
Tanda teaser 157: 'going dotty'
Just inspirational 16: 'stamp'
Rainbow lady 122: 'around the world'
Sarah Hurley 13: 'colouring'
Alphabet: 'X for Xmas'
If the shoe fits Fasionista Friday 51: 'a holiday for the holidays' - Christmas
Paper cutz 63: 'anything goes'
Quixotic: 'Christmas is coming'
Lots to do: 'plain and simple'

  15. What a great image, love the stamp, I used to live in a post office when i was a little girl and we had a post box like this on our wall. It was emptyied from inside our post office and as a small child i used to sit inside it and catch the letters as they were posted inside, this brings back so many memories , I may have to hunt out this stamp . Cheers
