Old stamps with new twists



I thought I'd take some old stamps that I've used several times before and combine them with some new stamps and new colours, to see if I could wring yet more life out of them! We all know that stamps aren't cheap, and I'm all for getting as much use out of mine as I can!

In each case the central image was stamped first, in Versafine ink, and then masked while I worked on the rest of the tag. Parts of each image were painted with distress ink pads and a waterbrush.

Click on any image to enlarge it, I hope you like em! :)
