Every once in a while when I need a break from drawing... I turn to carving :) I bought those beautiful vintage postcards from Digital Collage Sheets as a digital download, printed and cut them at home
Thank you so much for your sweet comments, I really appreciate them :)
Regina, I used an Anna Griffin brand green ink pad for this that I picked up at a Michael's or Joann's...I can't remember. But I have a bunch of other ink pads that work really well too, like StazOn and VersaColor. The key is to leave the stamp on the table face up and ink it from the top with the ink pad face down to get a real even coverage.
As you know Genine, I'll be trying to carve my own stamps now. Have found some wonderful fern stencils on-line at scrappingdownunder. Unfortunately she doesn't have a shop - is only three hours drive away, and very willing to help out with ordering anything I need - like ink - stamp pads - tools.
