Reed all about it


Using this reed stamp (Judith) a few days ago reminded me how versatile this stamp is.

I stamped the reeds and coloured the stems and leaves. Then I stamped it again on a scrap of pink and brown patterned paper and paper-pieced the heads (do you call them heads?).  Then I used the rest of the paper as a panel down one side. That's it. Clean and simple!

I'd like to enter this for:
