Empty Box Project #1
Yesterday I posted a photo of my big box of unused stamps and announced my self-imposed project to empty the box.
To get me started, I asked my son to randomly pick out three items from the box. I have used the first two.
The first item was this box of stamps:
This box came as part of a scrapbooking kit that I bought for the embellishments and papers. I tested the stamps and you can see below why I wasn't really happy with them:
The second item was the flapper stamp, from Artisitc Stamper, you see in the card above. I can't remember buying it but it had a £1 sticker on it! I have never used it, I think, because of her hand - it looks like it should be doing something, like waving through a window or putting a bauble on a Christmas tree. Using a bit of masking, I made her touch some hanging stars (Sarah Hurley), and added Docrafts text stamp and a Wink of Stella (which of course, you can't see in photo!).
