I took a little time for myself this weekend. It's a good thing to do on occassion. I received my Rubbernecker order early last week, and had time only to gaze upon it as I rushed paston my way to 'x' and then as I had to be at 'y'. A friend who knows what my schedule was like this past week came over and I showed her all my new stamps. She said I looked like I was positively vibrating to ink these babies up. I don't think she was far from the truth. I've had images running through my head and plans for this stamp since I ordered it!
"Forest Cathedral" - isn't it heavenly?!! *snort* I just had to slip that in! I watercoloured it with reinkers - lots of reinkers!!! I wanted the trees to have different looking colour, just like in the forest, and unstained beams. I have many other ideas for this stamp still. This was just the idea with the biggest itch that I just had to scratch!
