Matthew's Stamps

Hi, My eldest son Matthew gave me the most beautiful stamps for Christmas (amongst other things) and finally I have a chance to blog the results!

Firstly, here is the catapillar, I have mixed him with another toadstool stamp so he is not on his own!

\These fairies were sitting on thin air on the stamp, so I gave them a beautiful chair, using the same toadstool stamp.  This gave me a chance to have a go at masking, which I usually avoid!!  The fairies are coloured in using the water colour pencils which were another christmas present (aren't I the lucky girl!!) and then I mica'd the wings to give them a beautiful glint at the card turns.
