I really NEEDED to stamp today - lots of things on my mind – but I couldn’t concentrate and wasn’t feeling very imaginative.  So, I stamped up some bits and did quick and easy with backgrounds I’ve already made.

The first one’s Alcohol inks, mounted on a wax resist background, made with waxed paper and a Cuttlebug folder.  All main images (and words) are Penny Black.

This one’s on a Versamagic background – text and flowers, but you’d probably have to enlarge to see the text.

The third one is just inks on glossy card, mounted onto a salted background.

These are beautiful, so glad I'm not the only one to divert myself with crafting, it seems as if it helped?
Usually sorts me out:-)

So simple, so effective and as always stunning use of colour. Something good can come from problems eh?

Just love these backgrounds,I'm torn between the first and second one and possibly the third one?

Stunning! I love all three. Hope a bit of stamping helped you to think more clearly. I spent the morning sat in a little room doing key stage 1 level three SATs. If only I'd had some stamps with me, but I would've distracted them!

You make it sound so easy but cards such as these are not easy to make. Very elegant with your usual amazing backgrounds. Lynne M x
