My Creative Space...

For a while now I've been thinking I need a nice Chicken Willow stamp to put on my packages and when I discovered that Chantal (my third cousin) does lino printing and can carve a good stamp I asked her to make me one.


Isn't it fantastic!! I went to my local scrapbooking shop this morning and got some nice dark brown ink for it.


I did three prints without re-inking it and I just got three different shades of brown. I like them all. So my day will be spent mucking around with this and maybe making some swing tags with it.

I can highly recommend Chantal's stamp carving abilities if you are in the market for one!

Check out all the other creativeness over at Kootoyoo.

Great idea. It's that little finishing touch that makes life so good, I think. Your cousin is very talented. x

Oh that is just gorgeous. And thank you. You have just reminded me that I need to stamp a whole bunch of paper bags ready for Sunday's market. Mine's a boring old vistaprint job. Might have to get my market neighbour to make me a more exciting stamp like yours!
