Stamps Anyone?

What do you do with all those not quite perfect or surplus to requirements stamped images?... I put them in the bit box.... well you never know when they might be needed.... like now!


LTDO have stamped collage as their theme this week, so I spread all those little treasures on the desk and photographed them....... And printed my own paper!

And made a journal!........

And I'll always be able to print more...... or for something a little different I'll just shuffle them around and photograph them again

Debbie S said...

What a great idea, but I can't believe you have that many stamped images sitting around. I should do that so that when I stuck for inspiration I have something to start me off.

Sherry said...

Brilliant! You are truly inspirational!

Julie Kirk said...

That's a genius idea! I think you should produce a full paper range to sell through Jean's shop.

I'll look forward to the Efemera Ink empire! :)

I do exactly what you do, I put mine in a cigar box and then when I'm looking for a quick stamped image, I go to my trusty cigar box and I'm in business. But I personally think what you did, taking the photo and then making paper with them, that is an awesome, great idea. And it turned out so wonderfully. You can't even tell it's paper, the way the images lay on one another it looks dimensional. Exceptional idea, thank you!!

There is a stamp in your picture that I would love to know where I could get it. It's a girl with a wide head, bob haircut, she has buttons going down the front of her shirt and the words "universe" (I believe) going across her belt. Can you tell me where I could get her??
