It's a giant schroom

I just couldn't wait to use my new stamps from Jo's Stampotique collection - which I bought from Moira's Happy Daze.    They didn't arrive until this afternoon - and I really should not have spent any time in my studio - but I just HAD  too.

On Jo's blog she has used this large schroom stamp - and it looks absolutely delightful on her project  - go and have a look.

I was on 'borrowed' time when I made this tag - I should have been making our tea.


I couldn't reproduce her fantastic double tag card - but I could just play to get the feel of the stamp.
I used a tag with K&Co paper on top.  As usual  it looks much better in real life.
I also used the free stamp from this months Craft Stamper magazine, and the mini bee from Jo's collection.

(I only made the one tag - but cos the light was so bad, I tried taking a photo on two different backgrounds.)

I will spend more time next week playing with them - I just need to get an ink pad or two.  The stamps are lovely to use as they are mounted on lovely thick and rounded wood.  They stamp really clearly too.  Most of my stamps are unmounted, and I do struggle at times to get a clear stamped image - usually resorting to standing on them (on the floor, I'm too old to do that on my craft table - in case some of you have over active imaginations!)  But these stamps are a joy to use - and I will definitely be getting some more of them.

Lottie I love it! What a wonderful Mushroom. My cat is still attached to the front of the magazine (the stamp that is - I don't have a real cat!) as it has been so busy at work. I might just get the chance for a play this weekend. Hope you have a good weekend x

Wow, that would be one HUGE shroom (or one very small kitty!). Great tag Lottie, glad you're having fun with the stamps and congrats on being first! (I sympathise with the "titian" hair and freckles ;o)

Another beauty - I can guess that cat's after catching the bee - tho' he may regret it.
