Singing to be stamped


I know of many rubber stampers who will not buy another rubber stamp until they've used what they already have at least three times. Do I do this? Not really. If I see a stamp I like, I'll go ahead and buy it. LOL! I do think, however, that I'm pretty good about using what I *do* have. It just might not be at least three times before I go ahead and add to my collection. This pretty bird stamp (by The Angel Company) has been sitting on my shelf, un-inked, for quite some time. It was singing (forgive the pun) for attention. I stamped it with dye ink, colored it with COPIC markers and Stampin Up markers. Such a pretty focal image for any card, don't you think? The paper has been in my stash for some two years or so. I'm chipping away at it, but little by little, I am getting around to using my supplies wisely. Thank you for stopping by, today!
