TMTA "Lamps"


The theme at TMTA is lamps this week, this affords the freedom to either create something christmassy or not. As I just had the perfect Christmas stamp (bought in a closing down sale just last week) it turned out to be christmassy. Main image stamped in black archival ink, coloured with distress inks and water soluable pencils and then an image added from an old French Christmas card I got last summer in France at a fleemarket. Card was scanned obviously as I did not want to cut up the actual postcard. The snowflakes were added with a Ranger white gel pen

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
