Oh Astrid this is sooo beautiful! So much blending to achieve the rustic look going back in time! Love some of those papers and that wonderful rusted
heart - oh to have a little stash of these. I have some wooden ones which I dyed brown and look OK.
All in all beautiful work. I really can see you in your mother's images!
You always make it look so easy!

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!
