Here's a first outing for a new set of stamps I treated myself to from Woodware, one of my favourite brands.
My newest stamp - and my oldest papers. I had SUCH fun creating this! Way back in the 1990s when I started watching shopping TV, I had a craze for buying Hot Off The Press pads and kits. At first, I kept each pad separate, with any snippets tucked into it, but gradually over the years they've all been whittled down to the point where the few unused sheets and all the viable snippets from all the pads live in a single plastic foolscap wallet, and it's always fun to have a rummage through the snippets and reminisce about cards I have made with them.
This time I was looking for stripey snippets, and found lots of them, far more than I've used here. I also picked out a scrap of texture-effect brown paper which would be good for the stump. I'd been planning to add a piece of white for the seagull but then I spotted a scrap of mottled grey vellum which, with the help of a few strokes of Promarker, has the scruffy grey look of a young seagull that hasn't yet grown its adult plumage.
I am sharing this with
