So Excited!

At long last I have done it! This has been a dream of mine for a long time - to have my very own stamps produced.

This has been a real family affair with my Dad doing the drawings, my husband setting them out on the computer the way I wanted them and me generally bossing everyone around.

I am so pleased with them. Thanks go to Dimension Fourth Ltd for such a great job. After only having a little play with them I am having more and more ideas for these designs.

I hope you like them too, if you would like to purchase a set for yourself please e-mail me at for more details.

Here are a few samples using masking techniques and pro markers for a more contemporary feel and the with inks for a more aged effect.
