I was looking through some of my Penny Black posts didn't realise there are over 400 Penny Black posts and thats only since you could label your posts.
Well I noticed I haven't used this adorable stamp for a while, it is retired and I brought it from PB stamps in the USA but they do work out expensive once you add VAT and Royal Mail fees but the few I have were worth it.
The papers are First Edition which I love but always seems to give me trouble they tend to be an off white that mean I have to tone the white cardstock I use to stamp and colour on which is why the corner is a bit bent, I was a bit too heavy handed.
I'm pretty sure this is a sketch from somewhere but I've forgotten where and I pretty sure the strip across the bottom should be higher.
The swirl is Simon Says Stamps and the flowers are a do-crafts punch but its old now but still works a treat. The butterfly in the corner is a Kars punch, for some reason I having a bit of butterfly moment.
