double whammy


This week's theme on wednesday stamper is mulberry paper. I have a drawer full of this stuff, because I never use it. I bought it when I first started cardmaking, and I thought it was "the biz" but it's amazing how quickly you move on. I decided I would take the wednesday stamper challenge, and see if I could make something good with it, but I'm still not convinced. I've used 4 different colours of mulberry paper. I water coloured onto the white, just to see how well it took water colour.

the main stamp is innovative stamp creations and was the first unmounted stamp I ever got (I was given it by Jo, a long time ago) and today is the first time I have noticed the little birds on it in the the bottom right hand corner. so as this weeks 4x4 friday theme is birds I thought I would take that as my inspiraton for this piece.

anyway off to put the mulberry paper back in the drawer.
