These are the 4 cards to be made at the Workshop on Thursday. (Set aside the bad photo and cropping skills...those are on my huge 'things to improve before I die' list). I bought the stamps with the intention of using them in a workshop, and I only ever buy stuff that I like and want to keep. But oh boy, I had a LOT of trouble finding inspiration for these characters. I still feel actually that apart from stamp, colour and cut out, there's not much to be done with them. And they're too small to just sit on a card without exaggerating the proportion of everything else; good grief, not for the first time, I went off a range of stamps before I'd even had a chance to get ink on most of them. How strange. Am I alone? My collection is much smaller than it used to be, but nevertheless, my stamps talk to me - they say inspiring words when I look at them. But this lot are literally smirking at me because I don't quite 'get them'. Gawd, perhaps they're too young for me? Aaagh. Moment of realisation and awful epiphany - even craft has age related trends. Have to run, they aren't going to be allowed to sit on the shelf smirking at me because I'm too old, that's for sure!
