I found out something rather excellent. You can stamp on feathers! I used stazon ink to stamp on these ones pictured. I then pressed them between two acrylic stamping blocks then placed the Night watch books on top for a week. (Nothing like Russian tomes on good and a bit evilish to squish things into shape.)
So stamp away sweeties!
PS MAJOR WARNING ONLY STAMP ON FEATHERS YOU FIND AS THE BIRDS GET VICIOUS IF YOU STAMP ON THEM WHILE STILL ATTACHED.
Have had rather a session making cards for the Fire Station Green Fair that takes place in Bury St Edmunds (10-4pm) next Saturday (10th.) Burylets have a stall and the proceeds will go towards our summer party, as I want lots of Pimms I have been making a lot of cards.

Here are some Lavender bags that I made for a most excellent individual who sent me Tim Holtz die cuts thus earning a place in heaven. (Have you noticed the Tim Holtz cult? Grunge has abandonned Seattle and is now a craft material, which means less holey cardigans and frayed jeans and sadly Babes in Toyland.)
I used some stamps from Lavinia stamps who are more than a bit delish although they do sometimes desend into the dreaded twee. However their flower and landscape stamps slap the twee ones on the head firmly and take center stage (like a tory at a teaparty.)

Here are a couple of cards that I made after purchasing stinking (alchiycholic but hic not drinkables) inks the best wishes floral & butterfly stamps are from Inkadinkadoo.
Papers on Butterfly card sown together from scraps of basic grey, acatate mounted over the top which was patterned with the inks.
