Even though I haven't had a chance to sit down with my new stamps yet, I thought I would show you a card I made a while back, when the images we're still just files on my computer...
I used a lot of little tiny pieces of paper to make the background "quilt" - a technique perfect for getting rid of those little pieces of left over paper that's too big to throw away, but too small to use properly as well.
...and a close up of the new stamp!
This stamp is called "Pirate girl (S40)". All that's missing is a cutlass... or perhaps a blunderbuss...! ;)
I also used what has to be the most useful swedish sentiment: "Grattis på födelsedagen (T30)" (Happy birthday).
