The Talking Swan

Well, sort of.

Given how crazy I've been with the vintage stamps, it was only a matter of time before I got around to stamping my swan.

Next stop: my forehead.

Oh, and still on my current obsessions. The lace-and-romance look has found its ways into my plush flowers. This is a custom order for a sweet lady. We're not quite done yet, but I'm proud of these flowers already, so I thought I'd post them here.

Loving the flowers, such delicate centres with the lace. Never stop the stamping, it looks fab!
(what type of ink do you use? I've got some small letters I want to use on some of my work but am yet to decide on what ink to use) ;0

Meplusmolly, I use fabric ink, although I figure I could also use acrylic paint. Haven't tried it yet though.

Salut, Anne. J'ai compris :) et merci beaucoup!

Ms. Firefly, yep, it's me, but that was a looooong time ago. Of course, I'm still flattered, thank you. Good luck on the race!

Thank you for the encouraging words, EVERYONE. Am thinking of making more stamped swans, this time with pieces of poetry floating in its feathers. Wish me luck!
