One Stamp, Many Ways (#1)

Today I’m starting an occasional series that will show how I’ve used a particular stamp in multiple projects. I try to buy stamps that can be used over and over again… it’s very rare to find something in my stash that’s only been used once.

This post features Dina Wakley’s nurse image.  Clicking the words below the images will take you to greater detail in the original blog posts.

  1. This is such a great post… as I looked at the first few I wondered how she would look positioned at the other side of the project and then, lo and behold, there she was… and it’s fascinating to see how the message of her body language changes when she’s closing away from the page as opposed to opening up to it – very different meaning!! Glorious to see that and to see these wonderful pages and projects again.

  2. Love your approach because stamps that aren’t inked up, well it seems such a lost opportunity.
    Stunning creations with differing results.
    Looking forward to more such posts.
