I pulled out some of my old favorites from when I started stamping and here's my result:
All woodblock stamps, I used G2991 Friends Background, from 2004, F2621 A Real Violet and F2623 A Real Flower Drooping, both from 2002.
No bells or whistles, dies or sequins, just stamping in it's purest form. I used mini ink cubes (another thing that I believe Hero Arts pioneered back then with their little shadow ink cubes) to ink up these stamps, "huffing" on them before stamping. I've always loved the look of text on cards, and this one is just right, in memory of the friends we all made through the Hero Arts Flickr group.
I have so much gratitude for Hero Arts for starting me on this journey! Here's to at LEAST 45 years more!
