First Stamp

This is a card I made with the my first stamp purchase when I had very little stash & even less card making knowledge!  The backing paper was free from clip art, I stamped & embossed the dragon fly twice  The wings are layered ( not sure I can call it decoupage ) the second layer was stamped onto vellum then I experimented with.colour &  glitter glue . I finshed the little butterfly with wire & beads.  The sentiment is peel offs. Dragon fly brad & a few tiny pearls that I got from a pound type shop which were meant to be used for nail art . I was quite pleased with it but more importantly so was my sister. It's not scanned all that well its much better in real life as they say..
After this first attempt I saw Glenda Waterworth on Create & Craft & the obsession began. Now I can't move for "stash" & still I want ,want ,want not only more stash but also knowledge.

That is very pretty and I do love dragonflies - so delicate

This is really lovely. Dragonflies and butterflies are my favourite things to stamp.

Are you sure I didn't write the last paragraph of your post Suzy? Word for word it could have come from my head, Lol! I'll probably have a bit more stash by tomorrow night as I'm going up to the Open Day at Graphicus.

Unbelievable. This is so sophisticated. First stamp? Surely not? It's delightful.
