Squiggly Ink

Paper Artsy's new range of stamps 'Squiggly Ink' are a lots of fun to work with.

I had a spare hour to myself last night - something which I havent had for what seems like forever, as my eldest has been very poorly, and so sat and had a play with the new stamps to relax my mind.

This range has endless mileage as they intertwine and work so well together. Here are a few ideas...four of many I have buzzing around in my head for these stamps, but unfortunately time to create isn't possible right now due to needing to put family first.

I used old crossword puzzles and adverts from the 'singles' section in the local paper :0)))
Please click to enlarge if need be.

Here is a range of small note cards...


And heres a hanging which is about 5" tall plus the ribbon.
