Lovers Pillow ~ Fashionable Stamping Challenges



I've come over all romantic for the latest challenge at FSC which is Mail time (Anything About Postage - Postcards/Stamps/Envelopes/Letters) We are very lucky to be sponsored by Leo at Flonzcraft who is offering the winner of the prize draw $20 to spend in his store. Please be aware we are a stamping Challenge and do require some stamping on your project and definitely no digis please. For lashings of  loveliness do pop over to the FSC blog to see what the other Stampettes have been up to.


My little pillow has a pocket for storing love letters and photographs from your Amour and has been stamped in sepia archival ink using a variety of mail art stamps and of course the beautiful Serena from the Stampsmith.


A little hand made flower from die cut felt and lace.

It would be lovely if you could share your mail art creations with us this fortnight at FSC.

Take care and Happy Stamping xxx

I am entering this for the following challenges

Utterly inspiring Paula. I could so easily see your stamped fabric used as a background too. And the lace completes it beautifully. Love it. Hugs, Jenny x

Back again Paula, to comment this time. What can I add? This is a beautiful, beautiful piece of work. I love that you've reminded us all of the old (Victorian?) way the ladies would keep their romantic letters close to them. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us this month at Country View Challenges.
