Welcome to our main Stamp Man blog where we will be hosting our future challenges.

The butterfly from that stamp has been stamped onto vellum which was tinted from behind with Solvent pens. The background was made using Adirondack dye based ink and ink dusters. The flowers on the Paris Tag (cut with a TH die and then shortened, the arch at the bottom of the tower has also been cut out with the flowers left trailing) are also coloured with solvent pens. I used Momento black for my stamping including on the vellum.
