best wishes

Treated myself to one of the new Michael Powell stamps last week. I remember my Mum did a cross stitch of his many years ago that I always admired so had to have this stamp!

It was a little tricky to stamp out - bits of the image were missing. But got there in the end. I watercoloured with Inktense water colour pencils.

I am entering the anything goes challenge over on Papertake.

I've got several of his kits as yet unstitched - got one of the stamps as I thought it would be quicker to do something with - it is but only marginally!

I saw these stamps a little while ago and thought they were great but I was quite daunted at the thought of colouring one in, you did a fantastic job Liz, love it. Take care, Lyn x

I'm a big fan of Michael Powell and am so glad he's got some stamps out. This one looks very difficult to colour though.

Like the card you've made very much. xxx
