A few years ago Non Sequitur (wonderful stamp manufacturer in the US) had a competition for items using their images. I sent several items to them but they picked my least favourite to give a Highly Commended award to.
I stamped the image of the man onto glossy card with a permanent black ink. I then overlaid it with encaustic waxes, using clear wax to enable the stamping to show through. The dragon on the front is a nod towards my place of residence – North Wales – and was stamped, embossed and cut out before being attached to the front.
I got the great pleasure of being able to chose a plate of unmounted stamps from any of their collections as my prize – what fun! I did try to stay away from any of the usual stamps that appeal to me and go completely different. I’m not sure I succeeded totally but I did chose a lovely Christmas plate with some unusual images on it. They’ll pop up in other posts around the blog, I’m sure.
