Playing with new stamps-

I was so honored when Roben-Marie Smith asked me if I would like to play with her new Mixed Media Essentials stamps and make samples.  I put down a big sheet of bristol paper and grabbed my brand new spring colored ink pads (FYI - I am a big fan of the Studio G ink pads in the $1.50 bin at Michael's - who knew?!)  I started experimenting and making notes on the sheet when inspiration came my way.

I kept playing and playing until both sides of the 11x17 paper were full.  My samples have been finished for quite some time now but I just can't bring myself to throw this sheet away.  There is something about it that just makes me happy.  In fact, I keep adding to it as I work on other projects. 

Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unlikely places.
