Oxford Impressions New Stamps


I have been having so much fun experimenting with lots of new stamps from the newest collection at Oxford Impressions
I'm working on an Altered book. Here's the front cover. I used the new stamps from Farm Boy and a couple images from Country girl. Isn't it just fun! and right in time for planting season! Added some chicken wire, moss and a copper name plate. I covered the book with Ferro and Tera, It really looks like old rusty metal. I'll be sharing more as my book progresses!

You know that feeling when you catch a glimpse of something and stop dead in your tracks for a longer look because it's so incredible? That's what happened when I clicked over from GS to your blog.

Love this book cover!!! I can't wait to see more! But I'm guessing you don't live in Kuna because you own a farm. This is chicken wire not barbed wire. *giggle*

Blessings,
Christine

Oh, Lynn, that is COOL!!! You have the best ideas (and you always make 'em work, too!). I just added chicken wire to my shopping list, although I have no illusion that I'll be able to put it to use as brilliantly as you did. Well done, honey!
