Embarrassing First Use Of Stamp

A day late posting for this month’s challenge at FSC, so sorry, the theme is “One For The Girls” which the lovely Dot has picked.

The main focal point on my journal page is a fabulous dylusions stamp by Dyan Reaveley.
Yet another one of those stamps which hadn’t been inked until today, but she was bought in 2014!!!

Read on to see how I knew exactly when I bought it.

I first saw this stamp on my teamies blog Avril – you can see her lovely make here.  It gave me so much inspiration.
That was in August 2014… promptly bought the stamp and you can guess the rest … didn’t even use it.

To be fair moi didn’t realise how big she was.

Avril used it on another gorgeous piece here in February 2015 –
you should read my comment then – so totally embarrassing – not for Avril but for me.

Another stunning make here yet again from Avril in September 2016.
My comments are now making me red faced because the poor stamp has only just seen ink …

over three years later and I think it is now discontinued.


Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.

Ink Art Designs Etsy Shop is sponsoring FSC and they will be offering a stamp for the winner of each new challenge.

My art journal is also dylusions but again it was bought years ago and this is only the second page used.
First pages below.

To be fair I don’t think I am the only one like this, most crafters take ages to use their stash.

 The book is Dylusions Creative Journal and the stamp set is called – ‘Walk In The Park’.  Not sure if both are discontinued.
