A new year a new swap!

Please scroll down for details of the stamp man blog hop and award.
So the new year brings a new theme for The Stamp Man atc swap.

as always the theme has been chosen by one of our past winners and is Rhymes and Tales

This lovely nursery rhyme popped straight into my head as I had not yet used this tiny pear stamp I bought from the single stamp section at HQ

For those of you not familiar with it it goes

I had a little nut tree nothing would it bear

but a silver nutmeg and a golden pear

The King of Spains daughter came to visit me

All for the sake of my little nut tree.

I found another verse and the history of the rhyme here

What a useful site!

Stamps I used are from tim holtz - fir branch and crackle and pear from the Stamp Man. Ive also used distress inks to stamp with Crushed olive and wild honey. The little nutmeg has been done with a silver gel pen.

Looking forward to seeing what you fab folks come up with this month do stop by the atc blog for more DT inspiration too x
