Waste Nothing,or Serendipity in action!

Just to prove that there really is no such thing as scrap to a crafter. All of these images were stamped onto 'waste' paper that I was rolling off excess ink from my brayer onto.The purple one was a sheet I had started to make a background on, then didn't like, hence the pale 'moon' , so I had put it in my scrap paper pile. When I bought this owl stamp (Crafty Individuals) ,and the treeline stamp, (Crafty Individuals) they seemed like the perfect partners to these.I probably couldn't have made more perfect backgrounds for these stamps if I had been trying.Needless to say, I now look at my sheet I'm rolling off onto as a potential new background and change to a new one before I turn it muddy!

Shaz, you are tempting me again to spend more money. Love the stamps, and love the use of discarded and scrap paper to create a masterpiece.
