    It's not exactly "extending the scene" but I was inspired by the background of these stamps to pull out my watercolors and just play. Then, in the spirit of choosing a word for the year, I came up with these watercolor insects:

    Compassion

    I may finish some of my half made cards today but I'm working and it may take all of my time.

    Did you watercolor the background of those stamps, or did they come that way. The cards are amazing.

    I never know how to use the Bugs Bunny cards. You did a great job on the PLAY card. I do tend to just give those stamps away. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Some stamp people cards - I had so many ideas and so many stamps, but I don't think I'll have time to make any more. Really enjoyed all the great stamp cards!

    ^^^ THIS! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's art, and the creative ways you're using stamps on cards. I ran out of time to finish my berry stamps (2 more in the series) and to work on the other ideas I had. I could probably do a stamp a thon every weekend and still run out of time : )

    Is anyone thinking of hosting an ATART or postage stamp athon in Feb? There's nothing scheduled until April. I'm hooked on athons!

    Here are the last of my current set of ladies:
    Attachment 228895#36 Attachment 228896#37 I think that Queen Elizabeth looks quite good steampunk

    These last 3 use panels from a greeting card that jo.on.the.go sent me, with the comment that it would make good cards. I hope she approves. . .
    Attachment 228897#38 Attachment 228898#39 Attachment 228899#40

    I am way behind on reading the thread but I have to go to bed as it is now 2.30am (totally lost track of time making these cards ) and I have to be up for a 9.30am appointment.
    Goodnight all and happy creating

    My granddaughter Emma made this cat stamp card using a faux stamp. Actually it might be a REAL stamp ...

    The stamps were already those colors. I just looked at them and pulled out some watercolors that matched and made the cards. It was fun.
