ABC Challenge - Y is for.......



This week we have reached the letter "Y" on the ABC challenge and the theme is "Yesteryear".
You have to dig out the very first stamp that you purchased and use it, explaining a little bit about it.
I decided to use the first unmounted stamps that I bought several years ago, I remember thinking "I don't think this will catch on" lol! Anyway, I'm glad it did otherwise I'd need a bigger house by now with my stamp collection.
The stamps are by Magenta from the set "Life Is Beautiful". I can't remember where I bought them but it would have been online. I've coloured the images with WHSmiths watercolour pencils and used Pebbles Inc chalk around the edges (earth tones). The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and the Prima flowers have been attached with a Queen & Co brad.
