I was blessed to have spent a college semester in Hawaii many, many years ago - so this stamp said, "traditional Hawaiian quilt" to me the instant I saw it - lucky for Hawaiians that they don't really need cozy quilts, but they sure are beautiful to look at!
sometimes there's just no denying that I am, absolutely, an English perennial garden/shabby chic kind of girl - so this label stamp speaks to me in so many ways! I stamped a white-on-white striped pattern with pigment ink and then used the label stamp to create an all-over "wallpaper" feeling. (the English LOVE their wallpaper, you know ;) when I paired the background with a bit of royal blue it reminded me of my much loved/much used "blue willow" china . . .
