Second lot of "stamp" swaps .. this one is the
"castle/houses" stamp. Again its hybrid .. I
stamped it then scanned that, added the
digi background and printed those; then I hand coloured
them with watercolour pencils and Lumiere paints and
completed them by re-stamping over the top to
give more definition. Lets hope my fellow swappees
like the result.

This is my matchbox shrine for Hotluca

who wanted "dark, mysterious and out there" !!

The tree come from the door of a castle, the "lady" inside is Morrigan, Irish goddess of War, and the tassell and beaded lace was once

part of a risque ladies costume for a roller skating act in the 1920s.

I wonder if that is mysterious enough??

This is my own page for a "one at a time page" cj ... you
just send the page, not the whole cj. My theme is
"East is ....." and I thought anything Indian, Chinese or Japanese
would fit the bill nicely. This is Mumtaz Mahal ... for whom the
Taj Mahal was built.
