Time Spent With The Family

For this week’s artwork for The Stampsmith I selected an unmounted stamp called Family Tea. This stamp conjures up times when life was led at a gentle pace, families gathered together for afternoon tea and the sun shone every day!

For some reason it also makes me think about family celebrations, maybe of one the children is celebrating a birthday.

Although I used sepia ink this stamp is beautiful stamped in black and the image is also beautiful tinted with Distress Inks.
