Bethlehem


This is one of 2 new Bethlehem stamps available from Stamposaurus. They were originally cross stitch designs and have been made into stamps. When I first received the stamps to make samples I thought they were quite a challenge to colour but they look stunning when finished. The photo really doesn't do it justice.

Hi Marianne. Wasn't too sure when I first looked at this card but the more I looked, the more detail I could see. Very clever design and a card that people will really look at and not just glance at! Your great colouring has really brought this amazing stamp to life. Have a lovely day. Hopefully will see it at Sandown on Friday. Hugs, Carol S.xx
