D. Morgan Stamps

One of my new blogging pals, Paige, is also a D. Morgan stamp fan. I thought that maybe I should share some of the D. Morgan creations I have done with her. I'm trying to encourage her to try coloring them.  I'm CERTAIN that she is up to the challenge and her creation will turn out beautifully.  (Just visit her blog and you'll see why I'm certain - her work is sooo pretty!)

To be sure, the D. Morgan artwork is a bit daunting for me.  Sometimes I have to practice quite a while before I feel comfortable enough to actually make a card for someone!  But artistic talent is not my strong suit, it doesn't come naturally to me.

Paige, this post is for you so that you can see my attempts and know that you can master a D. Morgan stamp!  Go ahead, give it a go!!!  Hugs.








This last is the back of the stamp (wood mount).  I tried coloring 7 images of this one for Lauren's swap on SCS.  (get a napkin before visiting her blog - you're gonna drool!)  No luck. Just couldn't get the colors right.  But one day I will!

I have many more D. Morgan stamps in my collection, most have never seen ink since I just know that they are beyond my coloring skills at this time.  But that's ok.  Gives me something to work toward!

Don't be timid - Paige!  We are our own worst critics, aren't we?!
Hugs!
