I saw this earlier and thought it was beautiful. Didn't realize I'm going to have to save for new stamps. Not a problem. I will have to give it a try using what MS stamps I have to see if I can make something work. BEAUTIFUL

Awesome stamps! These will make a great addition. I'm thinking they would be cool as cutouts with melted crayons on acetate from the backside peeking through for a neat stained glass look.
