ATC Saturday: Fables and Fairytales

This image from Beeswax was the perfect thing for this week's theme.  I almost never use just one stamp on an ATC, but this is an exception.  I felt any additions would detract from the scene.

You can find this stamp under the heading "Large Stamps and Etchings" over at Beeswax.  You'll see that I cropped a lot out in order to fit the 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 size requirement of an ATC.

When working with large stamps, place the stamp face up on the work surface and ink it by "stamping" a raised ink pad all over it.  Then, leaving the stamp right where it is, bring the paper to the stamp.  Cover the stamp with the paper, then roll a clean brayer over the back of the paper to get a solid impression. Finally, peel away the paper to reveal the stamped image.
