  9. Hi Monika
    I'm back again to tell you that the stamp set I used is a very old one called Lizzie Ann Designs Hallow's Eve stamp set. I have to admit that my Kuretake watercolour paints don't get as much love as they should either:( Maybe we should make a pact to pull them out more often lol!
