March Recap - lots of inspiration!

Hellloooo, stamping buddies! It's Bibi here today (owner of Rubber Dance), and it's that time of the month again when I share a few of the artwork made with my rubber stamps. Lots of cool stuff that I hope will inspire you! Some of these projects have been published on this blog, some on our  Scandinavian blog , and others again on the DT members' own blogs - so even if you are a follower of this blog I bet there are quite a few you haven't seen before. Many, many photos of great work here today, so just lean back and enjoy the show :-) In alphabetical order: Anita:  Bibi: Eileen (Guest Designer): Gail:  Irit: Kristiina:   Majo: Susan: Susanne: Perhaps you noticed that a lot of our work this month was made with the stamps from the Artist Plate, a design by Katy Leitch
