Harvest Mouse

Every now and again I come across an old stamp and wonder what I could do with it, this stamp must be going on for twenty years old, know it was one of my first buys, found it among the box of old stamps I dismounted from their wood blocks a while ago.  Know its a bit early for harvest but it made me nostalgic for the old corn fields full of poppies and cornflowers, I know the flowers on here are daisies but took a bit of artistic license and made them into cornflowers.  Still not got much mojo going , spent (wasted!) yesterday afternoon playing with stencils and embossing pastes etc with not a lot of success , my main mistake was using inky papers to emboss on and when the pastes dried they had picked up all the ink colours, don't know how people get such fantastic results, time to research techniques instead of just jumping in (story of my life !!!!)
