For a while now, Stampington has a line of rubber stamp images based on sketches of Leonardo da Vinci. When I was a young girl, a neighbor of ours, Charles Dent, built a geodesic dome studio on his farm. His goal was to recreate Leonardo's Il Cavallo - The Horse. The Rennaisance was always my favorite time period in my Humanities courses, and this line of stamps takes me back to a point in my life that exudes treasured memories. The decorative paper is Jenn Starr for Zsaige - I had the priviledge of meeting Jenn Star here in New Jersey two weekends ago for a paper arts class - she is a great teacher and I enjoyed her class immensely. This is a masculine-themed birthday card - interior verse (Impress Rubber Stamps) reads 'the very best on your special day; happy birthday'. Photo punch is mounted with dimesionals.
