Rubber stamp image I designed

First I'd like to mention that today is my parents 65 th wedding anniversary. I am sure this a hard day for my dad, because my mom is in the hospital. Yesterday my mom had a horrible day, but thankfully today was a very good day for her, and it made my dad feel so much better. Love you mom and dad.

If you read my blog you know I haven't had time for art lately due to family matters, but this morning I came across a rubber stamp that I designed several years ago. This morning I decided to create an easy project using that stamp. So, below is my easy art project for the day.
Several years back, Estelle who owns the rubber stamp company, Stampsmith asked those on her Yahoo group if anyone would like to design a rubber stamp that would be made into a rubber stamp. All the images that were submitted would be placed on one sheet of rubber and produced  for sale. Stampsmith
First let me mention that I can't draw for beans, but I did design an outline stamp of a cranberry vine with berries and submitted my design to Estelle.
Below is my rubber stamp and also a photo of the image stamped in Memories black onto a leather disc. cranberry n vine image I designed stamped on leather2

I probably should have heat set the black ink, because it bled some when I colored the image on the leather disc with Prismacolor ink pens. I added a magnet to the back of the disc.
I bought a big barrel full of different sized leather discs years ago at a fabric store. I enoy stamping on the leather pieces and I have used the leather pieces in many art projects over the years. They made wonderful convention pins when everyone was trading pins.

What a cool stamp you designed! And now that I know more about cranberries from your previous blog, it really means more.
