this one has been in my stack of unfinished. i thought if i put one of my favorite stamps on it, i would suddenly like it. wrong. now i am just annoyed that i wasted such a pretty stamp. i've been making quite a few duds lately. but they are useful in that i can use them to mail uber-favorites that i have been liking too much to even mail. as long as the uber-favorite is smaller than the dud.
a few days later i added the pitcher, cut out of the edge of the joplin stamps. i also added that pencil line and will ink it if i find a 005 pen. it didn't reach favorite status, but it's not my least favorite.
