The Stampman - Poppy Mirror

This is the third year that The Stampman are holding their Annual Awards. They have asked for us to show our best or favourite piece of work we have created over the past year. Not an easy task, choosing, for looking back, it has been a prolific year for me, for I am now on three Design teams. However, the item I have chosen is my favourite for personal reasons. I altered this cheap IKEA mirror for a friend for a gift, which was in September this year. I first painted the mirror with blackboard paint. I stamped the Poppies and the lettering with Elusive Images stamps, the butterfly is from Lyndsay Mason stamps. I used several shades of TH Distress Inks to watercolour paint the images. The images are glued on rather than stamped directly onto the board.


  1. A beautiful piece, Caz! Happy New Year!

  2. This is a stunning frame Caz and a perfect choice for the Stamp Man Awards, thank you for sharing it with us.
