Stampendous also sponsored Leigh's 31 Days of Halloween and I was lucky enough to win this fabulous Andy Skinner Fossils stamp set:

The following Daguerreotype shows the interior of the Academy of Natural Sciences, ca. 1840 Ewell Sale Stewart Library & Archives, Coll. 9

The young man seated on the right—known for his keen interest in natural history, chemistry, and phrenology (not to mention his writing talent)—is Edgar Allan Poe.

So thinking of Poe's interest in such things, today's makes feature fossils...

I attended a workshop by Andy Skinner last year and was inspired to make this tag, using acrylic paints, crackle medium and stamping with archival ink:

Today I made this set of ATCs - brown card, scraps of DP from  a Fabscraps 12 by 12 on which I had stamped the fossils and distressed using Scattered Twigs.

I will add these ATCs to the linky!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love your quirky tag and ATCs.
