Well, an artist I am definitely not (a pig, more likely).
There often seems to be a discussion whether stampers are crafters or artists. Seeing certain people's creations, I feel they are very artistic. But really, what does it matter? Craft or art, I loooove this hobby.
While I have tried many other things, stamping is the one craft that I have never tired of. My style seems to remain pretty much the same though. That's probably because I most enjoy the colouring part of it all. Looking back at some images I coloured a few years ago (with markers) I am shocked. Shocked that I thought they were nice enough to mail out, or even worse, given as a gift (gasp). But then, I look at my colouring now and I feel much better about it. I will never be an artist, but I suppose practice really does pay off. Then again, there are so many ways to use a stamp, colouring does not have to be the main focus. That's another thing I like about our hobby!
