Stamps, postage and seals

Yesterday I was working with even more stamps. I had some still that were on paper, so what else there is to do than to start soaking them off.

For some reason I always find the paper the stamps come off of very pretty. I think it's the combination of partial postage stamps, security patterns and old handwriting that makes them so pretty... I have to think of something to make of these. I want to save the feeling of the really old envelopes and corners of postcards, yet make something useful and fun out of them. (And you wonder why I need to reorganize my work space all the time... (Or you probably didn't wonder at all))
