These stamps from Papermania were long awaited and I bought almost the entire range, in fact this was the last collection I bought from them. I am a huge Roald Dahl fan, this was the first book I can remember reading on my own late at night with a torch way past my bedtime. My Aunt bought it for me and she could see the love I had for it so for christmas she bought me the sequel and James and the Giant Peach (my absolute favourite). Before then I mostly read Enid Blyton (another favourite), Roald Dahl had a very different way of telling stories and he captured my imagination.
When the collection arrived (I pre-ordered it) the images were tiny and I was a bit apprehensive to colour them, in fact its taken quite sometime and a bit of a sort out to discover them again. I got the colours from a book cover I found on google, its much brighter than the one I found but I like bright lol.
I am hoping the recipient (also a huge Roald Dahl fan) likes it. I didn't do anything fancy with the background I wanted the book to be the star, the page isn't from a real book but a paper pack, although I have to say this would be perfect if there was a range of classic book stamps, to include your favourite page on the front of a card, mmm could also be pretty rude depending on the book lol.
