Tina's Nasturtium Collection #2: Nasturtium Stamps for Stamping and Scrapbooking

Good morning. Tina here. I am going to show you my Nasturtium Stamp collection. They are all wooden except for two, one metal and one just rubber with no backing to it. I am not a stamper or a scrapbooker, but I have used them a bit. I used the first stamp I am showing you, the nasturtium flower fairy, to stamp onto tissue paper, colored it in, and put it on a candle. Unfortunately, over time, the ink I colored it in with faded. But it was pretty while it lasted. If I were a more accomplished stamper, like my crafty sister Lori, I would use these stamps more. Maybe someday. But for now they are mainly just part of my "extensive" (as they say) nasturtium collection.
This is my favorite stamp. I love the little Nasturtium Fairy, and orange is my favorite color.

This is a metal stamp on a wood block, and has been used a lot, the wood is stained from ink. I think it is a printer's stamp.
Well, that is it, only twelve nasturtium stamps. I am always on the lookout for more.
