  6. This is so cute and pretty! I love the little grape stamp. :)
    How did you stamp it in different colours though? Do you paint each item on this stamp a different colour and then stamp it - and if so, how do you do it so quick that the paint doesn't dry before you're done?


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. It means a lot and I appreciate you!
