Three Muses: Postage Stamps

Our challenge this week was to use a postage stamp image in some way. One of the suggestions was to create a "postage stamp person." I'd never heard of this, but my imagination took hold and this digital collage is what I came up with.  I used a postage stamp image of an exotic young woman from Google Images (shown below), and gave her a pretty setting to relax in and a skirt to match her outfit. Other image credits: rubyblossom, flickr creative commons (ms. bailey), miss mint.

I'm so impressed with this duo. The way you have worked your most beautiful stamp into the room scene is nothing short of wondrous. FANTASTIC.
