P is for..

We have an Egypt Centre here in Swansea.  My sister-in-law has a part-time job there - she's always been fascinated by Ancient Egypt and her degree in in Egyptian Studies.  So for this fortnight's Craft Barn Alphabet challenge, inspired by the ancient Egyptians, I've chosen "Papyrus".

The stamp is from Clarity, and yes, that is real papyrus it's been stamped on - in Tuxedo Black Memento, as it happens.  I've coloured it with Promarkers, so if you were desperate to know whether or not they worked on papyrus, well, now you do!  According to my SIL, the Egyptians loved bright colours (to quote her, "They'd have used glitter if they had it!") so I've chosen nice bold colours.  I hope you like it!
