Yep me on the stamp for my own country, Canuckistan, and I built that building stone by stone :-)

Shot in my tiny home studio. Used a flood for the hairlight and bounced flash to get the rest of the face. Tried to get a more engaged look than the usual dour stare seen on stamps and currency.

Used a vintage-y New Romantic era blouse that I've had since the 80s, and a pearl brooch/choker I made. Had fun playing with my hair, made it look short and restrained by twisting it into a kind of bun. The building is the town hall for Oxford Mills.

The pp on the port drove me half mad but I finally figured it out how to do it thanks to an online tut. Now let's see what everyone else thinks of Canuckistan!

Snaffles I love this stamp. I expected it to place much higher. I wondered who the beautiful model was. Now I know. (smile)

What a well executed image. I feel it would have helped to have a stamp boarder. Still very nice.
