i bought a big packet of stamps for less than face value. they were all 25-cents, but i only had to pay 20-cents. it seemed like a bargain, but, they are not really very pretty. some are. but this one seemed so bad, i didn't think i could make anything pretty with it. but, i love a good challenge.
what i really dislike about the stamp is the flag, the red and blue and that diagonal. yuk. but then i looked at that cool grid work on the left. i don't know what it is, but i love it. so, i did a loose interpretation on the lettering and now it looks just fine to me. the scan isn't very good because blue does not scan very well. so squint and pretend it is blue-er.
