The Three Muses Challenge - Postage Stamps


I googled this postage stamp from an issue featuring famous Australians.  It can be a lot of fun making postage stamp people by adding a body to the stamp.  Takes some moving around and trickery. The body I used is from a 1930's fashion collection by Tangie Baxter.
