Hello! - inching artists

The last time I checked inching artists, the theme was "Hello!"It wasn't an easy theme, so it took me a while to figure out what to do till I came up with these two inchies. (You should start by reading the lines of the doll, so that the lines of the parrot make sense.)

In the beginning of his career as a primary school teacher, my father bought lots of stamps to use with his pupils. The ones you can see in the "Hello!" inchies are part of two different sets. The beautiful doll belongs to the "objects" set and the naughty parrot is part of a set named "bonecos" (something like "puppets") -that's my favourite set. Anyway, they're all great stamps considering their age. They're about 30 years old and are still in very good shape. All right, I admit they've spent most of their lives closed in the boxes they originally came in. But if in the past they didn't have much use, that's about to change... ;-)
