Forgotten Friday 9- Dream

Hi folks, it's Friday again, and time to raid my craft room for some forgotten or neglected stash. This week, I have chosen to use two stamps that I bought a year ago, after seeing a lovely project in the Craft Stamper magazine by Jo Capper-Sandon. I wanted to make something similar as a present for a special person. Time got in the way, and the stamps didn't get used.
Anyway, I decided that this spot was a good excuse to get them out and give them an airing. The stamps are both by Lost Coast, and are lovely, I will use them again, now that I've recovered them! I've used a particular colour scheme, as this card has a destination. It was hard to photograph the Glossy Acents on the decoupaged butterfly, so please forgive the funny camera angle.
I have stamped the image onto Hot Pressed watercolour paper, hence the slight texture of the paper, but I really like to use this medium for stamping. I have used Polychromos pencils to colour the image.
I love the dreamy quality of this image, and the text fits the image perfectly. I chose not to use the other two portions of the definition, which were Magic and Love.
Don't forget to leave a link in your comment if you manage to join in with my Forgotten Friday post, and I'll pop along to your blog to have a look. Don't worry if it's halfway through next week either, as I'm away this weekend, visiting my parents, and going to the GNPE Show at Harrogate, so I won't be back until Monday.
Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

I love what you have done with these stamps and it all goes together so well. I'll be digging into my stash to find something to use. Enjoy your weekend away.

Lovely card Judith. I love this image, although I haven't succumbed to buying the stamp just yet - also inspired by Jo CS.

Gorgeous colouring and those pencils are workring really well for you.

Well, I succumbed to the lure of this lovely stamp Elaine, probably about the same time as Judith and for the same reason. Unfortunately she hasn't been inked up yet! What a shame.

It's a beautiful card Judith and I know where it's going after our lunch today, lol,!
