Forgotten Friday 11- mixing the old with the new

Hi folks, well it's Friday, so that means it's time for my Forgotten friday post again. I'm sorry that I missed last week, time just caught up with me. I hope that you have been looking through your neglected stash this week, and if you have time, please make something, and leave a comment. I'll pop along to your Blog to take a look.
This week, I am using a couple of new products with my Forgotten stash; Dylusions sprays, and Clearly for Art, modelling film from Wendy Vecchi. I purchased these at the recent Harrogate Show, and have been itching to play with them.
I have based my card this week on some unused Stampotique stamps designed by Jo Capper-Sandon. You may think that these are not particularly forgotten, or neglected, but I bought them, put them in a drawer, and there they have stayed. I love these stamps, and here is an excuse to use them. I have had them for quite a while, as I pre-ordered them before they were available!
I stamped Jasmine, masked her with Eclipse tape, and then stamped the mushrooms, and masked them too. I then sprayed my watercolour paper with the sprays. I coloured my image with Polychromos pencils, and added a butterfly made from Clearly for Art, coloured with caramel alcohol ink.
I stamped the 'Papillon' word stamp onto some scrapbook paper from my stash, and added the sentiment to my picture.
I really enjoyed making this piece, and don't think that I'll put these stamps back in their drawer just yet. I have the bees and Moongirl as well, so there are more possibilities to my layouts. The Dylusions sprays are lovely to work with, and I did buy quite a few colours.
I'm off to Ally Pally tomorrow, meeting up with my Blog friends, and some Chocolate Baroque Guild members. If you are going, and you see me, please say hello. I may be a bit distracted by all of the goodies on display!
Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

Hi Judith, It's great to see you back this week. I love the card and the background looks great with the spray over it. Thanks for the lesson on links, I managed to leave one on my blog this week. Have a great time at Ally Pally.

Hi Judith, I didn't get chance to comment on this fabulous card before we left for Ally Pally but I love it! Those sprays look gorgeous (haven't even squirted one of mine yet, lol). I have coveted those 'shrooms' since I first saw them but haven't got round to buying them yet. I love what you have done with them here.

Was sorry to say goodbye yesterday and hope it's not too long before we all say hello again!
