Well folks, it's Friday again, where has the week gone? It's time to rummage through your forgotten and neglected stash again and create something with what you find. I was looking through my wood mounted stamps, barely used these days, and came across an old favourite of mine, that I have had for years; 'Italian Poetry Background' by Hero Arts. I love all things Italian, ecxept maybe the Mafia, and I used to love using this stamp. I dug out some bits and pieces to use with it. I have used a chandelier by B-Line stamps, an elegant lady by Chocolate Baroque, and a lovely lace stamp also by Chocolate Baroque. I have used a crackle stamp by Crafty Individuals, as my background looked too 'new', and I wanted a faded, elegant feel to the whole piece.
I have kept my colour scheme quite simple, and added some black Stickles for a little bit of bling. I made a flower from Black Bazzil, spritzing it with water so that I could scrunch the layers up, and then dried it with a heat gun to set the layers in place.
I enjoyed making this card, I haven't managed much crafting lately, and it's been good just to relax and mess about in my craft room. Don't forget, if you have a chance to make something, leave me a comment, and I'll stop by and take a look. Thanks for popping by, Judith xx
