Forgotten Friday 14 Venetian Compilation

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

Oooh, love the crackle Judith. A beautiful elegant card using a stamp set which is one of the few CB sets I don't have.

HI Judith. Many thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I think your forgotten Friday has inspired my to have a look through my unfinished projects. Hope you've had a good weekend.
