Forgotten Friday 36- Some old and new



Hi folks, a quick post today, as I'm travelling Northwards to visit my Parents for the weekend. My card this week is not strictly all forgotten stash, as it was not made solely for this post. However, there is enough hoarded stash that I am bending the rules to use it!

I made this card for my Nephew's Birthday recently, using Pan Pastels. It was the first time that I had ever tried using these, and I love the vibrancy that they give on projects. I gessoed over some Viva Terra that I had brushed through some sequin waste. I then added some pastels to give some base colour, and then stamped with Versamark and used the pastels again to get a stronger colour laid onto the card. I then added feature stamps with Stazon . I used a piece of Stampbord as the main section, adding an ideology clock and spinner for an element of interest. It's hard making cards for lads, and I know that he was pleased with his card.


Have a rummage through your stash, and if you make a project with your forgotten items, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, xx
