From Days Gone By...

I was over the moon when my first Tim H stamps arrived this week, so I combined the words and flourish with some vintage stamps that I had  (from Inkadinkado and Stamp It) and came up with this card.  There is the ripping and distressing that I love to do.  This was also my first go at relief stamping...so the swirl on the right is stamped with watermark ink and clear embossed before inking up the card with Barn Door, Wild Honey, Scattered Straw and Vintage DI.  The white pearl sprays really look good with the white swirl in the background and with the lace it seems to have a nice sense of balance I think....The lace, flowers, and pearls are from my stash.  The only card stock that I used where a deep red, chocolate brown and white card...
Enjoy!

I have this stamp too and I love the way you have coloured her. I tend to stick to lilac and blue when I use her. This whole card is beautiful and well balanced. Very nice!
I saw this on Inspire me Fradays. Kate x
