"Old Favourites"

"Old Favourites"
is the theme this fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

So seek out, dust off and share the love of one of your
most favourite stamps that hasn't been used for awhile...
and join the fun!!!


For this card I chose my trusty, and long forgotten, three men stamp.
And my also little used and forgotten background stamp with the french script.

The three men were stamped onto book paper and cut out.  
And the background is full of layers using lots and lots of ink, stencils and stamping (including the background stamp) before adding the men.

I have been doing an on-line course with Marjie Kemper, here,  because I think it is healthy to just refresh and gain new ideas...
plus it is a great thing to do when you have absolutely no way of actually getting to any of the workshops...
plus I looove the boldness of her colours with ink...

PLUS IT IS HEAPS OF FUN!!!


The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you enjoy my card.
