I've used some new stamps that I bought on Saturday at the Newbury Artstamps show. I've used sailboat blue dabber on a die cut shape (Tim's ornate alteration die) and the Owls are by Simply Stamps - aren't they cute?! The top colour is vintage photo - and yes, I know I should have done the colours the other way round to be more realistic, but when I tried that (on the other side of this!) it looks a real mess, so back to version one!! Quite by chance I bought a distress embossing ink pad on Saturday - it has worked beautifully!
I've covered a square tag with a piece of paper from Tim's vintage shabby paper stack, to which I've added some broken china round the edges, and the japanese maple leaves (also new) are by Penny Black, stamped in brushed corduroy. The sentiment is Wendy's.
Do go check out the other entries - there were some stunners last week! Once again there are prizes on offer so if you've got the book, what are you waiting for?
