Simon Says - show us your newest....

Monday was time for another Simon Says challenge - "show us your newest stamp"  On Monday I didn't have a newest stamp - (well I did, but not a very new one, haha!) but the post came on Wednesday with some goodies including the Tim Holtz harlequin background stamp (atc sized) and today I had time to play.

I have used victorian velvet distress ink for the background (spritzed with water) and the harlequin background.  The same package that brought the stamp also brought the "vintage market" alphabet die which I cut using a piece from the vintage shabby paperstack.  The other stamp, also called harlequin,  is by Judikins, so I added some music tissue tape to tie in this theme. This Judikins stamp always makes me think of Venice and carnivals - somewhere I'd love to go.....
