New favourite

This is now my favourite stamp in the whole wide stamping world. It is a relatively new stamp and appears on an Elusive Images plate called Brocade Backgrounds which you can see here.

I've been experimenting with it and found it really versatile. The stamped image here, which only uses part of the stamp wasn't the one I liked the best but so far it is the only one I have turned into a card. In the picture above, the flower looks like it has some dirty splodges on it but you can see below that these are gold in the light.

The flower background was made by spritzing gold mica spray over Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany DI on a craft mat. The flower itself is stamped in Crimson Copper Brilliance and embossed with Holographic EP. The card also uses Holiday Stripes by Hero Arts and Happy Birthday by Hobby Art.
It's nice to have something to post again. I've been waiting for so long for a little playtime. I may be able to do some more tomorrow but I am having a new window put in the kitchen, which is my craft room. Common sense tells me I should use my time to mount some new stamps and sort out some of my crafty chaos but if I get the chance to get inky again I'll be in it up to my elbows.
Thanks for looking.

Return to Venice

I've finally got my trip blogged on my other blog. As a little inducement to visit you might want to feast your eyes on these.
