Hello and welcome!
Today a new theme starts at Allsorts challenge where it's Helene's turn to
host. Her theme is "Something New" and our prize is a beautiful die set by
Tattered Lace. Hope you decide
to join in with us for your chance to win!
I didn't get any new crafty goodies for Christmas, but did purchase a few new
stamps last fall and my "new" is one of the stamps from that order. It's such a pretty one and I can't believe I haven't used it yet!

This is a large stamp and pretty much fills up the card front of about 5x5
inches. I decided to do some stenciling, stamping and inking around the image
and created a little bit of a collage background.
Next I used
TCW Tiles stencil
Pumice Stone Distress Oxide
ink for some random tiles on the background. The script is an old stamp by
Stampin up - French Script
. I realize it's stamped upside down on the
right side of the card, this was a mistake but at this point in the process I
decided to just "make it work".
I thought it needed something else, so I grabbed an old Harlequin stamp from
the old SU set Looks Like Spring
and stamped a small part of it onto
two corners again using Versafine Onyx
ink but stamped off once. Finally I inked the edges using Pale Plum ink form Stampin
Up (I'm pretty sure they have long retired this ink but it's a really pretty
shade of pale purple.)
I had originally colored the white daisies in a very pale pink and decided I
wanted them to stand out a little bit more, so I stamped them again and fussy
cut, and this time I only colored the flower centers and left the rest white.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
