A Blast from the Past

Happy Saturday and welcome! This week it's my turn to host at Allsorts challenge and for my optional theme I selected "A Blast from the Past" meaning I would like to see vintage, art deco, retro etc. themed creations or however else you get inspired by that title. Maybe you'd like to dust off some of your oldest stash. Lots of options I think but if the theme isn't for you then the Anything Goes option still applies and we would love to see all your new crafty makes (up to 3). We have prizes from Stampendous so hopefully you'll find some time to join us this week!

It's been a while since I used this art deco inspired stamp kit by Hero Arts. This one is from the February 2019 release and no longer available at the Hero Arts shop but it may be found on eBay or Etsy.

The stencil I used came as part of the kit and I used Old Paper Distress ink for a vintage look. A circle die cut was used on the top part to keep that area uninked for the dancers which are of course also part of the kit. They were stamped on scrap cardstock and cut out using the matching dies. Sentiment and music notes are all part of the kit. I used some stickles glitter for a little sparkle to finish it off.
