50 days to go!

Sorry, I'm rather late with this post as well - I have excuses. First, I had to drive back to Peterborough from my mums, and spookily enough I set off later than planned. Second, I feel as rough as a piece of moldy burnt toast :) I'll be right, think it's just a bit of a cold, but urgh, rough. So a quick post it will be.

You know last week when i did the throwback card? Well, I'm doing it again, and look:

Same stamp, but different! I said this was one of my favourite stamps - and by Jove I have a card made with the original. This one is from Hampton art, and was a beautiful wood mounted stamp. I think it's striking. Due to the image being so strong, very little else is needed on the card, so I've just worked on a background:


Now, I know it's glossy card, I'm almost positive it's Adirondack ink pads, which I've spritzed with water - but I'm not 100% sure. This was in the days before distress inks - I know, there were those days!! Because my memory is failing me, I'm going to set myself up a challenge, and attempt to re-create this background tomorrow so I can show you precisely how it was achieved - fingers crossed. I will show the experiments and the results, at any rate.

I hope you like the card, and will join me tomorrow for an inky play
