Old and New

Sunday Stampers #114 has a theme of Old and New. (apologies for the wonky angle of the photo!!)
I've used my brand new Papermania Nostalgia stamp and attempted to give the whole card a times past feel. There's also a mix of old and new papers with a bit of BasicGrey Recess and some Papermania V&A.
I've stamped the image with fawn Impress ink and then pulled the colour out with a wet paint brush. I can't express how lovely this stamp is, real quality. A large stamp (if your reading Julia, not like Born to Shop) with an etched image on the wooden block and giving a great stamped impression. Not at an over inflated price either. There's another stamp in the set of a little girl with an umbrella I'd like to get my hands on too.
Forced myself to not put a single flower on so that it could be a 'boy' card but did manage to find a little bone for the dog.

Now a confession. I received a stamp in a giveaway not so recently and I haven't blogged about it. So thank you very much to DRS Designs who sent me the 'Happy Moments' message stamp that I have used on the card. I can see me using that to make some gifts as well as for cards.
