Saturday's workout "Antique Paper"




The theme at SaWo is to antique paper. Really liked the idea of this theme, Sandy is so clever to think of something new every week.


Anything I do at the moment seems to eventually turn into a Christmas card. I made an antique heart, using mount board and sticking a little transferred image (using Golden gel medium) behind the aperture that I cut out. I used distress inks and then varnished everything with tea dye varnish to give it the antique look.Then like I said , I could not help myself and turned it into a Christmas card.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
