Our first challenge of 2016 begins today over at Crafty Boots and the theme is “Something old, something new” – an opportunity for you to show off your new craft supplies and to perhaps return to some old favourites. I have quite a few supplies that I consider to be new/old! These are things that have never been used but have been in my stash for quite some time. So for my DT piece today I thought I would combine some new/old supplies with some old/old ones – are you with me?
I bought Stampotique’s NYNY and 1879 Postmark several months ago but haven’t had the opportunity to use them. This evokes some very, very happy memories of my recent trip to New York!
After stamping on to card I applied distress inks – Fossilised Amber, Picked Raspberry (one of my very first distress inks!) and Wilted Violet. Then I added the stars using a stamp that I have had in my stash forever. The sentiment is from a set by Darkroom Door, I have used some of the stamps from this set before, but not this particular one.
Do buzz over to Crafty Boots and see what the rest of the DT have been up to and remember you have a whole fortnight to link up your projects.
Thanks for buzzing by.
