Decided I am going to have a clear out in the New Year. I have so much stuff that I am simply never going to use. I have enough paper to fill a craft shop and so many stamps which were bought with no purpose other than I liked them and they've never seen ink.
I know this is 'Crafter's Curse' 'cos every crafter I know does it but I really am intending to sort it out. I don't hold on to old clothes that I no longer wear so why am I storing all this lot???
So, now that I have said that - here's an old (VERY OLD) stamp.
Seen ink once before.
Wood backed, a big stamp and don't know why I bought it and don't want to keep it!
But for old times sake I have used it - as I saw a card made with it using alco inks and I remembered I had it.... (not for long)
Ivory linen textured card.
Stamped and embossed with gold. Watercoloured then cut out the individual tiles.
Ran an embossing pen round the edges of the panel then gold embossed.
Mounted the tiles using foam pads for dimension and then mounted the panel.
Stamp is called Paris Moments by Hampton Arts and is now consigned to the 'Dispose Of' pile which is growing rather alarmingly....
No sentiment on this one - just one for the 'Just In Case' box where I go to when I need a card in a hurry!

Thanks for looking! Will be back again over the weekend - New Years Eve is not a celebration for me just a time for remembering Mum on her birthday - and consoling myself making inky and messy in the craft room!
If this is your last visit to me before 2017 then I wish you a very happy New Year! x
