An Oldie But A Goodie

Hey there and welcome. Recently, I’ve been only using digis and totally neglected my precious rubber & clear stamps. So, I decided to grab some of my oldest rubber stamps and heat emboss the images. For coloring, I used watercolor pencils, which also have been neglected for a long time. The stamp I used here has been in my stash for about 7 years, and I still love its cuteness :) The patterned paper and ribbon were all scraps that I found in my drawer. It took me like ages to tie the bow (I don’t have a bow maker), but I am pretty happy with the result. Then I stenciled the card base and while that was drying, I tore some vellum and colored it with alcohol marker. To assemble the card, I followed a sketch provided by Crafty Friends Challenge. As a final touch, I added some Stickles, and my card was done.

I hope you like how it turned out and thanks for stopping by.
