I've been busy getting ready for Stamp Camp! Teneale and I are having our first all-weekend event, and it's going to be heaps of fun!!!
So, just a quick one today, because I still have soooo much to do!
I was surprised to see Brocade Basics on the Retirement List. We've only had it for a year :o( At least I have used it a LOT!
I stamped the leaves and stems in Old Olive ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I stamped the Linen Background stamp (retiring) in Versamark over the entire piece. I then sponged pastels in Old Olive and Creamy Caramel over the top to soften the image.
I used one and a half a dyed Pretties flowers, some Pretties pearls and a hatpin for embellishments. There's also the Paisley background on there, stamped in Versamark on Purely Pomegranate.
Lots of background stamps are retiring, but there is only 1 new background stamp in our new catalogue, so if you love backgrounds, you'll need to buy them by March 31. The good news is that most of them are 25% off ($25.46)! Check out the list HERE (they are all on page 107 and 108)
