I was just thinking how quickly this week has gone, but then remembered we had a bank Holiday on Monday. This week on my rummage through my cupboard I found a stamp set that I bought in the US in 2009, and yes you've guessed it, I have not even opened the packaging. Defiantly a very neglected set, so perfect to use today for the Forgotten Friday challenge over on Judith's blog. After sorting out my promarkers to do the colouring I discovered that my black Momento ink pad is in need of replacing and not stamping very well, I've reinked it several times so decided to get a new one. That left me with a problem as the other ink pads I have are not so good to use with the promarkers, so I put them all away and rethought how I would make the card. I stamped the hummingbird and some flowers with versafine black ink, and also the sentiments, one from a set by Flower Soft and the other from a set from Kanban. Next I added some colour to the background using cut and dry foam and Adirondack ink pads. Then I coloured some flowers that I had stamped out separately, again with cut and dry foam and ink pads. The hummingbird I coloured with Whisper pens, which had no effect on the ink I used. I mounted it onto some gold mirri card, and two shades of green card, before mounting it all onto a white 6 x 6 card base. Last of all I added the flowers that I cut out, and added some gold card candi to the centres.
I'm off the the Stamp and scrapbook show at Alexandra Palace tomorrow, so I am just about to review my shopping list, there's lot on it and of course I need it all :-)
Thank you for taking the time to look.
