Valentines at Craft Room

It's our first challenge of 2013 over at Craft room challenge, and it's time for Valentine's. The talented  Nikki's chosen our first theme, please make sure you check out all the DT stunning work.


For my card, I've gone back to an old style of card I used to make- sponging and collaging my own stamps. Feels like ages since I made a card like this :-) I've used a Stampin' Up set Affection Collection to create the background on the card stock layers. I sponged using Victorian Velvet and stamped some images with that ink and some with Tea Dye. My main image is from Gecko Galz.



Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Individuals, they have a cool new website and some great new stamp sets available so make sure you check them out.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

I'm entering my card over at Simon says Stamp and Show- where the theme is Embrace the Old. My card is vintage style made in my old style which it's been ages since I created like this :-)
