Paris in Black and White



I've not been able to get in my craft room over the last week as the decorator decided it was the best place for him to set up his pasting table and all the rest of his gear . Hopefully he will be finished in a couple of days and I can get everything put away.  I had to empty by big bookcase in the hall and it had a lot of my stamp folders etc in it, they are all piled up in my bedroom at the moment, chaos rules! While I was looking for something else I picked up an A4 folder full of ATCs,hundreds of them LOL, Looking through it I noticed two things, one that I used to be a lot more creative than I am now and two that there are a lot of lovely stamps I havn't used for years . The collage stamp on here is one of the first Stampin Up ones I had, sent to me by my sister I believe, I used old Hero stamp French writing for the background and bits and pieces from my stash. I'd like to enter this into

  1. The Hero stamp which is a favourite of mine as well makes the prefect backdrop to the lovely focal image Joan. Hope you chaos is soon over, nice to have decorating done but can cause frustrations along the way.

  8. I know exactly what you mean about being more creative with your past cretions, and the number of unused stamps over the years. You have created a stunning card under difficult circumstances. Loving the background it greatly supports your main feature. Thanks for joining us at Cardz 4 Galz. Caz DT

  9. Well done, pulling out something you haven't used in a while. I find that my creativity waxes and wanes, too. It's a great idea to go through old work to get re-inspired (and remind you of what's in your stash!). Thanks for joing us at the Stampotique Designers Challenge. :)
