Wine Not

Love this Woodware stamp that fell in my basket last Tuesday when I went to Embsay Crafts just to get some card blanks , after a horrible drive there in fog and rain and road closures everywhere, detour here, detour there ( we knew the A59 was closed but couldn't believe they had also closed off all the side roads too!) finally snuck through on one road where part of the road had collapsed and got back onto another route, only to find that Embsay were out of stock of the card blanks I wanted !! finally found one pack in amongst some other sizes, anyhow they did have quite a lot of stuff on sale and one or two ( or 7) new stamps found their way back with me, the one above being one of them.
I knew straight away I wanted to do the acrylic block technique with it and for once it worked out just how I have envisioned it. I'd like to enter this card in these challenges

  1. Sounds like you worked really hard to get this stamp home :) Beautiful coloring and I love your background! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at ATSM!

  2. I think you deserve the new stamp after that journey and it rather a nice one, ideal for male or female.

  6. Sounds like a nightmare journey and I'm not surprised you needed to treat yourself.
    Great card, and I can see that stamp being very useful.

  7. This card is fantastic!!! You really nailed the acrylic block technique :) The stamp is well worth all the trouble you went to - after that much frustration, I think one or two or six stamps would have found their way into my basket, too!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at ATSM this week!
