Art for ever

Show us ' Something New',  is the next Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
This could be a new stamp or a new technique.  Please pop over and see what my D.T. sisters have been making and read about the super prize offered by our sponsor Flonzcraft.

When we were in Yorkshire, back in March and before we were snowed in, I was able to visit Art From The Heart.  Imaging my surprise and delight to meet  the amazing Dina Wakley. She spotted these two stamps in my shopping basket and introduced herself.
I must take a trip to the naughty step as these have not been inked until I made these two tags., they  fit the theme of 'Something New'.
As they are large tags 4 x 8 inches, they have been converted into a pair of hangings.
I used Timber Brown to stamp them up, the background is stamped script before shading with Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo.

The die cut flowers and trimmings were all from my stash.

Dina  kindly signed the packaging of the stamps, so I have a lasting memory of meeting her.

Thank you all for stopping by to take a look. I always appreciate you calling.
