I have something a little different from my usual style today, although I am back to that red and gold combo.
The card base is kraft, and I sponged around the edges with Tim Holtz 'Walnut Stain'. The designer paper is Penny Black 'Music Gold Foil', which I bought at Blade Rubber Stamps in London, during one of my trips about 3 years ago. As with so many papers I buy, I do so because I love them, then can't bear to use them, squirrelling them away sometimes for many years. Yes, I KNOW I am in good company - so many of you out there in blogland do the same thing, (plus stroke and even sniff our papers). Some people may say we are sad little bunnies, but we know we are oh so happy in our little worlds, aren't we!
I love the image, and bought it at a big craft show at Esher, near London, on another trip. It was on an A4 sheet of toppers at a stand where one can fill a box of paper, card, or toppers for a bargain price. A lot of you living in the UK probably know the stand I mean, as they apparently go to most of the shows.
The alphabet stickers have been in my stash for 'donkey's years', and I forgot I had them until I decided to organise a big box of bits and bobs in the back of a cupboard. The photo does not show the tiles very clearly, but each one has tiny music on them. I cut each tile from kraft and sponged the edges as per the card base.
This is the first time I have used red with kraft, but I think I will be repeating this combination, as I really like it. Methinks some Christmas cards????
