My inky travels along life's rocky road

Even more bits

I found this stamped image in my bit bag. I think it's by Crafty Individuals but it's not a stamp I own. Many, many years ago I attended a get-together with some virtual friends whom I got to know through a card-making forum. We met at a pub in Hertfordshire and each brought along some stamps, inks and card. We spent the afternoon chatting and stamping, goodness knows what other visitors to the pub thought but we all had a great time. I think this is one of the images I came home with. I dug out my chalks (remember those?) and coloured in the BG and the centres of the daisies. I found some matching Crafty Individuals paper from the Travels in Italy book and cut around those daisies so that I could insert the stamped piece into it. All the flower centres were given a blob of glossy accents and I coloured the stamped daisies with a white watercolour pencil. The base card is stamped with Impression Obsession's geologic stamp in Archival grape and I added a strip of Memory Box's loop border. Let's hope I'm still making an effort to use things from my bit bags in a few months time!


  1. This is beautiful, so delicate,

  2. It is ephemeral, love it and the chalk adds to it - I keep forgetting about using my chalks. That's the problem with items being in drawers :) You are doing a wonderful job using up those bits and pieces :)
