Zoe - 21st Challenge "Use old stash"

Good morning Lovelies! How's everyone's Christmas preparations going? Mine is all sorted, we are going out to Canada for Christmas to spend it with my gorgeous daughter and her Boyfriend, we've not seen her for 2 years, as she is back at Uni and not earning she's been unable to come home, and me with my job doesn't make it easy to just go away either, so Yippee! I just can't wait, boy I'm ready for it too, it's been a traumatic couple of months for us.

So onto our challenge at Rhedd and Rosie's which is being sponsored by our lovely Moira. She's offering this fab prize to winner

 

Its an anything goes challenge so you can make anything as long as you follow our theme which this fortnight is "Use Old Stash" so here's what I made, I hope you like it?

It's a 6x6 kraftcard base, my background I created on some Tim Hotlz Craft resist card stock which I've had for years, I used the reverse side. I stamped this fab background stamp that's part of a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 set with picket fence Distress paint, I then inked over with Distress inks in various colours and a stencil used to just create some more texture, I then used Gold Texture Paste through this gorgeous Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stencil, added some very old gold gems again I've had lying around fro years. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Chit Chat Sticker, I love these little things.

I hope you feel inspired to join in? Thank you for visiting, have a great day xxx
