"Old Favourites" at Fashionable Stamping Challenge

Hi Everyone
and I am back with you as we have the start of another challenge fortnight over at 
our theme for the next 2 weeks is "old Favourites" we would like you to use an old forgotten but favourite stamp on your project.


For my project I have made a card and my "Old and forgotten favourite" stamp is "Jane" by Indigoblu, I have only used half of it. I stamped her onto lightly gesso covered dictionary paper and then cut her in half. I have added a little colour to her using Spectrum Noir pencils.
She has been glued to a background of distress inks that I applied first to Tim Holtz flourish  misted lightly with water then used the stencil to stamp the design.
I have also stamped Carabelle - "French Lily Background"
The sentiment, applied with glue gel for a 3D effect is from Tim Holtz "Small Talk" stickers.
As usual we would all love it if you popped along HERE and joined in with us. My team mates have all been searching through their stamps to find their favourite forgotten one and have made some fabulous things to inspire you.
We accept any style or type of project but you must include a stamped image as your main focal point of that project.
One randomly chosen enrty will win $20 to spend in the online store of our generous sponsor
Thanks for stopping by
Love
Amanda X
