old and new

Another forgotten and recently excavated stamp here in the background - a map stamp from Inkadinkadoo, which was stamped with black memento ink onto white card.The  image was torn out, crumpled up within an inch of being a total wreck, sort of smoothed out and inked with distress inks in old paper, antique linen and tea dye - definitely looked ancient by then! The netting was originally holding lemons, and the bright yellow colour was more or less hidden by using denim alcohol ink, which was rubbed over using the felt pad on the tool - I now also have an interestingly blue smudged background piece of card as well. The new bit is the sail away stamp from Stampin up, just stamped in black onto white card, matted onto a pale blue card. The base cream card was sponged with tea dye ink round the edges
A second card this weekend for Judith's Forgotten Friday!


  1. Fabulous card Veronica, love the crumpled background stamp. The netting is a great addition. I save mine to make textured backgrounds using Gesso, have you tried that?

    I hope you're going to use your alcohol inked piece of card for something else!

    Thanks for joining in again, Judith xx

  2. Another lovely card . Like ow you've used the netting. Hugs x ChrisB

  3. A lovely card, I love what you did with the map. I must remember not to just throw away my nets when I have emptied them in furture, it looks so good on this card.

    Hope you show us what you use your interesting blue piece of card on.

  6. Another great card - it's a good job we all decide to have a tidy up and sort out now and again to uncover those forgotten items or even to actually unearth items you know you have but can't actually find!!
