Each Friday I am going to try and share a post using an old favorite along with something new. I'm sure if you have been stamping for a long time like me, you have lots of old favorites that maybe don't get used as often as you would like. For me, I think it's because I tend to grab the latest and greatest while my old favorites are stashed away. This weekly post will remind me to use these oldie, but goodies. This weeks Flashback Friday project uses this adorable puppy image from the retired set For Father, which appeared in the 2008 Occasions Catalog. Can you spot the new items used with it?
Along with my old favorite stamp set I used a new favorite...Timeless Textures. This stamp set can really add nice subtle detail to any project. The die cut flower is one of the dies included with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies. I used two prints from the Love Blossoms DSP Stack as well...they are such cute prints!
After water coloring the sweet pup and allowing it to dry, I went over the top of the image with the wood grain looking stamp from Timeless Textures inked lightly in Crumb Cake. I also did the same to the strip of Love Blossoms DSP. Here's a closer look...
Notice the touch of sparkle on the little die cut flower? I used the clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to do that. It's an easy way to add a touch of glitter to your stamped or die cuts images with no mess. I love it!
Have a GREAT weekend!
