Design Divas Oldie but Goodie Blog Hop
If you are on the Design Diva's Oldie but Goodie Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from Tenia Nelson's Blog. If you happened on my blog and would like to do the hop, it starts at Sue Morris' Blog and from there you just follow the links!
The Design D.I.V.A.S are a group of talented papercrafters who formed a group first on SCS, and now on Facebook to share our common interests in all things paper! The meaning behind the group's name of DIVA is: Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or Annointed) sistahs! Don't you just love that? I was honored to be invited to join! We were challenged this week to use some of our old stamps and supplies that have not seen any love in at least 6 months. I pulled out this Impression Obsession Clear stamp set I won about a year ago from Stampers Dream, and have not had the chance to ink it up even once! I guess you could say it is my NEW but old stamp! So this gave me the reason to do so, and I had a blast coloring it. I stamped it on Ex-Press It cs, colored it with Copics and matted it with BasicGrey Green at Heart, which also is old now! I used a base of Gina K Pure Luxury and used designer paper from BG Sultry as well. I used an EK Success punch and May Arts twine. You can't see it in the photo but the flowers are highlighted with Spica Pens for a little sparkle. The sketch I used is from Card Positioning Systems. I had a blast using my "new" old stamps and I hope you've enjoyed this hop!
