Years Gone By

Over on Rebel Stampers the April ATC Swap was the theme of Years Gone By:

I don’t have many stamps that would fit this theme but do have a large selection related to gardening and landscape so working on the theory that Years Gone By could mean centuries rather than decades I opted for a statue which were all the rage in ‘posh’ gardens centuries ago! This is an old stamp set so perhaps that could come under Years Gone By too.

Materials used:

Inks  Distress Inks – Broken China, Seedless Preserves

          Versafine – Vintage Sepia,

         Brilliance – Pearlescent Chocolate

Stamps – Creative Expressions Lost Garden

                 Inkylicious Oriental Awakening

Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

It took me ages to come up with an idea for the Alpha Challenge at Craft Barn this time; nothing would spring to mind then I was rootling through a box of die cuts and came across some gate and fence die cuts I had purchased from the well known auction site! Light bulb moment – I had my word!!! The letter was ‘G’ so I had Gate.

Dictionary 04-16 G sig

It may not easily be seen in the photo but I opened the gate and used a small piece of foam to keep it open, hoping to invite you in to view the statue!
