Been digging out old stamps

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, hugs. What a lovely sunny morning it is here in the Midlands, unlike the dark grey of yesterday :o)

On the spur of the moment, I had a "digging out" session of old rubber stamps, from more than 7 years ago. I know it's that long because I have been working at Morrison's for 7 1/4 years and they predate that!
Anyway, this is the first card made using one of those stamps, and I am happy to say that it doesn't look old fashioned :o) It is also a long time since I made DL size cards and this stamp lends itself well to this style methinks.


Base card is white linen from Papermill Direct, folded and cut to DL size. 
I used the offcut to stamp on with this fabulous Stampendous image and then coloured with Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils and Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pens, also from the same era as the stamp and still going strong after years of neglect. 
Sentiment is another old Stampendous offering :o)

Another lovely card - some of our old stamps are the best!!! Yes yesterday was a bit miserable - my washing was in and out all day - although it did eventually dry - looking forward to seeing what other old stamps you find at the back of the cupboard have a lovely Sunday - Lesley x

You're right... it really is a perfect image for the DL shape card - lovely to see a different shape too! Superb colouring too Jackie - and that swirly type sentiment looks just right on it too - altogether it's FAB!

Great, and modern day card! What fun it can be cleaning and organizing and finding long treasures or neglected treasures. I love the "fun" in this great holiday card. Yup, sun after three days of clouds and rain.
