Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Embrace the old


Good Monday morning!! Today I have a dt card to share with you for our latest challenge at Simon Says Stamps and Show - Embrace the old.  With this theme I was inspired to check out some of my older dies hiding at the back of my collection, it seems like I always just want to play with the new ones :) However, I couldn't help myself...I did combine the old with a couple of new ones :) So here is my card:


Even the handmade background paper is an "old" reject from our last summer girls scrap get together. I had made some papers for my girlfriends and I let them each choose 3 sheets from the pile...this one was not chosen. I knew I had to use this paper for this challenge :)


A close-up of the butterfly using Ranger Distress Crackle paint and then applying Inka Gold silver into the dried cracks...so pretty in real life:)

I so hope you take a peek at your older supplies...it really does feel good to use them...lessens my guilt about the amount of supplies I am accumulating :)  AND when you do...please pop on over to Simon Says Stamp and Show and link up your project for us to see :) You will have a chance to win a $50 dollar store voucher at Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!


Have a great day! Hugs, TRace

Hi Tracey, I love your combination of old & new. I think I might be tempted to join in this challenge this week. Most of my stamps are the old ones ;)

I seem to swing between trying to use new stuff that i've never used and had for ages and old stuff that i haven't used for ages :)

Hi Trace, beautiful project, love the colours and the background is perfect. Great piece of recycling too. Love the crackle on the butterfly, very eye catching. Tracy x x

Trace...your card is so pretty. The mottled colors of your background really look neat. Then, the doily featuring your crackled butterfly make a wonderful focal point. <3 Candy
