Follow the recipe

 Winter is back with us today after a couple of lovely mild days that
had us believing spring was about to arrive.
Today is bleak with heavy showers but we do badly need the rain here in
this end of the state.

So much for the weather report.

Today I am following the recipe on 52CCCT
of 1 ribbon 2 papers and 3 pearls or rhinestones.
I have pulled out another old PSX stamp which I felt went with the paper,
but now I am thinking that I should not have stamped with black.
To start I coloured in the lamp but didn't like that and as the stamp is so detailed
felt it was better left uncoloured.
I sponged around the outside with Dessert Sand and right on the edge
with Shabby Shutters 2 beautiful colours.
The ribbon has bells and holly in gold very tiny.
The mount had to be hand cut and I can see I fudged that too.  GRRRRR
 I am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  2. I like how you used the ribbon to bridge the two patterned papers. I agree that the stamp looks perfectly fine left uncolored. I really like the interesting shape of the focal panel!
