Create Yourself

I found a big foam flower stamp that I received as a freebie on the front of a magazine I think(could have been on the front of a kids comic lol..I don't remember), anyway, its never been used, been trampled on, stuck in boxes and moved from pillar to post as they say (not like I have pillars in my house but you get the drift)

So...last night I had a play with this tattered, distressed stamp....and came up with this.

please click on image to enlarge. Looks better bigger lol...honest rofl

ps....the ribbon at the bottom is a deep red and turquoise but the camera didnt capture that.

Beautiful effect with the stamp. The deep red and turquoise is a stunning colour combination!

This is lovely, great colour scheme, and I love the bright butterfly in contrast to the more muted background.

lovely textured effect in the background, the deep red and turquoise adds that elegant feel to the card. Great use of freebie stamps!

Beautiful Jo - Love the colours used - would you believe I have the same stamp and more like them and have just dumped the lot as I have never used them either (on a tidy up at the minute)
