With silver bells
And cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.
The flower border stamp is one I won some months ago on the Fiskarettes Facebook page. It's one of those long border stamps that is designed to attach to a continuous stamp roller. I did buy one of those a few years ago but could never get it to work nicely, so I threw away the roller. I kept the stamps I'd bought with it, but none of my acrylic blocks was big enough to take them, so they've been hanging about unused, and the ones I won have remained completely NBUS.
However yesterday it dawned on me that now I have a Misti I no longer need to worry about the size of my stamps, anything that would fit on a card will fit in the Misti. So these stamps will all be losing their virginity now! Here's the first one to pop its cherry, stamped over a masked-and-sponged band to represent ground and sky. The sentiment is from Dovecraft Curiosity Corner.
It's the very last (bonus) day of Darnell's NBUS challenge today so I'm popping in there with this to share it with all the other crafty schtuff that hasn't been getting the love it deserves.
And I am also sharing it at AAA cards where the current sketch challenge inspired this card.
