Then I thought of the challenge at Use Your Stuff, which is a sketch this week. perfect for bringing together a selection of Very Old Stuff.
And with the butterfly background, how about some butterflies, stamped on pale blue paper and heat -embossed in gold? Not only perfect for the sketch, but also for a second visit to Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge, Butterflies and Embossing. I've already visited once with dry embossing, so now I can go back there with some heat embossing.
Hmmm..... it looks as if my line of characters stamp has got a bit distorted. I wonder if soaking it in hot water or heating it gently with my heat gun would allow me to straighten it?
