Deco 2

Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving lovely messages and a lovely surprise to find many of you also love art deco. I was so chuffed with so many comments. I have a few Mackintosh rose stamps but as they are wood-backed they are currently packed away until our building renovation is complete. (will update on that in about a year) lol . I cannot justify the round trip to Glasgow to see the exhibition but maybe one day. Now I really must spend a couple of days sorting out my stash before I trip over it and my computer which is also in dire need of some care but I will try to keep an eye on blogs so no mischief.

Before clearing my wee desk space I continued to play along the same theme but making a simpler card. I find it difficult to leave so much blank card and have been thinking what else should go on here but then maybe not - delightful indecision.  

Image – Decoupage possibly from Nancy Watt.
Paper and card - card blank is an A5 made with Pearlescent card.
the silver card from my messy stash,
  the backing papers are from annamarie designs 6x6.
Dies used – Spellbinder Square and Square swatches
and the Die-monde Charles Rose.

  13. Hi Flora, just adore that rose die, your choice of colours is gorgeous. Such a lovely card. We have a direct bus to Glasgow and with the good old bus pass it costs nothing just the small amount for the train from Glasgow to SECC or if it is raining we will hop into a taxi. I am taking Alisha, who is nine, (a friends daughter) with me as I have recently introduced her into crafting
