Something Old, Something New

It's time again for another Craft-Room Challenge, the theme is 'Something Old, Something New' and it has been chosen by Annie.

This is what she has to say about the challenge.
Now about this fortnights challenge........we all have some old craft items in our stash and of course we have some new ones too............ so I would like you to make something which incorporates them both............not too hard............but you are required to list what you have used within your blog post.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Crafty Individuals


I've made a card for my DT sample and my new is an Impression Obsession dragonfly background stamp and my old is a Dreamweaver dragonfly brass stencil.


I stamped the background with the Impression Obsession stamp and various Marvi  Blending Blox inks, I also stamped some crackle with black ink.
I used a Sizzix courtyard die for the die cut and added some black gems.
I used DecoArt crackle paste with the dragonfly stencil and coloured it when it was dry.
I added some organza ribbon that I'd gathered.

My teamies have made some lovely samples so please visit the Craft- Room to take a look.
