precious memories

I was delighted to be asked by Robin to be guest designer this week at the Creative Belli Challenge Blog.

The Belli challenge encourages us to use our OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments, of which I have one or two!

The theme this week is rub-ons so I had a rummage through my rub-on box and came up with some very old Fancy Pants rub-ons. I then went searching for the paper I had that matched, of which I found two sheets, but I guess that is all that is needed.

There are five rub-ons on my card. Can you spot where?

I used the sketch over at Lili of the Valley this week.

Papers: Fancy Pants ~ Aged Florals. I just love the gorgeous colours of these.

My first rub-on is the big orange one in the centre behind the image.

I rubbed it onto a piece of plain white card, then distressed and inked the edges. The rub-on is from the Fancy Pants ~ Chalked collection and just the perfect colour for this.

Image: Lili of the Valley ~ Little Girl's Swing Time, coloured with copics. I swapped some string for the ropes in the stamp.

The remaining four run-ons are from the Fancy Pants ~ Aged Florals collection. I rubbed two distressed looking flower rub-ons onto the two buttons holding up the swing.

The pink roses in the top left panel which you can just see in the photo above (top left) is another rub-on.

Finally, the fifth rub-on is the sentiment.

I used a Tim Holtz metal corner, rubbing in some red paint and wiping off the excess.

Thank you for looking.
