Material Girl

I don't know about you but when I see those words I think of a song by Madonna... Now maybe that ages me. :)


I have this lovely mini deck of papers from Cosmo Cricket called Material Girl and haven't really used them. So I decided today to pull them out and make a patchwork bacgkround. (No sewing for me although I think it would add a beautiful touch)



Love the pretty golds, yellows and reds mixed in the various papers. I tried to emulate that with the stamped image. The Northwoods stamp was inked up with Toffee and Crimson Red from Versafine. The Sentiment is Hero Arts and stamped using the Crimson Red and Vintage Sepia from Versafine.

Thanks for stopping by...
