Old and sticky....

I do like challenges which ask you to delve into all your old stuff and show it some love rather than leaving it to fester in a dark forgotton corner, but as I have, like all of us I'm sure, far too much stuff, when it's a open "something old" I often find it hard to make a decision what to use.  This was the case with this weeks' challenge at Just Add Ink, so I had a delve and found my mojo lost in the enormity of my old stash pile.... 

However, today, the new challenge at CAS-ual Friday's is out and as they want us to use stickers on our card, this helped me narrow my search somewhat!  I have tonnes of stickers, but haven't used any in an age, so a perfect combo of both challenges.

I used three old peel off stickers, the flower was a black and I stuck that to white card and coloured with polychromos pencils - the circle border and the sentiment were also peel offs but one was gold, the other was silver, but I coloured them both with a black copic to match the flower.  I used some yellow and red patterned DP to match the colour of the flower.

Peels off have fallen out of fashion somewhat, but I do think they are still a great product when used selectively.

  1. This is gorgeous,it just goes to show even old stuff is still

  2. Fab card Tara, love delving into old stash and seeing how I can use stamps in a CAS way!
    I have a massive box of peel off from when I started crafting...they can remain out of sight :)

  4. Such an interesting composition! Kinda retro, kinda modern...I like it!

  5. I like how you described finding something in your stash in a dark forgotten corner and giving it some love. Thanks for joining in our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

  6. You did a great job using stickers on your card. Even though their old, you've still made the card look very current. Glad you could join us at JAI this week.

  7. Brilliant use of stickers Tara...doesn't matter if we have old stuff in our crafty cupboards we will use it all at some stage!..Well thats my theory.


  8. Sooo fun! I love that you colored inside those stickers - it looks so pretty!! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!!

  9. Great card - I love all the overlapping shapes. Great layout.
