Friendships Journey was one of the very first sets I purchased even before I was a demonstrator. I loved the look of this lady. As with many of my older sets they just don't get used enough. Last night I was lying in bed listing to the rain. I stared thinking about what I was going to stamp next and this image popped into my head. Vintage is back and although I have the new set Artistic Etchings, I felt the need to use this one. Last night my first new order from the catty came. Yahoo......finally, I really should have expedited it. Anyway, I digress. Vintage brads were in the order. So, when I saw the sketch challenge over at splitcoast I couldn't resist using this image and my new brads. Although you can't see it in the picture, I did use the medallion from Artistic Etching on the Cherry Cobbler background in Soft Suede and sponged all around both base and the vanilla image piece. I also used my aqua painter and Cobbler for her dress and lips. The lace isn't SU.........but mine came last night so I can unravel it anytime. Smooch Spritz finished it off. Hope you like.
