Memories of Venice

It's time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and this time the theme is Water Inspired.
I have chosen Venice - lots of water there - which gave me a chance to use these Darkroom Door stamps, which are not unloved, but they are neglected.  The tag was stamped with black Versafine, and then to make my gondola stand out, I used a Versamarker pen and heat embossed with clear powder. To give a little more depth I stamped the Venezia inside the scroll, and again clear embossed, using foam pads in the centre I glued the sides to the tag. Ticket and label were stamped onto kraft card and distressed (heavily).
It would be lovely to see you join us  and all details are on the main blog here, and you will also see how the rest of the DT have been inspired.
We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 gift spend in their online store.

Have a lovely Sunday,

This was one of the first DD sets I bought, a beautiful set and beautifully stamped by you on this tag. Venice is a place I dearly wish to visit and I know that when I do, it will be as magical as your tag.
