Old favourite for FSC

Hello, it's time to  tell you about the new Challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this fortnight Esther chose the theme 'Old and Forgotten Favourite'  I think we all have 'favourites of the moment' and then move onto to a 'new' favorite - how fickle are we!
One of my constant favourites is the Tim Holtz Papillion Script, which I have used for the background, this was clear embossed with white EP and then inked with Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo DIs. The torn layer is a Kaisercraft stamp, a favourite of the moment, that hasn't been inked in ages. I coloured the bottle and then added Glossy Accents, avoiding the label.  My sentiment, a Tim Holtz stamp, which was a definite favourite, hadn't been inked in a while for some reason, but is back to being a current favourite now, this was stamped on vellum. The butterfly was cut from a mop up tag, and coated with Rock Candy Crackle paint.


It would be lovely if you could join us for this challenge, but remember we must see real stamping on your project which must follow the theme.  We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor, who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
The rest of the DT are showing their favourites, so pleas pop over to the main blog for all the details.
I am entering this at:

Have a great day whatever you're doing.
