I must admit to wondering what I would do with this image when I received it with my February swap parcel from Pat.  It had a big blank white area in the centre and I toyed with the idea of colouring it but in the end decided to cut round the edge of the stamp leaving a little margin and then mounting some crepe paper from my snippets box behind it.  Crepe paper is fabulous for texture but never easy to stick down ....success, I sandwiched it  LOL.  I decided to emboss the black card I was mounting it onto and then added 4 little white brads.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

  5. Hi liz, great card, never thought of using crepe paper! I have that stamp, used it last year stamped a couple of times and cut it up to make a DIY birthday cake with the screws as 'candles' - was great fun! Must dig it out again :-)
