The card shown here features another stamp that I've had for yonks - the Penny Black brush flower called 'Blush'. I really like solid stamps anyway, so this is a great multi purpose one for me. For this card I've used felt tips to ink the flower head - blended on the stamp, and then stamped a head three times in a vague circle to get the rosette flower you see here. It's a classic technique and a classic case of old stash, so I hope the workshopeers like it - you never know, it might be such an old technique that someone will discover it as new for them - which makes the whole thing of going back to basics a really good idea. Now if I could just apply that to most of the rest of my life....

I have broad anonymous shoulders, so you can blame me, and I won't mind really. Blame me for what, you ask? For mildly suggesting that you might wanna include some old stash and under-used techniques in your weekend crafting. Well, Sandra took me at my word! And it caused her stress - she was playing with a brayer, folks. Brayers are the Marmite or the Opera of inky crafting if you ask me - you either love or loathe, no in-between. Well, Sandra actually did a great job, and just for the record, the Back to Basics workshop that prompted Friday's post will feature a brayer, so that proves I didn't chicken out!
