Wednesday Stamper & Theme Thursday

Wednesday Stamper "Toys" & Theme Thursday "Playing Cards" I combined the two themes as yesterdays attempt at the WS went pear shaped. It hasn't gone all that well today either, so it was either this or not enter at all. I used a playing card coverd in gesso & ink to apply my vintage toys. The problem began when I tried to stamp my train & boat onto the card, the designs wouldn't show up so I did them onto card & glued them on. Not quite how I wanted it but you win some you lose some. I mounted it all onto a blank ATC.

This is fabby Paula. I do know what you mean though about the images not showing up. It's a fine line between putting too much gesso on and not enough. Like you said, win some lose some! Lol xx
