This is the theme for the Tanda Teaser challenge this week and it immediately made me think of some quirky images on Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion CD. I printed out some background papers and the image, layered them up with some toning card and used a Fiskars border punch to make the scallops. A cuttlebug tag for the message and some decorative corners just finished it off.

I made this card using up the bits left over from yesterday's monochrome one - I am trying to avoid adding any more scraps to my growing mountain of small pieces of paper and card. The stamps are from a set which were given away free with one of the card magazines last month.

My copy of Craft Stamper arrived yesterday and I've just had a go at one of the techniques - masking and brayering to make a background. I'm not entirely satisfied with the result but I'm sure I will improve if I keep trying!! I'm off now for a welcome cup of coffee and another look through the magazine to see what else 'grabs me'.
