Forgotten Friday 12

My card for Judith's Forgotten Friday Challenge this week is a twisted easel using several 'forgotten' elements.  I was looking for something amongst my stash last week when I came across a large pack of twelve by twelve papers which I bought as a special offer at least two years ago, put them away tidily at the time and would you believe the pack hadn't even been opened!!  Another thing I've been using again recently is my alcohol inks which had been sitting on the shelf unused for ages.  So - background paper from my stash; a tag cut out in mirri card embossed with a text embossing folder and then dabbed with alcohol inks. Onto this I've popped a paper rose which I made for a demonstration this time last year and has been sitting in my 'flower' box since then; a strip of card stamped using a text stamp by Hero Arts (again unused for a while) and finally some eyelash yarn left over from a scarf I knitted a couple of years ago - I knew I would find a use for the oddment some time. All these forgotten elements have been put together to make this twisted easel card, adding a swirl and sentiment.  Thanks Judith for encouraging the use of these neglected items and I know I have many more buried away in my craft room.

  3. What a lovely card Val.I like these twisted easel cards, they are a bit different.

  4. Hi Val, sorry I've not visited for a while. Things are a bit manic around here at the moment.

    Love the card. The colours are lovely and good that you've dug out those really nice papers (I have far too many in my boxes). I've made several easel cards but not a twisted one yet. Must have a go ............. when I get time, lol!
