New beginnings

I was having a bit of an experiment here with my new "key" mask by using it for embossing and trying to get an aged look by using various ink pads and my ink dusters. I've cut the sentiment from my Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz paper pad. The background paper is from a Kanban pad and I cut one of the keys out and mounted it on the card. All placed onto a Hunkydory postage style card.
I tried  to have a bit of a reorganising of my craft space today as it is getting hard to keep track of what I have. I don't think i am any further forward but it was at least a reminder of some stuff I hadn't seen for a while! also the need to get in the snippet box and make a card, unfortunately despite trying not snippets were used in the making of this card LOL!

Love the effects you have achieved here Lynn, the masking looks good with the postage edged card, sort of all blends perfectly.

A Tim Holtz stamp says " one of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting new discoveries." ^_^
