ODBD269 Something New, Something Old

Welcome to the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge.  The challenges are now a month long and this year's first challenge is Something New, Something Old.  I do hope you have some new crafty goodies over Christmas to go with your current supply.  It doesn't have to be "new" new - new to you works too!

Of course, I had to use this month's new release Wishing Well for my focal point.  I stamped and watercolored the image and then matted it using the the Rectangle Dies and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I then created another layer with some favorite oldies:  the pierced rectangle from Flourished Star Pattern and a sheet from Rustic Beauty paper collection. I also added a double stacked Wishing Word die cut and a partial sentiment from the same stamp set.  The little ribbon banner was hand cut and popped up (tip:  I find it easier to cut a wave by hand than trying to cut a perfect little rectangle with the paper trimmer for tiny sentiments.)



And please check out my other CT sisters Chris and Robin for more wonderful inspiration!
