CYS- Something old

CYS- Challenge Your Stash at Splitcoaststampers asked us to use something old today on our cards.  Our hostess in Jennifrann.

 For my card, I stamped using an image from Concord and 9th. I went old school on the technique, which is adding Distress ink on the background, and then adding more color through a stencil.  I did not mask, just avoided adding color to the center.  I used Copic markers for coloring, and added E50 to the center of the circle to 'age' it and not leave it stark white. The flower on the Lt was stamped again and raised up on dimensionals. I added sequins and a bird die, also colored using Copics.
  This brings me back to when I was a child.  My Mother was very creative and would make wreaths for the door- she would always include a bird, even at Christmastime!!!

HERE is the link to the CYS gallery for October over at Splitcoaststampers.  Last years cards will also show up! 
We are using up our unused supplies!!!
