Does vintage and bright go together?



I recently spend some money for new LaBlanche stamps via HSE24, which are sold out now, as 
always.

 You can buy a lot DecoArt Mediums at her shop


I've stamped on white 300g cardstock with Memento ink







Simple splashes

Don't forget to spray your flowers





As i promised... vintage and bright




Happy crafting!
