A Forgotten Old Favorite

Greetings dear friends.  So lovely of you to stop by today.  Today I am sharing with you a card I made for the new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme this time around is to create a project using one of your favorite stamp images that you have not used, or have forgotten for some time.  I am always excited to see what my design team sisters share and know you will be delighted too, so please take a peek over at FSC and then dig through your own stamps and share a project with us.  Remember, we are a stamping challenge, so stamping must be your focal point.  Flonzcraft, our generous sponsor is providing a $20 gift voucher to one randomly drawn participant.
For my own card, I began with a hot press water color panel, to which I applied Dylusions Ink Sprays in various colors and then pounced a water color brush dipped in water to blend the colors slightly. I splattered several shades of Dr. PH Martins India Ink on the panel next.  Dina Wakely and Unity Stamps were dipped in acrylic paints and added to the panel. The focal image, by Art Declassified, sadly now defunct, was one of my "go to" images for years.  It is stamped in Midnight Blue Archival Ink.  The sentiment by Dylusions was stamped with Archival Ink, as well, trimmed and mounted to the panel. Some photo corners and a bit of baker's twine complete my card. 
Thanks again for dropping by.  Looking forward to seeing your project! Hugs, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne. This is totally gorgeous. I love the colours, and the stamping with inks gives such luscious depth.
A beautiful backdrop and contrast to the main image. Love it!
