Wish me luck

Over on the Crafty Individuals blog, they are having an anything goes challenge. As long as you include one of their products. I have been coaxed over by the very talented Lynne Moncrieff and am joining in for the first time.

I began by covering my journal page in overlapped stamping of the background stamp CI-237 using Coffee Archival. Next, I tore round some CI images that I find so useful and glued them onto my page.
Next, I stamped over the images with a large heart stamp using Black Archival.
I covered all the remaining background with fresco paint in Taupe and stamped some script with coffee archival.
I stamped a couple of sentiments and then wrote the lyrics to Gracie Fields, "Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye" around some of the hearts.
I really enjoyed playing with these beautiful images and it has given me ideas to experiment further.

I am entering this into the CI challenge.
