Shabby chic Postage Due card

I recently treated myself to this gorgeous stamp set, Postage Due, because I’ve been hanging my nose over it since the new catty came out in October. This is the first card I’ve made with it and I love the shabby chic look of it.

I know some people think demonstrators have everything out of the catalogue but it’s not true, honest, and I don’t have all of the markers, so I improvised on this one. I inked up the stamp in Sahara Sand (new favourite colour) and then carefully wiped off the ink, using a cotton bud, from the bike, number and flower. Then I reinked those using my In Color markers. A “huff” all over it and it was good to stamp!
