Forever young...

Here's a follow up post to co-ordinate with this weeks Just Add Ink entry, l thought l would use the same  Forever Young stamp set & Mocha Morning DSP and create a different look!

For the Embossed background l used the Palour Prints background stamp & again clear EP, for the sentiment l used the Decorative label punch & also used this to frame the Cameo, but reduced it in size by halving it and overlapping.
The lace border effect is 2 of the Tripple layer Doilies (setting #3) punched in Crumbcake to match the DSP and bottom layer of the image panel.

I must say that playing with this piece of DSP was a real struggle for me, as those that know me, know l have a severe issue with the feel of anything "Velvety"....l'm sure this is a result of being made to sit on Velvet lounges growing up in the 70's and as Jodene suggested "Flocked wallpaper"...hmmm this is also true as my  bedroom was wall to wall "Purple Demask Flocked paper" the in thing back then, complete with Limegreen cane furniture!

All products are Stampin-Up.
