Vintage Chic? Moi?

Recently I got 3 things in the post which I am really in love with:

1) A Hero Arts script stamp (which I had ordered). I am not much into stamps, but this one I LOVE!
2) A couple of gorgeous chipboard birds from Sabrina (thank you, Sabrina)
3) Some ribbons from my mum. There are not many harberdasheries in Dublin, so I asked my mum in Brazil to buy and post some for me. She phoned very apologetically saying that the choice was not big and they weren't that nice so I wasn't expecting much, but I was absolutely thrilled when I got the parcel.

I saw in a blog one of the latests Primas, with printed letters on them, and I thought, maybe I can recycle some of my "old" Primas with my new stamp? My "clever" ideas are usually are a disaster but this one worked! Hurrah!

Prima flower + script stamp + Black stazon =



Together with one of the Ikea frames which I had bought ages ago and never used and a couple of embellies and patterned paper from my Studio Calico kit I had this little framed pic done:



I've left the bird still undecorated but I feel that I should do something with it. Maybe paint it in silver or stamp it or both. What do you think?

What a nice idea. I have that stamp too (I think...it looks like a Hero Arts one) and must try it on some flowers! I actually have loads of stamps but don't use them that often on LO's.

Hi Elisa - I read this yesterday and today went and made a card using stamped primas. I am so happy with it - thank you - definitely the best card I made for a while. Or at least I think so.
