Stampers Anonymous cream and blue swap

I am running terribly behind again. I have been packing to move out of the house here not sure yet what I am doing lol.
I fell in love with this Dylusions set of stamps. There are three in a package each uniquely different. But the style is so beautiful.
I used Dina wakley gesso and gel. Tim Holtz ideology and the ribbons are from my Grandmothers sewing stash from 1929through the sixties
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) stamps. The paste is Wendy Vecchi . I wanted to say thank you to Sandy A for hosting and stampers anonymous
