Lovely Lilac Lanterns

Just had to try my hand at Jan Tinklenberg's Lantern technique which is nothing more than using a crimper on your stamped image but what a "pow" it packs! I tried both a vertical and horizontal orientation and for this stamp I think I like the vertical better. I wonder how the crimper would work on a background stamp??? I had the Fiskar's crimper for I bet 20 years. I used to use it to make little cardboard tree ornaments and I even crimped fabric for doll clothing with it. Now it's popular again for cards and papercrafting. See....don't throw out all the old stuff....because it will get popular the minute you do! Have a great evening!
