When I am making anything for a swap I almost always have a couple of extras that I 'play' with first and in this case it was the one with the Z. If you look closely there are some subtle changes to the background stamping and my first attempt used a smaller focal point stamp. I also tried the fountain pen as a cut out piece. Neither worked well. A larger stamped image was chosen. It also took a while to come up with the metal mesh behind the stamped image - I knew it needed 'something' and the light dawned as I was dropping off to sleep late last night. I have had the mesh - unused- for years - literally years!
All the stamps used - except the pen - are by Paperartsy.
