Friends, Romans and all that!!!

Just before I left work on Thursday the Elusive Images delivery came and the boss gave me two sets of stamps and asked me to have a play with them. I had forgotten about them until today so have had a quick play and produced the two cards above.
The first one is a Sizzix Super Scallop Tag which I have covered with layers of crumpled facial tissue using Mod Podge adhesive. I part dried it with a heat gun and then rubbed Adirondack inks over it......Butterscotch, Lettuce and Rust. Left it to dry while I went and had a nap and then stamped the images in Jet Black Stazon. I rubbed some colour onto the card blank and stamped the two pillars onto some dark terracotta cardstock.
The second card looks so much better in real life. I have stamped the letter plaque onto beige funky foam and coloured it with rub on waxes in a pale copper edged with gold. The coins are also stamped onto funky foam, waxed with gold and then I added some darkish brown chalk over the top as they looked a bit bright.
Fabulous stamps as usual from Elusive Images. They just stamp so beautifully.
Wasn't feeling well enough to go out today so DD went out for me to try and get me some black card. She came back without the card but she did get me some of those little clear stamp sets at £1.49. They are absolutely gorgeous so I'm chuffed to bits.........good job really as she got me fourteen!!!
I have a class tomorrow morning which I must go and get ready for. I know one of the ladies has a look at my blog before she comes and she usually knows what we will be doing in the class by what I have posted...........P.......this week I am keeping you guessing but you will be glad to know that I have it all planned.......ha ha ha!!! See you later.
Right I am off for a bath before I do anything else.
Bye for now
Forgot to say........sorry about the scans being so terrible. I am using Windows Picture Gallery at the moment as my Print Shop Photo Pro was incompatable with Windows Vista. As soon as I get a new programme things should improve hopefully.
