Meet Agatha Panthus!!!


Hi there,

Well the old migraine monster seems to be in retreat now and I am feeling more like my old self thank goodness. I don't seem to have acheived very much tonight but my room is like a pit and I couldn't put a postage stamp down on the desk let alone a card so I need to have a tidy......as usual.
I am however just a teensy weensy bit chuffed with myself as I have had a go with my digital camera and the two pics above are the result. I don't think they are too bad despite breaking all of the rules regarding digital photography......I only took them about half an hour ago and the light in my room isn't great at the best of times....just an overhead strip light but I stood the cards in front of a folded sheet of cream card which is backlit by my desk lamp.
I'm sure I will get better with practice............she says..........lol!!!
Anyway, the cards are made with my new set of Agapanthus stamps by Stampendous.
I have wanted these for ages, finally got my hands on them yesterday when they arrived at the shop and just couldn't wait to play with them.
The first card is done on acetate with a lengthways wrap of paper by All Around The block. The flower stems are peeloff lines and the heads have been stamped onto acetate and cut out and are attached to the front with foam pads.
The second card is stamped onto the same paper in black Stazon with the open flowers coloured in pencil and smoothed out with Low Odour Thinners. I then stamped the smaller stamp over the top in Versamark and embossed with white powder. The coloured flowers were then glittered with stickles.
The inspiration for this came from HERE.
Right......I am off to put the kettle on and then pack my bag ready for work in the morning.
Night all.
