Fancy Pants!!!

Does everybody have days when they feel like they are going to disappear up their own wahoo? The last two days have certainly seemed like that for me and I am absolutely cream crackered.
Good excuse then to come home from work and get stuck in to some stamping and design a card for my workshop tomorrow to replace the one I was going to do but can't because all the things I was going to use have sold out. The ladies that are coming do have this set of Fancy Pants stamps and would like some ideas for using it .

I am really loving turquoise and red at the moment so I have stamped this stunning corner stamp onto a square of Basic Grey Charmed from the Blush collection....soooo yummy.
I have then taken a piece of chipboard and stamped the large flower image in a very pale chalk ink........just enough to give me the shape of the flower to cut around.
The flower was then inked with a red pigment ink and embossed with UTEE twice.
After it had cooled right down I added more red ink and sprinkled with gold detail EP and then dipped again into UTEE and heated.
While still hot I sprinkled black detail EP into the centre and out onto the petals and heated again.
The flower was glued to the card with thick tacky glue.
I don't think it needs anything else on it really but I shall keep looking at it while I am working and decide if it does.

I have done a few classes at the shop lately using the Wax Paper Resist technique and the ladies have been having trouble finding the wax paper. My friend Kerry very kindly e mailed me to say that she has found some HERE Thanks a million Kerry.

I can't believe I have only just noticed that my Blog Counter has gone through 50,000. I'd best sort out some Blog Candy........keep your eyes peeled for that. It may not be for a week or so as we are awaiting a delivery of utter gorgeousness at the shop and I'm sure there will be something fab in it for a prize.
Thank you so much to everyone who visits and especially to those who return again and again.

Well best go and get my class packs ready and then I am going to pack some more stuff into boxes to go upstairs.

Bye for now
