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
