Loving The Fireworks!!!

Another outing for the Fireworks stamp from Penny Black. It doesn't ever seem to get put away at the moment......I love it.
This time I have used my trusty Adirondacks in Denim and Eggplant for the background and overstamped in Denim using a text stamp from Eccentric Edwardian by Elusive Images.
For a sketchy look to the text I have just touched the stamp to the card lightly and then pulled it straight off.
One again I have used the Metal Magic EP from Debbi Moore for the centre panel but this time I have sanded it after stamping the image which gives it a fab brushed aliminium look and leaves the area below the level of the image still quite shiny......mmm I see more possibilities for that little trick.
The black outline around the panel is eigth inch pieces of card......yes I know I'm need to tell!!! They have been attached using tiny dots of PVA adhesive.
.........and there you nasty shiny card to spoil the!!!

I am so excited (and nervous) about the classes tomorrow. I am going to be meeting two ladies who I only know through the blogging world. As they come from some distance away they will be staying for the whole day and doing two classes. I will be teaching the afternoon class........if I don't pass out with nerves!!!
Can't wait to meet you........Lesley and Jo and I hope you enjoy your day.

Best get off and get some beauty sleep........oops...they are coming tomorrow....I should have started that three months ago......ha ha ha!!!

Night Night
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Can't wait to meet you Sheila. That last bit of your post is sending me to bed with a fit of the giggles.

    Love the card by the way.

  2. Very pretty card, Sheila!! Love the sanded 'brushed aluminum' tip and know just the stamp I'm going to do that with!

  3. Gorgeous Sheila,
    I will have to take a closer look at that stamp and your card when I am in the shop next. Your colours are perfect. Hope you have had a good day with your two newcomers.

  4. Sheila, the workshop was fab. Your enthusiasm is so infectious and I am still buzzing. Got to wash up quick now so the table is free to try out those new inky techniques with other stamps and colourways. Many thanks, I will be back!

  5. Wow Sheila, What a great day I've had and I know Jo did too. I for one didn't want the classes to end. Definitely worth driving down and back up the M1 for.

    You and Deb were very warm and welcoming not to mention being brilliant teachers.

    Can't wait until I can make it to another one.

    Thanks for a great day!
