another one, blimey I’m doing well this week.
Just been sitting her listening to some fabulous rythym & blues, and crafting – perfect.
White card, stamped Tim Holtz Scrathes stamp (proving to be very versatile), and embossed with black EP. Then as I really can’t just do black and white on its own, I added a purple Angel Kisses, and altered a plain brad into a black one with versamark and black ep.
Stamped the Savvy Solid Paisley stamp in versamark with black EP, and mounted it on Prism Majestic Purple Dark and Soot. Added some MM purple ribbon, and then edged with Black StazOn.
Right off to have a nice sit down and watch some TV.
PS: This will be my 301st post!
this actually is a white card, with Chatterbox Blossoms paper, pink ribbon (free from Scrapbook Inspirations last month) then stamped the Solid Paisley Background by Savvy Stamps onto white fun foam with Black StazOn. Then mounted the panel on random pink Bazzil from my stash box, and edged with the StazOn.
I thought that this week’s would be difficult, but enjoyed this, and have another piece of black & white paper left on my desk from the Scrapping Angel Retreat great un-pack.
darling Daughter’s play session after I’d gone off to work today.
She’d been playing around with some of the Tag-it tags that were on the desk and PeachPastel fluid chalk in, so I just added the French Letter and then applied the Peeled Paint Distress Ink to my heat mat, spritzed on water, and smooshed the tag through it.
Stamped the holly leave stamp (Rubberdubberdo) in Memories Art Print Brown, tore a strip of the Sweetwater orange spotted paper left on the desk from yesterday, and dulled it down a wee bit with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Added a circle (I think it might be Technique Tuesday) that fell out of the Scrapping Angel Retreat unpacking yesterday. Stamped the angel (also Rubberdubberdo) in SG-me! Galactic Gold embossing powder, and coloured her in with various H20’s.
Added gold wired ribbon at the top.
I just love the way that the peachy colour and the green have gone together to give a worn antique look to it. Not bad for about 2 minutes work really, if I say so myself.
at the Kingdom of Blah. There was shed loads yesterday, and boy did the day go fast, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will be the same today.
I have to also remember to take a couple of shop purchase orders with me to send off, as we are running low on Dew Drops and a few other bits and pieces. Also I need to pay for my Lippy Chick Book order (keep forgetting my cheque book).
I’m aiming for a wee bit more crafting this evening too.
crafting with the girls on Saturday, and then housework and general wifeliness on Sunday.
When I say crafting, what I really mean is that they crafted, I ate cake and chatted, cut out some stamps, and did I 8×8 background for no specific reason.
Managed to whip up a really quick 8×8 layout for this photo I found of me lurking on my desk – I have no idea how it got there, but thought I would seize the day and do something with it.
Floral pattern paper is Chatterbox and orange is Sweetwater, absolutely no idea what the green check one is, another thing found lurking – I have a vague feeling that the photo and papers may have found their way there when I unpacked from Scrapping Angels (tells you a lot about how often I clear up my desk hey)!
Stamps are usual HA Sunny and MM foam ones. Corner stamp is some random thing I’ve had from ages, and can’t remember where I got it. Ink is the usual Memories Art Print Brown and Colourbox Peach Patel and Versacolour Smoke Blue. Angel kisses in blue and white and random blue brad.
I think I was about three in the photo so that around 1964, and I was clearly going for the Red Riding Hood but with style look.
quite impressed with myself again this week, I’ve got my entry done in good time.
Also, I got my tag made with the paper Kristy did on the artwork update too – which made me sooo totally happy, as it had been a wee ambition of mine to be featured – thank you girls for deciding to use it.
This is another 8 x 8 entry for my WS Journal, and is entitled “Risky Business” – oh yes, I know all about that being a banker.
Stamp credits: Paper Artsy Letters Plate 5 for image of man and numbers in the background. Tim Holtz Scratches and Sunny Uppercase Alphabets (again, I know). Also used Tim Holtz Harlequin background.
Inks: StazOn Jet Black, Antique Linen Distress, Blush Rose and Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk Ink.
Other: SG-me! clear and galactic gold embossing powders, 8 x 8 Bazill cardstock from Spring Pastel pack and sheet 6 x 6 MM Ledger Paper pad. Random black ribbon from Scrap Goods List last year.
PS: I think I might have completely lost it, joined the Team Tennant forum today – what can I say, I was bored!
hope you have a fantastic day.
