Sunday Stamper - Week 102 - We Are Golden + Candy!!!

...Yes indeedily Stampers, we are all Golden - cos we lurve stamping so much LOL Morning and apologies for the late start of this weeks new challenge... put it down to an excess of Chinese food and lack of sleep ;O) Basically, I stuffed my face with Chinese last night...then nodded off on the sofa - I had every intention of making this post before bedtime, but alas, I started a-snoring and was told off by Grim - apparently, I snore really loudly, I cannot for the life of me think that this is true though ROFL





Anyways... without further ado - THANK YOU to all who joined in with the challenge last week and here is the theme for this weeks challenge - to use GOLD on your art work. To join in, all you need to do is make a piece of art - card, ATC, tag etc... and then once you have blogged, leave me a comment here with a link to the place you are showing your art, then I can hop and see you. I am also adding in some Blog Candy as a thank you for your support during my house move and for visiting me when I haven't had chance to come and visit you :O)) It is a little collection of stashy stuff; an 8" canvas, some Idea-ology in a little box, a Tim Holtz Ruler Book, some tags in two different sizes, some flowers, the little box I made for my entry...





There is the piccie and with the logo, which you will need to pop into your sidebar to be in with a chance of winning. As ever with the Candy on the Sunday Stamper, if you join in with the challenge as well as leaving me a comment and linking from your Blog, you will have your name into the hat twice :O)) Simples! *as the MeerKats would say...is anyone else totally loving those Compare the MeerKat adverts?? And, why do they have Russian accents? Aren't MeerKats African??? I digress, as usual!! *





The little box was painted with Alfie ... don't worry, I haven't taken leave of my senses and started using my puddytat to paint things, no, this is a little matchpot from B&Q ...tis nearly as nice as Trad Tan! Then I added some Gold dabber with my finger so highlight the woody bits.... then I stamped scrolly bits on (Mr Holtz's collection) and then I added a Book Plate, which was painted and sanded and then highlighted with gold.




I also made a tag - nowt new there then... colouring the base with a combo of Broken China and Stormy Sky DI's - then sploshing water onto it to make it a bit grungey, then using some sequin waste and gold dabber and my finger again to make some little dots on the background. I stamped some backgroundy images and the sentiment (again, Mr Holtz's collection) and then added a piccie from the new Lost & Found paper stack - popping this behind another Book Plate which had been painted, sanded... you get the picture (LOL) I filled the centre of the plate up with Sepia Accents to make the photo look even older and then roughed the edges of the tag and used some more Gold dabber as highlights.




So... to join in with the challenge, all you need to do is make a piece of art, blog it, link it, add a piccy of the candy logo in your sidebar with a link to here, leave me a comment - if you join in as well as linking, you get entered twice. The challenge will be open til 22:00 Saturday 15th May and then winner will be chosen at random from a hat. Thanks for looking - have a fab week! TTFN
