Curiously Scribbling...

...aha! I must be feeling a bit better because I had the urge to get inky this morning! Hurrah and thrice, I am over the worst I think... the Dr was very helpful yesterday, he told me that I have had Flu... I did tell him that I didn't think it was Swine Flu because I haven't come out in rashers (grrroan!) Anyways, I have got a viral thingy-wotsit in my lungs which is making the old crackles and pops sound like that... so I have been given a Ventolin Inhaler... hey, and no comments about me being an old puffer ROFL Anyways, I was sitting there this morning and I heard this pitifull sound... kind of a gentle mumbling and it was saying "Hels, Hels, we need you" So, I hastened to the Room of Stash and lo! There were all my rubber stamps, sitting there, crying and asking for attention... so of course, I had to indulge them LOL



I am entering this tag into the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge... hosted and devised by the uber talented Linda - if you click her name you can see her blog and all the deets etc are there. So, the theme this week is Scribble Stain Distress.... ooooooh! Yum! Only one of my favest techniques... so I got out the DI's and Re-Inkers and had a play.



The colours I have used are Crushed Olive, Chipped Sapphire and Tumbled Glass DI's with Bundled Sage and Brushed Corduroy Re-Inkers... mmmm, loving those colours together. The little watch is a piece of paper snipped from the Lost & Found stack and popped behind a fragment which I then hole punched with the old Crop-A-Dile... not one of my better idea's that... I thought that the CaD would have no probs getting thru a Fragment but it was tough and I nearly broke into a sweat doing that! Anyways... those stamps are a-calling me again so I shall away to tend to them while I have the energy LOL Thanks for looking... have a great day! TTFN

Hels, you poor girl, you've had a rough go of it, haven't you?? I saw your post this morning that you're feeling poorly again. I'm so sorry! I hope this relapse is quickly over, and that you're back to 100% by tomorrow!

How you managed to make something so wonderful when you were feeling so lousy, I'll never know, but you certainly created another work of gorgeous gorgeousness here! Your scribble stain is beauteous, and the lace and stamping and fabulous filmstrip suit it perfectly.

Okay, my dear, you rest and rejuvenate and drink some hot cocoa. Love you tons and hope your 2011 is magical!
