Sunday Stampers - Week 147 - Not Fade Away...

...Goodly Afternoon Stampers... erm... firstly, thank you for all the lovely entries last week... and secondly... apologies for posting the new challenge so late. The reasons are... last night the t'internet decided to go off... so I couldn't get online at my usual time... and I was fully intending to post first thing this morning... but... alas... Lionel Laptop is in a very grave situation and he is clinging onto life with his tiny little keys... dunno what it wrong with it... my tech guy is trying to fix it at the moment (that be Grim, of course, the font of all knowledge when it comes to anything computery or teckernicals... thank heavens for him!)



Anyways... the new theme today is ... to use... TEXTURE FADES/EMBOSSING FOLDERS/DRY EMBOSSING on your entry... along with a bit of stamping thrown in for goodly measures. To join in, as usual, leave a comment for me here along with a link to the place that you are showing your entry. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 2nd April 2011. This weeks theme has been chosen by Ellen ... I am now recruiting for peeps to give me ideas for themes for the Sunday Stamper... so if you have a good idea and would like to choose a theme for us... please do email me... but wait til Grim has fixed the laptop rofl The only "rule" for the theme is that the theme has to somehow link to a song title... and that can be any song title at all :O))



For my entry this week I have embossed some cardstock that I had inked and sprayed... using Distress Stains and Ranger Colorwash Sprays, I created an inky background and then ran the cardstock through Victor and the sunray Texture Fade. I sanded the cardstock and then stuck it to the frame using Multi Medium



The little frame was attached with jump rings and those little hooky screwy things... being covered with more of the coloured cardstock and having a big layered Rosette in the middle... the card to make the Rosette was more of the inky sprayed stuff... stamped with a script stamp - but that doesn't show up too well on the pics. Oh and underneath the little hanging is a piece of card that I painted, inked, sprayed, splatted and then stamped... again, it doesn't show up too well on the pics.



Right... I had better go... my handsome tech guy is waiting to get back to sorting out the probs with Lionel... it is serious folks... which isn't a good sign - there is something wrong with Outlook... and that means that I can't get my emails... which is annoying...so, if you have emailed me and I haven't replied, it isn't cos I am rude... nope, it is because my stoopid computer is having surgery! Thanks for looking... TTFN
