Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. First of all... thank you for all your wonderful entries last week! This week the Sunday Stamper is being sponsored by The Artistic Stamper. The prize, which will be given to one randomly chosen entrant, consists of two sets of the brand new ranges of stamps that have just been released this weekend... these sets will be of your own choice and... there is also Kling On to mount the stamps onto too!! Result!! So, without further ado (and I bet you have guessed already... ) the theme this week is .. BLUE. To join in all you have to do is make a little something... include the theme and some rubberstamping, leave a comment for me here with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can then hop over to see you. AND... if you just leave a comment you will be entered once into the hat... if you also enter the challenge, you will be entered twice into the hat. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Friday April 15th 2011 and the winner will be announced on Saturday April 16th 2011. I am closing the challenge a day earlier than normal because next Sunday is a very special day for me... and I will explain more then :O))
So... the theme being blue, I decided to use all my blue Distress Stains and alter a tag. I smooshed the Stains onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water... dipped the tag and dried it and then kept dipping until I had the look I wanted. I used Faded Jeans Stains to stamp the background script stamp... this gives a lovely splodgy look... and then used Broken China Stains to pounce and splat onto the tag.
The diamond stamp was stamped using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and I used a long sentiment from Tim's Stuff to Say set... stamping with Coffee Archival. The Glassine papers which were cut in the Tattered Florals die were also lightly coloured with Stains and then scrumpled up... and the Ticket was also splodged into more Stains. Oh and I used the Stains to colour the Idea-ology Trim ribbons too! Oh and I almost forgot to say... all of the stamps, products etc can be got from The Artistic Stamper...
I originally scheduled this post on Friday night but... hurrah and thrice... the hotel has WiFi so Lionel is working goodly... and I can do a bit more waffling about the show... which was busy busy yesterday ... it was lovely indeed to meet so many of you... and to meet up with old pals too... I had a bit of a mishap with the hat...erm... it is soooo top heavy and it kept falling down over my face so I took it off... Jennie did get a photo of me wearing it though!!! I actually suggested she took it... I know, I took leave of my senses for a few seconds... to late to delete it now too lol Anyways... hope to meet more of you today... Stand #49... do pop by to say HI!!! Thanks for looking...TTFN
