Sunday Stamper - Week 166 - Wish You Were Here

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Many thanks for the fab arty entries for last weeks challenge. This week the challenge is actually totally different to the one I had chosen... more of that later though. So the challenge theme this week is.... WISH. A simple one and can be interpreted how you like. To join in all you need to do is make a little something, it can be anything you fancy, then add in some stamping and the theme... leave a comment for me here with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can then hop on over to visit you. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday August 13th 2011.




So... the theme this week - total change of heart, mainly because I have been in the wars again and let's just say, sitting for any length of time at all is proving to be rather more painful than usual... yes, I slid on the stairs... again... and this time have the most horrendous sciatica... akkk. Anyways... the entry I was planning was one of those that needs a lot of time spending on it... so instead, because Mr "Waltzes Off At The Jar of a Buttock" Mojo has...erm... waltzed off, I rummaged through my tag basket for ideas... and ended up making a simples tag. I know, it is so similar to all the other 839 I have made recently but... I am rather enamoured with the big blousy Faux Porcelain rose... I made one for yesterdays post and another tonight, I can see a habit forming!




And... the colours on the tag... truly are that shockingly bright! That is the Distress Stains I used... Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Aged Mahogany. The background text is stamped in Monarch Orange Archival ink... I have to say... I am LOVING those new Archival colours and am gradually building up the collection... Vermillion is another stunner too! Anyways... whilst the Melt Pot was out, I stamped the word Wish into an Ornate Frame and then poured UTEE into the frame... oooohlalala, I forgot how fab this look is... in fact, I have rekindled my lurve-affaire (posh spelling as befits such a lurve!) with the Melt Pot... in fact, to the point that if it isn't tied down it is either being dunked into the pot or poured over.




Actually, that reminds me... to remind you... (and yes, it was written on a note which is filed in a safe place lol) I have a couple of Melt Pot workshops coming up this month and next month... so if you fancy getting hot with me... (oh dear, no matter how many times I try and write that a different way it just sounds soooo wrong... you know what I mean though lol) Where was I? Ah yes, workshops, The Stamp Attic... deets in my sidebar. Right.. tis waaaay past my bedtime folks so I better stop with the waffle and go and rest my aching buttock!! Thanks for looking... TTFN

This is a beautiful look! I love those bright colors and the shinny rose. Wish I could make your class.

Sorry to hear you are warring again! I have never made a tag, but you may be starting a new phase and addiction for me. Can't get to town right away so it may be awhile before I can put my head and brain to it, or maybe leave my brain out of it as I tend to overthink and then I have a mess. See ya Wednesday.

Elaine said...

Hope you're feeling a bit better now. Love that porcelain rose technique - I WISH I had more time to have a go at it!! Anyway here's a quick card:

Hope you're feeling a little better when you read this! Loved this week's challenge and your tag is so purdy (didn't enter last week as my sunset looked more like it needed a trip to A&E as I couldn't get the right amount of red in it!) http://gabrielle-price.blogspot.com/2011/08/wishful-inking.html

Awww Hels, so sorry to hear you've hurt yourself. Sciatica is horrid... That tag is glorious - I luuurrrve the colour (how's that for lurve?). Haven't got any distress stains yet but can do amazing things with the distress inks and my Inkylicious Ink Dusters!! Just starting to learn the Melting Pot.

Kirsten Alicia said...

Hi Hels, I'm sorry you're in pain, hope you feel better soon. Your most recent tags are fabulous. I love the colours & the flowers are so lovely. One of these days I will get my act together & take part in a challenge or two.

Julie said...

Take it easy Hels. Health and well being comes before everything else. I love your beautiful tag and challenge this week. I will try really hard to have a play. Right now in front of me is a MT. Everest of things that have to be done!!!
And I hate mountain climbing!
