Sunday Stamper - Week 194 - Got To Get You Into My Life

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all! Many many thanks for all the fabulous stitched creations entered last week... and thanks to the email entries too... it makes me smile big to see all your fabby artwork! So, this week I have chosen another classic Beatles track for the song title... it would have been George Harrison's 69th birthday yesterday, so this is in his honour. The theme this week is... LIFE. To join in is very simples; make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in some stamping and the theme and then pop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you don't have a blog/picassa/image hosting wotsit you can email me with your entry too. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 3rd March 2012 (already!!! March!!!)


So... my entry... a tag. *for a change* I decided on a light fresh look for the background so blended Old Paper, Bundled Sage and Iced Spruce DI's over the tag. The edges were blended with Gathered Twigs to "close" in the design. I used the Bundled Sage to stamp a script over the tag and then made a snippet of cardstock using Multi Medium as a resist and blending Bundled Sage and Iced Spruce over it to make it slightly darker than the rest of the tag. I used Jet Black Archival to stamp the word LIFE... this is from a Tim sentiment stamp and I just masked off the rest of the words using a Post It Note... that is why I lurve stamps so much... because you can use just a smidge of the image and get different results...


Anyways... where was I? Ah yes, making the tag: so.. I used the Mini Tattered Florals die to cut some Lost & Found snippets (2" bits) and made them into roses... and added some Film Strip made into a banner behind them... oh and I also cut a flourishy thingywotsit from kraft cardstock and went to blend it with Gathered Twigs but I was a bit heavy handed and ended up snapping it in two... no worries, it works in two lol I added some Idea-ology to decorate... squidging Juniper Dabber into the Word Stick to highlight the letters... and clipping it onto the tag with a Charm Clip. Oh and yes, the lace border thingy at the bottom of the tag... the wastey bits from yesterday's tag...



Alright, well, it is getting near to bedtime but I have got this big idea in my head to alter a paper tidy box jobby that has been kicking about the Room of Stash for several millennia... why all of a sudden it is interesting well, I don't know! Oh and... I nearly forgot... my voice... it is back! YAH! It has gradually got better today... I have gone from a squeaky croak, through sounding like Phyllis Pearce from Corrie (yep, showing my age) to sort of normal... Right... am offski... enough waffling! Thanks for looking... have a grand Sunday! TTFN

Lovely theme Hels and George was my favourite Beatle too. They were definitely my era!

Your tag for this week's theme is absolutely gorgeous. I must remember that colour combo as it's really beautiful.

Glad your voice is almost back to normal. Take care of it till Tuesday.
