Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Big thanks for all your grand entries for last weeks challenge... on with this week which sees a nice and easy "colour" theme... to use... BROWN somewhere on your design. To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND some stamping and then pop back here and leave a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog or web-photo-hosty thingy, you can also join in via email or on Facebook. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 23rd March 2013.
It is a little known fact about me... you know, that I loves brown (ok, everyone knows it is my comfort zone lol) Anyways, when I got my Snazzy's DT pack last month I fair did a whoop-de-whoop because it was the Engraver collection from Prima... and lots of browns and neutrals in the colour palette. I had hoped to be able to get this particular piece finished before today but alas, I ran out of time. So, instead, I finished it off last night after my class and decided to use it for the Sunday Stamper.
You will see my fave paper blocking technique going on, this is a really cool way of using up all those ickle scraps of paper you have kicking about in your crafty stash. The blocks were just glued onto the canvas with a bit of Cosmic Glue and layered as I went to add in some depth.
The stamping is a little bit frugal on this piece but it still qualifies because if you look closely you will be able to see some script on the metal Graphic 45 butterfly... I did that with Jet Black Archival and then heat set it... and also the little black dotty patches... that is a brand spanking new stamp from the genius that is Finnabair (HERE is her blog) and it just so happens that Snazzy's have some of her new Sunrise Sunset collection fresh in stock.. ooohlalalaa... don't tell anyone but... ahem... I have a little basket sitting there, FULL of the new goodies... and they will be coming home with me later today! Teehee! Well, it is compensation for my terrible disappointment with the gorgeous shoes that were made for pixie feet... I got the refund... so ... erm... I spending it on... stash! Like I said before... stash doesn't have to fit rofl
Anyways... that is more than enough wafflingtons from me for one day... I shall away as I am up early again for my second class at Snazzy's... thank you to the lovely ladies who came along to get all hot and bothered in my Melt Art class today, was lovely to see you again/meet you! Have a fabby weeks peeps.... Thanks for looking... TTFN!
