Sunday Stamper - Week 293 - Black & Gold

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Many thanks for the lush orange entries for last weeks challenge :O)   The theme this week is a nice easy one to get the juices going... and as the title suggests it is... BLACK & GOLD.   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 to leave me a comment along with a linky to the place you are showing your entry.  If you haven't got a blog, you can also join in via Facebook (tag my name on your upload) or by emailing a small resolution piccie of your creation to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 8th February 2014.



My entry this week is actually my class sample for one of the projects that I am teaching  to 19 lovely ladies this weekend on my Middlesbrough retreat.  I am confusing myself already because I am scheduling this post (remember last week that Lionel Laptop refused to let me get onto yonder t'internet? didn't want to take a chance on being late again this week!)  Anyways, I have actually just taught this class yesterday (which is actually tomorrow because it is Friday now and not Sunday... yikes, confoooosing meself!!!)



I won't go into to great a detail on how the canvas was altered as that won't be fair on the ladies who have come along to the class.  You will be able to see the mahooosive rose though... that big one there is the new Tattered Florals die (about 5" across) and the smaller ones that look teensy are actually the regular Tattered Florals... all made out of cardstock to formed into the roses.  I loves making these ones as they just look so big and blousy!



I shall away now... it is still Friday and I have to get all my stash loaded into Ferdy and then get myself ready for the drive 'Up North.  Have a great Sunday and rest of the week.  Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Sumptuous canvas. Loving that gold lettering and can't wait to hear how you did it. Those flowers are stunning too. I've started early this week (sorry)and this won't be the last (sorry again!) Btw - I grilled my postman, he claims to be innocent so I released him back into the community!!

Still drooling over the gold words. Sorry you are not well, hope you're over it soon. 2014 has been a bit rubbish and not even any snow of note.
I did another black and gold doodah
