Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!
Many thanks for all your fabby black and gold entries last week.
The theme this week is DIAMONDS - how you choose to interpret this is entirely up to you - add in diamond stamping, stencilling, diamond embellies, real diamonds ... 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 15th February 2014.
My entry this week is one of the samples I have made for todays tellybox shows. I will be on at 12pm with Dean for a two hour Tool Shed and today I will be using lots of 3D stuff so you can see how easy it is to create nice bits of art for your home. This frame is part of a pack of three that I have split down into individual frames. The frame is paper covered, the gorgeous Teresa Collins for Creative Expressions papers, sanded, edged with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and then cut up to make a piece for the middle that was coloured with more Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. I overstamped the inky paper with a gorgeous diamond stamp from the show - Heartfelt Creations again :O) using Wendy's Signature Archival Ink, Orange Blossom colour (which goes perfectly with Rusty Hinge, love this colour muchly)
See, I am now a bit addicted to making these mahoosive flowers now and here's another one... and I will be doing a full step by step photo tut tomorrow on how to make them from the Flora Grande Heartfelt Creations stamp. The leaves are also Heartfelt Creations, and yes, I cut them out! A bit fiddly but so worth it as they are really pretty and delicate, these were stamped with Wendy's Fern Green Archival Ink. A little pile of embellies hidden around the flower including Embellish Your Art and some metal bits and bobs finished off my frame nicely.
I really must stop gabbing and get moving... I have got a couple of boxes to pack up and pop into Ferdy so we are ready for the off in the morning. I hope you can join me at midday and again at 5pm... all the channel deets etc are over in the left hand sidey bar. Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday! TTFN
