Gooooodly Morning Stampers and a very Happy Easter to you all! Big thank you to you all for your great entries to last weeks challenge. This week the theme will be... MEMORIES. As ever, how you interpret is entirely up to you... it could be the word memory or memories... it could be something that evokes a memory with you... the choice is yours. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping then pop back here, leave a comment with a linky to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop over to visit you. If you don't have a blog, you can also join in via Facebook (just tag my name) or by emailing me a small res. photo. The theme will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 26th April 2014.
My entry this week is the result of a "playtime" I had the other day. I have been itching to try this technique out ever since I saw the awesome Wendy Vecchi demo it.. you can see her VIDEO HERE. She is a GODDESS!!! I won't spoil it for you... but I will give you a hint: rubbing alcohol in the UK is Surgical Spirit (well, at least I think it is cos it worked perfectly for me!)
As well as the base technique, I was also very inspired indeedily by Wendy, check out HER BLOG .. adding stencilling (all her delish stencils btw) and layering up the background with different colours and stamping. I also added little puffs of Forest Moss Distress Marker using the new Distress Spritzer. I forgot how fun using one of these little puffers is! My stepson had one in an arty kit I bought him yonks ago. I have to say that the Distress one is much better, you get a better grade of puffage with this one :O) It would have been remiss of me not to add a big bundle of embellies... so I die cut some greenery using Tim's new die and Distress Core-dinations. Also in there are some bits of Embellish Your Art, some pearls and a smidge of Idea-ology. Oh and the rose? Was actually one I made during a class last weekend and I liked the colours so much I didn't chuck it away. The whole piece was actually made around the rose!
I must dash... not only am I late posting my Sunday Stamper (was a bit knackered last night so decided to get up early and then decided to ignore the alarm!) I am also going to be late for the start of the British Touring Car Championship programme on ITV4 - which is starting in ...er.... 2 minutes ago!!! As ever I am shouting.... GO PLATO!!! Thanks for looking, have a great day! TTFN
