Sunday Stamper - Week 330 - Fake Plastic Trees

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Thank you all for your fab entries for last weeks starry challenge - it was great to see all the different ways you did interpreted the theme.   The theme this week is FAUX TECHNIQUES You can interpret the challenge how you like: faux rust, faux porcelain, faux metal...  the choice, it be yours!  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 *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 25th October 2014.
 



My entry this week is my class sample for today's Melty Distress Pot class at Daisy's Jewels in Coventry so I won't go into great detail on how I made it... I can tell you that I used Graphic 45's Twas The Night Before Xmas papers for my florally embellishment which I then dipped into clear UTEE in the Melting Pot and turned them into Faux Porcelain flowers and leaves... I LOVE doing this... in fact, it is probably the main thing I use my Pot for!


The background of the tag is Distress Ink - Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain... and then some stamping using Tim's flourishy stamp *this is one of my fave stamps ever* and a music score - both from old Xmas sets.  A smidge of beeswax appears on the tag... and there you have it.... I know, secretive today aren't I?  *teehee* :O)


I hope you enjoy the challenge theme this week - so often I chose a colour or a particular item, I thought that this was a nice one so you could go and get thoroughly messy in your arty spaces today - or all week for that matter as the challenge is open all week.   I shall away now... thanks for looking and have a goodly day!  TTFN

I had hoped to join you at Daisys today bit it wasn't to be and now I can see what you were doing I'm sad :( On the bright side I see you'll be there again soon so hopefully I'll be able to join you then.
Hope you are feeling a bit better and getting to the root of the problems you've been having. xx

Beautiful as always. I hope you are feeling butter now.
Hugs from Chris x

Chris Kelly said...

Please don't feel the butter! I know we like to get messy but I think feeling the butter would be a step too far.
More hugs from Chr.is

Swooning over this and although I am no longer melt pot shy I haven't had the nerve to do the faux porcelain flowers yet.

I've been getting all heavy metal this week, but in a girly sort of way.

Sorry not to join in this week. Had a 9 hr round trip drive to cornwall today for a cremation service. Didn't get my CC3 challenge done either :-( my worn cover is still NEKID and devoid of inks and embellishm!!! Hope I can slide it in to a future project . Hope you are feeling better or at least getting some answers of why you feel poorly x
