Hi crafty friends and any other friends that pop by. I spent some hours down at Suzicraft a couple of days ago and this is what I made while I was there.I bought the Indigo Blue stamp from Suzicraft a couple of days before and was excited to try it out. I firstly stamped the lady with Versamark and then embossed with black wow powder. Next I distressed the tag. Once I was happy with that I used some of the other stamps in the set the finish the card. The swirl is really nice and i shadow stamped that. The Flower was made with my dimesions blooms stamp. coloured and the when glued togethere and dry I bought some narrow purple ribbon from Suzicraft and tied a knot in the end, threaded it through the centre of the flower , I then left a short length of ribbon and threaded other end through hole in tag. The flower therfore is not attached to the card but has movement. For the purpose of the photo I hooked it over the top of the tag so it wouldnt hide the artwork.
Sorry bloggeers out there that there has been nothing new posted for a couple of weeks. I know you have been looking but my trip away with my buddies Carole, Marilyn, Diane and myself ( In order left to right in the photo threw me into chaos. Firstly I dont do Flying water and tunnels so as you can imagine this was a big thing for me. The solution to the nerves was to go into the buffet car on the Eurostar and get plastered. We did a pretty good job of it. I could sit here and talk for evermore about my trip as it was wonderful. We laughed from start to finish. Thank you my wonderful friends, but I wont bore you as I am sure that most of you have been to far more exotic places than my trip to Paris. Since comeing back it has been hard trying to get back into the swing but I have done a few things and have attached a tag I have have done stamping and colouring with H 2Os. I just love the shimmer effect of these. If you dont have H20s then you can mix mica powder with water and use as paint and get a very similar effect. I finished it off by useing disstress inks around the edge and useing my "Designs by Ryn" water droplet stamp. Hope you like it.
Sorry blogger friends if I have been neglecting you lately but life has just been so busy and I am off tomorrow to Paris via the Euro tunnel. have to admit being a bit nervous. Well actually terified but hey ho of we go. My friends are going to celbrate our big birthdays so couldnt let them down. I thought I would leave you with this card I made for a crafting buddy from Suxicraft our good old Dimply whos birthday it was last week. It was made useing Kraft card and Toms flower stencils coloured with tim Holtz distress inks. the lettering was some card alphabets I had in my crafty stash. See you all when I get back and until then.
