Same Stamp different technique


Hi everyone. Thank you for popping over to my blog and for those of you that comment an extra special thank you as your words are so much appreciated.
Well I thought I would try and get another quick blog in in January just so I could say I had blogged twice. Even though there was only two days between them. haha.
I have ussed the same stamp as in my previous blog and it just shows the versatility of these stamps. Suzicraft are launching a new range called Majestic Fandangles which can be bought either in the shop or on there e bay shop and Sue has so kindly asked me to make samples for her so I have combined the stamps with the fandangle muxical notes. They are made by Tom from Splodgeaway from his splodge board.I have used a piece of Graphic 45 typography paper and distressed the edges and then gone round with inka golk in gold and silver. I do like this medium. I then used black Gesso for the musical notes and then inka gold around the edges. Next I stamped the dress and hat onto the paper direct and then stamped it again onto another piece of  Graphic 45 paper. I then cut the dress and hat out and paper pieced it onto the stamped image. To complete I put silver sticky back gems randomly onto the dress and added a god flower from my stash. Hope you like it.
Well I am now off the prepare for tomorrow. I am so excited as I am going to a weekend workshop with Hels Sheridan and friends who attended last week said it was amazing but they have been sworn to secrecy and wont tell me what we are doing. Early night for me so I am bright eyed and bushy tailed for tomorrow. Not that I expect to sleep as I am so excited.
Will share with you the projects that we make and so photos next week.
Good night all and hope you have a fabby weekend.x
Happy Crafting

Happy New Year

Well hello to all you bloggers and followers. I am back. I have had a series of problems with computers printers and then lost my camera! After that I lost my mojo but I am back so hope its not to late to wish you all a Happy new year.!!!!
I have managed to do a few cards which I will post over the comeing week and hope you find time to come and have a peek and tell me what you think
These first ones are from the Dylusions Coutoure Range and I have chosen to Zentangle them. Have you ever tried to make a clean classic card? Its not easy.  Mind I did snak a bit of colouring in on one.Well I dont think so anyway as I just want to keep adding things but I forced myself in the case of these ones. What do you think? I chose not to zentangle all of the stamp as I think it gives it a bit more of a punch.
Reading everyones post it looks like we have some beautiful work to look forward to seeing in the comeing year. I am very excited ( and hope it really kicks my mojo back in) to be attending a Hels Sheridan two day workshop at the weekend. I am so excited. Some of my crafty buddies went last weekend and said it was amazing so I cant wait. the following weekend I am going to an Annette Lee workshop which I have been to before and just loved.
Thank you all for supporting my blog last year and sticking with me and visiting this year.
Happy Crafting
