Well I was so chuffed yesterday - I won some lovely stamps (this months club set) from Little Claire - for my mum. I already have my own set and now my lovely mum has hers! Thanks so much to Little Claire for running the competition and picking my comment! It means a lot! Talking of my mum - I think we're back to having a crafternoon today - we're working through sheenas India DVD - looking forward to it mum - I'll see you after swimming! And if you're here for a nosy Jacqui - happy birthday!
Talking of the sheena india stamps - I've been having another play - this is what I've made for the challenge at Crafters Companion this month where the theme is masculine - I know its pink ..... but I think Nigel May would love it so its masculine to me!
Lets start with the background - I made this one up using distress stains and ink and water - initially stains applied to my craft sheet and water flicked on then the card swooshed through. After drying I did a bit of spritz and flick then dried again and added the distress inks to cover any white.
Next I cut a piece of the card to size and added to the elephants embossing folder. I ran it through my grand calibur then swiped a black staz on pad over the top to bring out the detail. Next I did the mat and the sentiment stamping in versamark and adding gold detail powder then heat embossing.
Finally I coloured the elephant with my spectrum noirs and fussy cut. I'm very pleased with this one - hope you like it too!
