More CB One day special samples

Hello there! Well today should be my last day at work until I find a new job! I think I will enjoy getting the time back to be honest! I need to learn to live a bit more frugally though!!!

I want to share some more CB show samples from last week with you - firstly there was two that I made in pottery to make plaques to hang on the wall.

I saw this first one on the shows -

not sure if i saw this one, however. I took the stamps to Pottyroos in Morecambe and used distress ink to stamp the images then painted them, I had to add the words and lines in black before firing took place as all that gets removed on firing. I will try some other onk types next time but I am pretty much at the investigating stage just now. 

My other samples were all cards ....

This one involved stamping and fussy cutting...

This one used distress to do all the colouring....

and finally I used the gold soft paste to create the background and decoupaged red flowers on top.

I do hope you like them - super stamps!

Big hugs
