Alan and I are child free this weekend, Harrison has gone off, for his first Cub camp under canvas and as i still haven't bought a hoover yet, i will be crafting tomorrow, yipee and tomorrow night we are off to see Samantha Barks - she was 'Eponine' in 'Les Miserables' the movie and in my opinion should have got the Oscar instead of Anne Hathaway.
Today we are up to our mid month at Penny Black And More and this months Challenge is 'Flower Power' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :
And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, so pop over to Penny Black And More and check out the other amazing inspiration the very talented team have come up with and join in the fun - but please do remember, you can use any image you like, except Digi's.
I learnt to do this technique in a recent crafting class and is very diffferent for me !!, the image is: Penny Black - 'Thoughtfulness - Pansy / 740K / 1997', was coloured using : Distress Inks - 'Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Stormy Sky, Old Paper, Milled Lavender and Wilted Violet', i then stamped the image on vellum and heat embossed : Stamp Stuff - 'Crystal' and then stuck it on top of the coloured image. The background was made by : wiping some Distress Ink - 'Wilted Violet' on my mat and adding Imagination Crafts - 'Clear Stencil Medium' and then spreading over a stencil by Jaime Echt and finished off with some ribbon from my stash.
The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :
Stamps And Stencils - where June's Challenge is 'Floral Frenzy'
Sparkle And Sprinkle - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes, as long as use Embossing Powder'
Addicted To Stamps - where Challenge No: 128 is 'Flowers'
Di's Snippets Playground - where the lovely Di is up to Week No ; 233
