Still THAT stamp...

Can you use one stamp too many times? Nah...
This is another card from the Craft Stamper Magazine. I have coloured the background with Distress Ink, and used some sequin waste to create the dots.
The reindeer and snowflakes (Tim Holtz) are stamped in white Stazon Opaque onto acetate. The Reindeer (word) is a rub-on.

I do love that stamp...

Yes, another swirly Tim holtz reindeer... I cant help it, it is such a lovely stamp!
This card can be used in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week - Distresss inks.
The glossy card has been coloured with distress inks (dusty concord and worn lipstick), then stamped with stazon. All the stamps are Tim Holtz.

ArtsyCrafts weekend October 2010

What an amazing weekend! As always the extremely talented, Lin of LB Crafts and Leandra of PaperArtsy created these stunning projects to teach and stimulate our creative juices. Of course their wonderful helpers Blingy Lynne "Cheryl" and the 2 Marks were also on hand to sort us out.
The weekend was packed with new techniques, great ideas, wonderful colour combinations, and lots of fun and laughter. My amatuer photography does not really do the beautiful pieces justice, but it gives you an idea of what I made.
We had 3 colour choices for our 3 projects. My first choice was plae pink/pale green/silver.
The green frame is actually silver metal, painted with green.
This is a book (outside) :

Inside : the owl is in a boxed framed recess we created

My second choice was Red/Brown/Gold with this lovely deep boxed frame

Finally, our big project on Sunday was this gorgeous piece. I chose pale blue, cream and gold as my colours. My photography really doesn't do the textures and details justice, you'll have to come and visit and see it in person!

Apart from the wonderful (messy) artwork we played with, I also met some really lovely ladies to share the weekend with, and loved making new friends.
I was also very lucky, and won a goodie bag in the raffel.

All together, one of the best crafting weekends ever!
