Sunday Stamper - Week 245 - Man of the World

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all... many thanks for the fabby lurve themed entries last week!  This week the theme is one for the guys... and it is MEN.   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy, add in the theme AND some stamping and then hop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry.  If you don't have a blog or web-photo-thingy, you can also join in via email or on Facebook.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 23rd February 2013.



I am doing a speed-blogging post today as I am writing this late Saturday evening and I needs to get to bed for today I shall be demo-ing for Creative Expressions at the Stitches Trade Show in Birmingham.   I am very fortunate to be able to do something that I loves so much... and I have been making samples and playing with some brand new products including the new Distress Paints and Studio 490 stamps and Art Parts.



The crackle background... wow, isn't that fab?  I saw Wendy Vecchi demo-ing this technique at CHA and fell in lurves as soon as I saw it.  It is a coat of Rock Candy Cracklepaint onto an Art Part piece and then once crackled, applying Distress Paints over the top and blending them to a smooth finish.  How cool!  And... I stamped over the top of the crackle too to add the vintage look.   The guy is a new stamp/Art Part, he is coloured with Distress Markers and the camera, tooo cute!  It too is a stamp/Art Part... the photo's aren't reallly doing it justice, it looks so much more dimensional IRL.  The dot in the middle of the camera is a blob of Glossy Accents.



Like I said... speed-blogging... I shall be back tomorrow with some photo's from today (if I remember to take some lol)  Thanks for looking and have a fabbilicious day!  TTFN
