Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday
to you all! Thanks for your fab birdy entries to last weeks challenge. The new theme
this week is... STEAMPUNK.
You can interpret the challenge how you like: steampunky stamp, add cogs and gears, grunge it up... the
choice, it be yours! 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 *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!* and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to
the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you. If you
haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or
by emailing a small res.pic to me. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 14th February 2015.
My entry this week is my class sample from a great day teaching yesterday at the Ali-Craft Retreat in Daventry. I always have fun teaching the folks who come along to their retreats and yesterday was just fab. A bigger class than I normally am used to... 30 people (!) but 30 people means that I get to see 30 completely different projects at the end of the class... that is one of the most rewarding things for me, seeing all the different interpretations. Big thank you to Ali and Iain for inviting me again and to all the delegates who were such fun to teach.
I won't go into great detail on how I made this... it wouldn't be fair on the peeps who came along to play yesterday... but I can tell you there are several Distress Ink techniques - the colours I used are Rusty Hinge, Antique Linen, Stormy Sky, Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs.
There be texture paste and Treasure Gold, Tim stamps, Darkroom Door stamps and then some diecut and metal embellies... voila, one 12" square finished project :O) I have a plan to find a glass fronted 12 x 12 deep frame thingy to pop this into... then it is going on the wall.
That's all for now... I will try to get back to a proper blogging schedule this week... I have a few things made and in need of blogging already so I have no excuse! Thanks for looking and have a fabby day. TTFN
