The stamps used for this project are from the Tandastamps India set and very fab it is too.
So the pink card (which was just cheap matt cardstock) has been stamped with one of the small accent stamps using the Castaway pad and I didn’t wait for five minutes as it said on the label……….I just ironed it as soon as I had finished stamping. Admittedly it did take a while for the effect to come through but once it did I was very happy with it even though it was a lot more subtle than I had expected.
I wanted the background to look like a piece of fabric so have embellished it with tiny peeloff dots and lines. The image was then stamped and embossed onto gold pearlised card and cut out. I had wanted to mount this onto a plain orange card but didn’t have any so I took a cream pearlised card and coloured it first with Stazon Mustard and then dragged the Stazon Pumpkin over the top for a distressed look. This is probably better done with an ink pad that has had a bit of use rather than a new one.
Dead chuffed I got a result so will play with that a bit more now that I know what sort of card is best for it.
Next on my list will be the Memories Mists which I have just bought four of in some yummy colours. Will let you know how I get on with those.
Right well I have just been tagged for the very first time so I have to sort that out and pick who I will tag………..this may take some time so please try not to snore if you fall asleep while waiting……..lol!!!
I have just one shot at this tonight so I hope it works
[url=http://craftsbycarolyn.blogspot.com]Carolyn[/url] has tagged me
1)Find the nearest book
That was up on a high shelf
2)Name the book and the author
Enquire Within Upon Everything by Herbert Jenkins one of those books you dip into and has information on just about every subject. Given to some poor soul as a Sunday Schhool prize in November 1928………I bought it for stamping onto or altering in some way.
3)Go to page 123 and then the fifth line of text and type the following three lines onto your blog
the solid form, and if stirred as it
cools it separates in a state of fine
division. As this process is trouble
An article on Sal Ammoniac as a Freezing mixture……..very very boring.
OK so I tag
Please, please let it work cos I don’t have time to redo it if it doesn’t.
Night night all
