THIS BLOG CANDY DRAW IS NOW CLOSED
THANKS TO ALL WHO TOOK PART
THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON MONDAY EVENING
I cannot believe that I have reached the 10,000 mark on my hit counter……..but I don’t think I will demand a recount……lol!!!
So this calls for a celebration and a bit of Blog Candy methinks. What do you say?
What I will offer is for the winner to choose their most favourite card/technique from my blog, including any posted up to the closing date and I will make up a pack based on that card/technique. This will include card blanks, stamped images and a few extra bits. Unfortunately I will be unable to include any noxious chemicals. These will have to be added by the winner.
To win all you have to do is tell me…..
Your most favourite crafting item.
It can be an essential tool or a favourite stamp you keep going back to…..anything.
Leave your comments on this post only.
Closing date will be midnight on Sunday June 3rd 2007.
Come and play……wherever you are in the world.
Todays cards are some that I have made using some paper from a DCWV pack and a very simple stamping technique using an Adirondack ink pad.
I get so involved sometimes with all the more complicated techniques that it is nice to do something quite simple and easy.
The flower and the car have just been stamped in Stonewash Adirondack onto smooth white card. I then allowed the ink to dry a little before taking a water brush and drawing in some of the colour from the outline to fill in the design.
If you don’t have a water brush just use a damp paint brush.
The flower has been enclosed in a metal rimmed tag using the MM Tag Maker but you could just as easily mount it onto a square of silver card. I used ribon over the join in the papers and stamped a simple greeting using a Stazon ink pad in Midnight Blue.
The car has been cut out and attached with foam pads and the Thin Cuts Gear die cuts have been attached with eyelets and a piece of ribbon has been attached with a brad.
Have to say that I am pretty chuffed with how these turned out and I love these two paper designs which I also have in a gorgeous green that I am eager to use.
Well despite having had a sleep when I got in from work I am still pretty tired so I think I will go and have a read and then catch some more zeds. Got a busy day ahead so need to be on form.
Bye for now
