Good morning and welcome to a brand spanking new challenge from the
Maria Therese has provided the lovely sketch for you all to use
and the optional theme is ‘Love’
Once again there is a fabulous prize up for grabs,
a pic & mix of 6 Sugar Nellie stamps of your choice..
and what with some fabby new ones in stock you’ll be spoilt for choice!!
But .. wait for it!
There are going to be 2 winners this fortnight, 6 stamps each!!
On to my card:
I finally got around to inking up this yummie stamp ‘Worried‘
and stamped him in brown onto water colour paper.
Took a waterbrush and smudged some of the lines of the image.
I then scored vertical lines all over the image,
and inked the edges with distress inks.
The other background papers I also made myself
by using the embossed white papers by SU!,
sponged distress inks all over,
this really makes the embossed patterns stand out.
Huge silk bow threaded through the image finishes off the card a treat.
As always.. please visit the blog for all the details
and gain lots of inspiration from my DT Sweeties
On another note..
I’ve decided to alter my ATG yesterday.
I took the tape wheels off and covered up the bit’s I didn’t want painting with masking tape.
Then sprayed on the first layer with plastic compatible paint.. looking gooood!
I wanted to do 3 coats and had to wait an hour between each one..
Then 24 hrs for the last coat to totally set.
Talk about watching paint dry!
When the 3rd coat was on,
I quickly nipped out to take Lolly to brownies and when I got back hubby only decided to have a clean up and chucked the whole caboodle to one side ready to be skipped!!
Needless to say all the tacky paint was scoffed & scratched..
tell you, I was about to kill him!
Will have to wait till this evening,
sand down as much as I can and start again..
with hopefully no interfering hubby’s about!
Hugs, Marlene x
