I finally got round to completing Hel's Sunday stamping challenge only two days late so not bad for me really, her theme this week is the colour RED...
Which tied in very nicely with my class sample for Thursday as we are doing dry embossing (with the Cuttlebug and embossing folders) and heat embossing. I've created a canvas board and used the free stamp that came with this months Craft Stamper, my most favourite magazine, and embossed with an off gold colour, lots of fired brick and frayed burlap distressing, a fair bit of background stamping and some embossed and distressed card, I've also die cut some swirls and "coloured" them with an embossing pen, added embossing powder and voila gold swirly bits!!!
It's a similar piece to one I created last month Here, but with the addition of the embossed flowers.
Ooh and I bought knobs today look...
Whilst I was inking this morning with my distress tool it annoyed me that I had to keep changing my foam to change colours...then i had one of those lightbulb moments...
And created these...just stuck some self adhesive Velcro on the bottom and stuck my foams on...they aren't as brilliant as Mr Holtz's tool but they do work and at a fiver for four they are considerably cheaper!!!
And finally...it's official...I am a tramp!!!
I have a pair of boots I bought in the January sales that I absolutely lurve they are funky and very comfortable especially when I am on my feet all day, however last night the sole finally flapped and started chatting with me every time I took a step...the only glue in the house that I deemed suitable for the purpose was contact adhesive...so carefully following the instructions applied it and wrapped an elastic band around the said boot to hold it in place whilst the glue dried...nipped out for a crafty smoke...in said boots, my hands covered in distress ink and my hair a pretty wild mane after washing it and letting it dry without the use of heat or product...imagine the look...not good...needless to say I didn't photograph myself...I did however buy new boots today, used my hair straighteners and my fingers...well after completing the RED challenge I've definitely been caught red handed!!!
I'm off to give my old boots the send off they deserve!!!
