Saturday Stampers - Winter

Over at Saturday Stampers this week the
theme is 'Winter'
All I could come up with this morning was
christmasy type themes which for some
reason just didn't work.. Maybe it's because
I'm not in christmas mode yet. I'm denying
all knowledge until Novermber, at which time
I'll start panicking and running round like a
headless chicken lol
I ended up using a photo of the trees in my garden
that was taken last winter. I seem to use this photo
a lot (it's even on my blog header lol) but thought
it would be perfect for the theme this week.
I embossed the tree's to give them an even more
wintery feel.

let me stamp so many on my visit lol.

love the effect and also a Tag. The leaves are
coloured in using a metallic gold pen.
Apologies for the photo's, the tag isn't as harsh
IRL as it looks here :o)

Saturday Stampers - Trees

Thought I'd enter this for Saturday Stampers this
week as the theme is 'Trees'
I've had this piece of stone for such a long
time and didn't really know what to do with
it. I recently bought a small tree stamp and
thought it would be perfect on this, so with the
help of super glue and a lot of swearing lol
here's the end result :o)
Apologies for the pics again, really hope to get
a new camera this week :o/
alice k... in answer to your question the stone's got
a pretty flat surface and I stamped the trees using
Versa Magic multi surfice chalk ink, then blasted
it with the heat gun for good measure.
If I was going to wear it, I'd probably give it thin
coat of varnish, just to make sure. :o)

Wednesday Stamper - Fish

Apologies for the photo quality, batteries exploded
in my camera so having to resort to my trusty mobile
which isn't the best :o/
This is my entry for Wednesday Stamper this week and
the theme is 'Fish'
The background was made using Majestic Blue H20's,
then some Perfect pearls sprinkled in globs randomly whilst
it was still wet. I then used prit around the edge of the tag
and sprinkled gold embossing powder over the top of it. It
blubbles when heated and I think it gives the illusion of being
underwater.. not too sure though lol
The fish stamp is of unknown origin but I covered it with Glossy
Accents and sprinked Perfect Pearls over the top in globs to give
the illusion of it being in water.
'Glob' seems to be my word of the day! lol
