This is the card on the desk, it looks a bit out of focus so I better try another one! The stamp is from Stampersaurus, I love this stamp and it seemed to me it should be dark, the lamps are on, there are stars and a lit candle in one window though I haven't seen it coloured like this! It took me a few hours to colour with Promarkers and Trias, then I die cut it with Spellbinders long deckled rectangles. I made the sentiment on the computer and cut a ribbon tag. Papers are Papermania, years old, and I added some fibres.
I have entered this card in the following challenges:
Creative Inspiration Paint - inspired by anything goes.
Some of you might not believe it but I had a good tidy up last night before taking this photo very late before I got to my bed!
You can see the card above, and a peeking kitty - work in progress, stamp from Crackerbox Palace, as well as some Unity Sheep, and the Alpha Challenge page which I will post seperately. Under the desk is visible, EEEEK!
View from the other end, and you can see Christmas images, well one of them by Penny Black, underneath you can't see I have Spyder Lyn and Dustin Pike images ready to go on cards. Yes I am trying to break the habit of a lifetime and get organised for Christmas! There are also some die cuts, I was playing with some new dies and made a fancy frame which I was considering putting peeking kitty into, but maybe it is a bit fancy for that!
In the background the tub of stash I am trying to sell is still there, I have taken a couple of bagfuls to the shop, and of course the minute I did someone asked if I had such and such. Well I retrieved one set of stamps from the shop, the other had sold. I saw an email Saturday when I logged on saying the shop was closed due to no volunteers, so I went over to open it up for a couple of hours. Not good to be closed on a Saturday afternoon. I didn't sell much, though there were lots of people coming in to look round, and later to shelter from the downpour. If I had seen the email earlier or had a phone call I could have got there at least an hour before I did.
The bench, eBosser surrounded by dies, and there are my Prismacolor pencils getting a long overdue airing!
This is an Itty Bitty stamp from Unity, the challenge for this week is to make something with a different Itty Bitty every day, however I only have one - can I do different versions do you think?
I stamped the image and sentiment onto black card with Stazon Cotton White, which is one of those weird pads that you get dry with a bottle of ink you put on the pad yourself. I added Prismacolour grass and a light blue shadow, or that is what it was supposed to be. DCWV paper. Die cut with Spellbinders.
Pancakes attempt 2, they are thinner. I used Doves Farm white bread flour which is made of rice among other things. I added some coconut milk too.Nom Nom.
This was a dish of quinoa, with samphire, passatta and Greek salad cheese. Maybe the passatta was a step too far.
Sooty and Alfie met two young Mini Schnauzers while out walking, they always love other Schnauzers! The new boys were called Mikey and Toby and were two years old.
This was Sooty when he got back to the car!
