Well, how blessed am I.......I had the new poinsettias, pine cones, beautiful fairies and the cheeky elves to play with. All stamps for the elves and fairies are front and back, so very versatile also with the matching dies YAY!! No more cutting out whoooooooooo!! so much easier that way and kind of makes you wanna do loads and loads cause it is so much easier and quicker. If you cut out loads to start with you will always have them for a quick make ;) In my samples I have used a mixture of distress inks and aquatints (yes I love my aquatints) for the backgrounds and colouring in. This new collection is a must as it does not matter what xmas stamps you already have in your crafty stash, these beauties will frame your work or add a cheeky little embellishment to compliment your make. Obviously, time is time and there is never enough of the damn thing so my samples have been done and sent, however, I feel constant urges to add to my collection especially doing a few more of the fairy for everyday cards etc.....I can see a gorgeous colourful one coming on with some of Sheena's Perfect Partners Victorian Flower collection - watch this space !!!
I altered this diary and thoroughly enjoyed. Using spray inks dylusions, fairy houses, lavinian stamps, , modge podge, gloss it came out like this. A good few hours tweeting and playing but, hey....I was pleased with it :)
I love Alice and this year was 100 years celebration. Sooooo, I made a mini book for her. Stamped images and all the usual mixed media products used. It's a favourite of mine and can't part from her. ;)
