Edited 16th Oct 2008 - The resist was done by stamping in versamark, clear embossing and then sponging the red ink over after - hope that helps Tracy.
I was on the floor, picking up lego, playmobil - that sort of thing, in the girls room when i spotted a length of black thread poking out from under the dolls basket - I pulled it and instantly discovered two things I didn't know before - 1) spiders legs pop off if you pull too hard, and 2) I will push a one and a half year old out of the way in order to escape from large spindly spiders.
Right now I'm calming down with a cup of tea and posting a few cards.
I so love the leaf stamp in PTI First Fruits set - I think it qualifies as one of my all time favourite stamps. I made some background paper with it using what is apparently called the rock and roll technique. Added a sentiment, some ribbon, pure poppy card base (all PTI) and pouff!! All done.
The second card is the beginning of my Christmas production line this year - In a small, totally inadequate way i'm attempting to bring home the bacon this year (that's what I say when I'm asked but really, lets face it, it's all going straight back onto PTI goodies!!). Anyhow - I wanted to start with some simple easy to make cards that I can sell as wee sets etc.
Inspired (who isn't) by Pinefeather I did some resist snowflakes - the third card is the same as the first just finished differently - I think they're fairly self explanatory and I need stronger tea, but any questions just email me.
Oh aye, and I managed to use some bling - not a big fan but I'll let it go this time.
Apologies also for anyone who likes card recepies - I always for get to list these but I'm going to make a big effort to improve on that score.
Hope they tickle.
