ADDED WED 23RD: WOO! HOO! ANOTHER HAPPY DANCE … BECAUSE I WAS CHOSEN AS AN ‘ARTIST PICK’ OVER AT HAND STAMPED SENTIMENTS FOR THIS CARD. I AM SO THRILLED AND THANKFUL!
Hi there bloggies!
Well … after catching up on my bookwork this morning … I was determined to do some stamping. After all … it has been nearly 2 weeks since I have picked up a stamp. Feeling a little rusty … I went browsing for a challenge to get me inspired … and I found this one over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. The challenge was to use the Bargello Technique on your card. I was excited to find an idea popped into my head … straight away!
If you would like to learn this Bargello Technique … Splitcoaststampers has a fab tutorial. This would probably be a little more effective if I had cut the strips so they didn’t look like squares … but I am kinda tickled with the result. Yes! I have some of the new glimmer paper … my friend Madeline from INK4U! sent me some 4″ samples! How kind! Did you notice the RED rhinestone jewel on the star??? My stamping buddy, Jenny, gave us a super hint on Monday. You can colour the clear Rhinestone Jewels with permanent markers! How fabulous! 😀
So … Gav has just arrived home with a big pile of new patient requests … just when I thought I was on top of things! Now that I have picked up my stamps … though … I am keen to do some more! I wonder what will win??? Work … Stamps???? 😉 😀 Hugs xx
