I'm back

After suffering the indignities of working full time on a rotating shift pattern life is back to normal and I'm back, yay I've missed crafting something wicked.

Here's a few made this month.

Stampinup inks & sentiment, heartfelt creations leaf stamps & dies with Altenew stamps which were free with a uk craft mag.

Sheena Douglas stamp coloured with red & blue zigclean color pens blended on strathmore watercolour paper before being fussycut & mounted on white card.  Raspberry distress ink.

This one is a joke that got out of hand. One of our best friends turned 60 this week and he once had Ade moving around so that his shadow would shield Toms drink from the Caribbean sun... so when I saw a deckchair with umbrella drink holder it had to be done, then I had a problem wrapping it & the glasses & voddie.  Somehow a box became decking and I had the whole thing wrapped in cellophane at the florists with pretty blue dangly bows.  Tom wasn't impressed someone bought him flowers for his bday, until he looked at it with sober eyes the next day lol.  Stamp onthe card is an old Tilda champagne glass.  The rude sentiment is one I got a friend to arrange to be made for me.  It cause an awful lot of mirth when Tom finally revealed it.

A distressed background using Jofy stamp with a stampinup sentiment.

I know Tracey thinks that I only really do grungy but cas is my favourite really.  A simple woodware stamp coloured with zig clean color pens on colotech cardstock.  This card doesnt like even a mist of water but I managed just about before fussy cutting and mounting on more colotech.

A polkadoodles stamp set coloured with zigs, fussy cut and mounted over a background made with smooshing the same pens over a sheet of acetate and misting with water.
