Hurrah, I am hoping that normal service has been resumed because, get me...I have been able to craft AND blog!! I know, pride comes before a fall and all that, so I doubt this will last long, but hey...I may as well brag whilst I have the chance!
So, on my desk this week are a couple of cards I am making, top left is my kitchen roll that I use for clean up and is dyed BRIGHT orange because I have just sprayed my August 365 journal background pages. I tend to keep these inked kitchen roll sheets as they make lovely backgrounds in their own right.
Also on my desk is the tape gun I won at the WOYWW crop (thanks to whoever donated/bought that....I have been using it TONS!) and just underneath it is my Sheena Gouglas fake leather experiment that didn't turn out well as I didn't have any spray and shine so used spray varnish! I ended up clear embossing over the top and I plan on die cutting it so it won't be wasted (us crafters HATE waste....I think we are really the best green crafters as we tend to upcycle and reuse so many items in our pursuit of crafting).
My "Man Bites Dog" cards spell out 'Crazy Mayor sues 340lb cop!!'....I am not sure I would call our mayor of Bristol crazy...but lets see what this weeks headines bring and I will pass judgement then!
These are a couple of the cards that I managed to make today. I used TH smudged stamping technique on the tags with some stickles glitter on the Vegas and some glossy accents on the cherries. I embossed some white card with the BINGO embossing folder and ran some red and black ink over the surface. I added some distressed mini playing cards to one and a casino token on the other.
So, if you fancy a legal snoop at desks across the globe then pop over to the lovely Julia's blog (link over on the right).
