Shrink Plastic

So, at Stamp Club last night we did Shrink Plastic. I only ended up with this one piece cause I used Brilliance ink and it was taking forever to dry before I punched the holes. It never did dry actually, hence the smudge on the top layer!
But we all had fun, as usual, and this was the first time I tried using black shrink. Nice!!

May Stamp Club

So nice to be back at Stamp Club last night after missing a couple of months.
We've started doing cards for people's birthdays and there were three to make for May. Here are the ones I made, all using Lynne Perrella's fabulous stamps, now made by Stampington.
I bought Calligraphy Robe and Crimson Fan finally - after coveting them for years - when I visited Blade Rubber in London recently for the first time....woooo, what a great shop, stuck full of classy wood-mounted red rubber!

I'm back!

Here I am again after a rather long break from doing anything creative. It's going to take me a while to get back inot the swing of things but here are a couple of quick cards I made yesterday - two quite different styles.

For the top card I used Lynne Perella's Botanica stamp, now made by Stampington and additional stamps by Kelly Panacci (for Sandylion), Hero Arts and Paper Artsy. The paper is from a mat stack by DCWV. I made the background to Botanica brayering dye inks over clear E.P. then spraying with Glimmer Mists on top.

The papers for the other card are from a collage pack by Paper Reflections (excluding the Audrey Hepburn image) and the word stamp is by Paper Artsy. Embellished with Diamante gems and silver glitter glue on her head-dress. The Star punch was bought in Tesco!
