Two Enjoyable Sessions

As soon as I saw Sheena with these little tins, I knew I had to have them... I bought 3 lots and have just finished these ones, as pressies... I am doing a couple more before I finally stop for the holiday. I used a variety of alcohol inks and made sure to wear some gloves, as it really is a bit messy!! YEY!!

I stamped with UMount stamps and used Moonglow twotone ep on them. The flowers and butterfly (because I got bored with the flowers!!) are on alcohol inked card, finished with diamond glaze to make them shiny and more robust. Pearlidoodles and a few gems have been used to finish off the patterns.

The second session this week was to make a card out of the gothic tag for a friend who lives over the road, who has a birthday on Friday. I hope he likes it. I just made a background in the same sort of style and colours, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole process, using those ubiquitous distress inks!!. It is full of texture and the hanging sun is quite a smiley touch!!

Thanks for looking and for commenting this year. It is coming up a year since I began this blog, and my life has taken many turns in that time. I have met so many lovely crafters and have appreciated each and every one of your visits and ideas. I notice I am almost on 10,000 so that will also be exciting!! Thanks SO MUCH for looking
