We have now completed the changeover to the new UK Stampers Forum. The gallery is in use and is great. Why not register for our email Newsletter due to start this week on the forum http://www.ukstampers.co.uk/ ?
It's quite a while since I joined in the UKStampers challenges, but thought that, as it's a new series, I'd try to join in.
So here is my first tag made to recipe 1:
I decided to incorporate the Leonardo stamp that I had for Christmas (I used it before here).
I chose a piece of beige cardstock that had a texture to it and brayered it using a couple of Ariondack rainbow ink pads. I then added a little distress tattered rose (I've discovered this needs to be re-inked or replaced), sanded it a bit and then stamped my image and heat embossed with black detail. I only had cream lace, so I brayered that a bit and then added strips of stickles gold - I wasn't really keen on adding the glitter, but it was in the recipe, so I thought I ought to!
I had to take the photo at an angle because otherwise the black embossed areas reflected the flashlight too much.
Here is my offering for this week - quick and easy as I am busy making houses :o)
The background is sponged Distress inks and Clarity ruler stamp. I bought the lady Imagepac stamp on ebay ages ago and gave her a lace skirt from a scrap. I coloured her shoes, top and hairpiece glittery red with Sakura pens and gave her a black Stickles belt.
Here is my entry for the Twelfth and final day. The main stamps are by Creative Expressions and the backgrounds are various Imagepac stamps I bought at shows. I used watercolour pencils to give vibrancy to the main character, and highlighted the sun with Jelly Roll glitter pens.
Just as I thought this was me done with the challenge I decided to bind all the pages into a book so I need to create a couple of cover pages - more on this to follow then!
