Challenge 21 Marvelous metalics

Hello everyone

Sorry about there not being a challenge last week, and it being at such short notice, but I was editing the blog on Wednesday last week, When i started getting chest pains that then radiated out and went down my left arm. After about 12 minutes I got a little worried and rang my sister, who told me to ring the doctor , who sent an ambulance and I spent 5 hours in A and E.


Fortunatly we have accertained that its not my heart, but I am still getting chest pains on and off so its being investigated, but I think you will agree an excellent excuse for not having the challenge last week LOL Especially as Susie also was very unwell as well.

So here is the long awaited challenge 21 Well my entries for it anyway.

The prize this week I am sure you will agree is a great set of stamps from Crafty Individuals. I loved using the tree set and can't wait to add the other stamps from the seasons set to them, I also just nipped to craft individuals to check my link and saw this

Stunning stamp another for my list, if you like it the link is here http://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/cgi-bin/shop_products.cgi?320

So here are my 2 examples
I love this large tree stamp and just know that I will use it over and over and over again. I created an inked background using sponges then stamped the tree and gold embossed it and added gold fleur de lys stickers and a gold miss you acrylic sentiment . I coloured the peel off borders in stripes of orange red green and yellow permanant markers which works very well. The paper is from Cosmo Crickets Flueriste papers which I really adore

This is a Christmas card. I inked the background with purple, lilac, very light blue and light blue ink. I then used the fill each day with joy stamp from the set and randomly stamped in dark blue and Dark purple on the background. I stamped the tree in white ink and embossed with snowflake embossing powder. I then used an embossing pen to add dots of snowflake embossing all over the background. I love the stamps as they are well etched and even using snowflake embossing powder which is quite thick you can still see all the detail.

Anyway thats me for this week
