As I am still a bit worse for wear, & sore from my surgery
(bruising is all coming out now)
hopefully the pain is over (gallbladder removed)
I have had results from stomach biopsy's, there is no nasty bacteria lurking so,
good news all round & I'm on the mend.
So I have decided to combined the 2 challenges
as I can't sit crafting for long (I miss it so much)
Here's my entry.
how can you pick just one stamp of Tim's to be your favourite?
I have had to use top 3, my favs for this week,
(coz it dose seem to change every time I get new ones lol)
UMBRELLA MAN from life's possibilities clear stamps
SAYING from purely random set
& FLOURISH from shabby french set
distress ink I used are,
tattered rose, old paper, tea dye, fired brick.
I used coffee archival to stamp the saying
then coloured it in with pens.
umbrella man is stamped with coffee archival,
& heat embossed with clear powder on a separate piece of paper,
cut out & then stuck on with foam pads.
the flourish is stamped with fired brick
with heirloom gold perfect pearls over the top.
Idea-ology bits I used are,
a swivel clasp, a muse token & a pair of corners.
the ribbon & butterfly (part of an old bracelet)
are from my ever growing stash.
sorry about the blur on the photos,
(I'm still a bit shaky from the anaesthetic)
after 20 deleted shots & various locations
I was defeated & gave up lol.
Thats it from me today,
off for a lye down after linking this post up,
thanks for stopping by,
