Afternoon lovely Bloggers. How's your weekend going? It's been wet and windy here both days so we haven't stirred very far which has been so nice for a change.
On Friday I was delighted to discover that I was the winner of Sheena Douglass' new stamp set of very adorable children and her new Spring WOW embossing powders so had a lovely two hours watching her demoing the stamps and powders on Create and Craft yesterday so that I know how to get the best out of them when they arrive.
I also had a lovely couple of hours with DD creating some tags for the Try It On Tuesday challenge which this week is a Tag For A Man.
I wanted to use my lovely Umbrella Man stamp which hasn't seen any ink yet so decided to stick to only using stamps on the same sheet, although I did have to use a swirl off another TH set. I limited my colour to Dusty Concord Distress ink for the main part of the tag and cut out some of the little tickets and stuck them on top before adding glossy accents. Umbrella man was stamped in black and clear embossed on a scrap of card and cut out and then added with some foam squares.
DD used the Nautical Stamps from The Stampman on top of an acrylic painted background. She stamped the boat, clear embossed it and coloured it with pencils before darkening the whole thing with a little bit of blue ink to take the whiteness away. She then added a Tim Holtz sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and I have to say how thrilled I was to read all your comments about the star photo from the last post. I was quite pleased with how it turned out, the camera did all the work, I just set it to the Starry Night setting, put it on a tripod, pointed it at where I thought the stars were, pressed the shutter and waited for it to do it's stuff. We had to wait until we got back inside and loaded the pictures onto the computer to see what we had got. This was the best of the bunch. It's definitely worth a try if you don't mind standing outside in the dark for awhile.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
