Here we are at Friday again. I could swear the weeks go faster and faster. I do hope no one gets hit by a chunk of Satellite today. We are all wearing hard hats just in case!!! With all the technology available to the scientists these days you would've thought they could give us more warning than just saying they WILL land somewhere wouldn't you?
It's time for a new challenge over at The Stampman and firstly we are thrilled that the very talented Siobhan has agreed to join the team. Her blog, Recovering Stampaholic is full of her beautiful work.
This challenge, the lovely Janet has asked us to think about PEARS OR PAIRS. She has done some interesting research into the meaning of Pears around the world and it's amazing what she's discovered. If you want to know more pop over to the Challenge blog and have a look.
After a good rummage through my stamps I couldn't find a pear image anywhere so I have gone for Pairs and a few of them to make up for my lack of the fruity kind.
My regular readers will know how much I'm in love with the Umbrella man so what better than to have two of him. My original idea was to put him on a pair of tags but this expanded into something a bit larger and I created a background for everything with distress inks and Tim Holtz stamps on this lovely textured paper.
The photo corners have been triple embossed with the same stamps and a pair of TH Sissix swirls added for good measure.
I used mainly Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade on one tag and umbrella man was then stamped with dusty concord and clear embossed and on the other the main colour is Stormy Sky. I added Starburst Stains to the tags to give them some sparkle but as always this doesn't show up too well on the photos.
I'm not going to bore you with all the finer points of what I did. I always think I waffle on too much and must bore you all to death, but if you want to know anything, please don't hesitate to shout.
The rest of the Design Team have created some wonderful Pear delights so don't forget to have a look and as always the Winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend at The Stampman so why not have a go.
Thanks for stopping by and mind those falling satellites!!!!
