Seeing Red at The Stampman

Hello lovely crafters. I hope your week has gone well and you are winding down for the weekend. For once the forecast here in the UK sounds OK, cold and bright, my type of weather. We might get that walk in we've been promising ourselves since Christmas.

We have really enjoyed seeing all your favourite creations of 2011 over on The Stampman Challenge Blog. There are some amazing things but now it's time for the first challenge of 2012 and to start you off the very talented Vix has asked us to see red. Either lots or just a touch, it's up to you.

I have been organising my new stamps that Santa very kindly brought and so needed a new book to store them in so I decided to make the cover for my DT project.

It's the time of year when we start thinking about hearts so I decided to make a grungepaper heart that was inked with Red Brick Distress ink, run through the cuttlebug with a swirl folder and then sprayed with mica powder. The second heart was stamped and embossed with iridescent embossing powder.

The layers were stamped using various Aspects of Design and Tim Holtz stamps in Red Brick and archival ink and the writing was computer generated and then traced using my new light box. Yes Santa was very kind!!

The rest of the Team have created some gorgeous things so don't forget to pop over and check them all out. Jill is offering a £10 Voucher to spend in her online shop as always so lets see all your red creations.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to catch up with some blog hopping. For some reason Mr Blogger seems to have changed the Comments Box on some blogs and it's taken me two days to figure out how to access them, yes I know, but I've figured it out now so have some catching up to do.

Have a great Friday and enjoy the weekend whatever you are up too.

Hi Lisa, love your book cover - the heart is fab and I like the way you have produced the wording too. Caught some of Sheena's demos yesterday and I'm almost certain I heard you get a mention - I'm sure I recognised a canvas as your work too - congratulations :) Elizabeth x
