LIIU DT call and Featured Stampers

Hi All

Just a quickie to let you know that Let's Ink It Up have a DT call out at the moment. If you love your rubber/clear stamps then enter the current challenge and put DT beside your name. The themes for the challenges are very open and varied and there are no specific products that have to be used by the DT members. Go take a look and see what you think.
I also know there are a number of you blogging friends who use 'real' stamps who would be great as a featured stamper - click the the link here to see the current lady. This would be a fabulous opportunity if you are looking to increase traffic to your blog.
I hope you have had a good weekend. I got to do some gardening today and had intended to only do an hour or so, but came in 4 hours later. I know I am going to suffer tomorrow as I can feel the aches already. But the patio is already with pots cleared and in place to take the summer bedding. Can't wait.
Take care, enjoy your week ahead.

Resist practice piece

Welcome to a beautiful, bright and sunny morning here in Surrey, oh what a promise of a warm Spring and Summer to come      -         well we can dream can't we?

I haven't made a card or project for today but I have had a practice for my Stamp Man project for Friday coming. I found this tutorial - which is a resist technique using glossy card DIs and AIs.

I love the colours and the materials I used but the TH birdcage stamp didn't lend itself well to this technique. I will keep it in my 'Inspiration Journal' though as a reminder for a future project. What I did learn is, that next time I try it, I will use black or coloured distressing powder to make the image stand out more.

When I returned from Cyprus I received these fabulous ATCs from The Stamp man ATC swap. My thanks to Torreke, Carol (no blog available) and Anita. I just love them and can see how collecting ATCs from other people can also serve as a source of inspiration for future projects. Yay.




Have a great Sunday, I am going off to potter in the garden and later I will come and visit some of you. If I haven't got to you yet since I have been home, then many apologies but I will soon.
