Monochromatic for the Stamp Man

The new challenge is live at The Stamp Man and for this fortnight Lisa has challenged us to use white and one other colour. Don't ask me how I settled on green, I have no idea, it just happened - so like me I know.

My TH stamps have come out again with DIs and a white gel pen. I also played with marbling using alcohol inks.

Tim Holtz stamps - fairytale frenzy, slight alterations
Distress Inks - shabby shutters, peeled paint, forest moss, bundled sage
Adirondack ink pad - lettuce
Alcohol inks - lettuce, meadow, bottle, willow
Inkssentials white opaque pen
Die TH elegant flourishes
Sakura glaze pen in green
Stickles - lime green

I hope you will pop over to the Stamp Man challenge blog and take a look at the fabulous inspiration from the team and hopefully enter the challenge. Don't forget Jill kindly donates a £10.00 voucher to the winner who is chosen by the DT and if you take a look at the on-line shop there is free P&P over £20.00. Such a good deal.

Well it's the end of my first full week back at work and it is so strange being a head again after four years doing other things. It is lovely to have my own school and to have a group of staff and children that you see every day, to build relationships and get to know well. It's very different to my last school where there were nearly 400 hundred pupils - here there are less than 90. Let's see how it goes next week.

Take care and have a good weekend..
