Home Sweet Home at FSC

I am not here today,  I am off out to have an inky, painty, grungy time with the fabulous Andy Skinner. Can't wait to have a whole day learning new techniques and I am going to meet the fabulous Laura Liddell - As Happy As ....  We both have booked 5 days with Andy, one Sunday every month till March 13 at The Stamp Attic - 
I wonder who else will be there??????

My second post for today is for Fashionable Stamping Challenges and a theme of 'Home, Sweet, Home'. 
This got me thinking and the rest of the DT too and we brainstormed lots of ideas, so it would be great if you go take a look at their fabulous work.

I have made a hanging with lots of stamping and embellishing.

The background is done with layers of stamps, inks and Goosebumps, which was great fun to do. Colours used are coffee, rose madder, spun sugar, victorian velvet and walnut stain.

Each piece has been tied together with wire, embellished with lots of metal pieces painted with aged bronze patina paints and I added some vintage images.

I hope to pop round and catch up with everyone after dinner tonight and then I have got to get myself packing as we are off for a holiday on Thursday to Lanzarote. Just hope we will get some sun.

Take care.

Hello Brenda.
As usual you have created something wonderful, I am a little envious of your classes with Andy; not that I know him but it all sounds very inky and messy and I would love it!!!!
Have a super break in Lanzarote.
