Well here I am on my hols but my wonderful DH has brought his magic internet connection with us, he is a total star, he is so fab he told me to treat myself to the gorgeous new gossmere stamp from Tiddly inks. I think she is just wonderful.
I have given her some bling treatment especially for the 'Bring on the bling' over on the Tiddly inks challenge blog.
For the background I printed out the gossmere digital paper, I love the way it matches her skull on a stick!!!!!! to bling it up I popped it through my creatopia so that the printed side was all glued then I tipped over some gorgeous fine irredescant snow glitter (that I bought for little mo to do his christmas cards with last year!!!! but it is gorgeous!!!) it was so hard to take a picture of!!!!
The frame around her is popped up a little on silicone and it is the sull frame cuttlebug embossing folder. I painstaikingly cut the middle piece out to make the frame and kept the middle piece for the sentiment inside the card!!! ( ooohhh so thrifty thinks lou!!!) but the frame was just so perfect for the card I had in mind.
Gossmere herself is couloured up with promarkers, I blended together burnt orange and honeycomb and I adore the effect I got with it. To add a little bling to her I spica'd up her hair, skull on a stick and tiara and added a bit of rhinestone bling to her tiara too. I put a bit of glossy accents over the top of the stick and tiara. Its a shame because they sparkle so pretty in real life but its so gloomy and wet here that I just can't get a good blingified piccy!!!!!!
Here's the inside with my 'use up the spare bit' idea!!!Despite the rain we have had a fantastic first day, the boys are happy to just be away somewhere different. We have been for a womble to norfolk lavender and they got their new football trading cards, which they have taken all day to open (7 packets each but they look through them like they re gold dust!!! its so cute!) and we all watched our nanny mcphee dvd (again!) but it has been such a relaxed day. Now it is bedtime the rain has stopped and the sun is starting to shine!!!!!!!!
