My Mind's Eye

This card is made from patterned My Mind's Eye papers and plain (embossed with Cuttlebug) Core'dinations. The pad of papers was a free gift in a craft magazine recently. I think these are my new favourite papers.

Sugar in Distress

Thought I'd have a change and do some 'Sugar' distressing. I used a Gorjuss Girl girl and coloured her with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad. The background is created by 'wiping' the ink pads on a heatproof mat, spritzing with water and then 'smudging' the paper through it and heating to set it. The heart/swirl background stamp is from Hero Arts. Stamp from Funky Kits.

Here's the same stamp as used in the previous post, but a totally different look.

Distressed Face

Had a play this week with Tim Holtz products. Background heart/swirl stamp is a bargain find from Hero Arts. The other 2 stamps are from my bargain, bargain purchase from Topaz Crafts (see previous post). I added a rose and a cracked flower (cut from Grungeboard/Cuttlebug).

Here is a picture of the bargains I got at Topaz Crafts last week. A rough estimate is £130 worth of stuff for.....£10. The brads etc are from HOTP and, I think, were part of a Christmas TSV a while ago. I only wanted these bits so didn't buy the kit. Happy me!

Penny Black Bargain

I visited Topaz Crafts on Good Friday. They had a sale (more a give-away!). I got this stamp, and many others, for just £10. I will post a picture of my haul when I edit it. I've looked at this stamp so many times and almost paid full price. Glad I waited. Coloured with ProMarkers, added Stickles glitter and background papers are K & Co.
