Welcome to swirly inky fun.

Saturday, 22 October 2011


Hels has set the challenge for sunday stamper as LEAVES. Well as summer has decided to desert us I am moving swiftly on to celebrate the first of the blingy sparkly seasons celebrations, namely Diwali.

Had the MOST fun with my letraset alcohol inks. In a weak moment I bought a shedload of rainbow shimmer card from c and c .WHY? - no idea. but at last have found a way to use it by covering it with alcohol ink.

This one was embossed with a marianne folder first.

Squished the excess ink off with some cellophane, so now have pretty cellophane into bargain.

cut fireworks with spellbinders, then stamped paperartsy flowers and leaves in black archival ink.

added 'om' symbol and Happy Diwali sentiment on safmat.Then cut out minaret shape.

On another piece, embossed with cuttlebug folder then swiped with black archival.

added this random bottle top I made in my soldering class [though strangely no soldering involved!] as the picture fit right in.

Hope you have a fabby weekend, I'm off to prepare for more sparkles in the form of 'Strictly come Dancing'. No, not doing a few stretches and putting on my ballgown,
-making pasta and lining up the G&T's, chocs and crisps! xxx
