Just a quick post today as I have had a really busy weekend and need to chill out on the sofa this evening, but first I had to do a post to show off my new purchases. I went to a huge craft show yesterday about 10 miles from where I live, I visit the show every year but often come back disappointed as the new products from CHA haven't quite reach the UK! This year I was so excited to find Distress Markers, according to the stall holder they only arrived in the UK on Friday and she had only packed them in her car at the last minute!! Well I had to buy some, I was quite restrained and only got 6 to start with, I didn't want to purchase a lot until I had tried them out just in case I didn't like them. I can honestly say the fabulous Tim Holtz has done it again and I will definitely be buying more.
This was my first stamp with them, I used my Hero Arts Silhouette Corner and used the direct to stamp technique, the image was so soft and pretty all I had to do then was highlight the flowers and leaves with the fine end of the pen. After stamping I distressed the card with Old Paper ink and just rubbed it all over (even over the stamped image), then I over stamped with Old Letter Writing.
The stamp show was fun and luckily I had birthday money to spend so I have lots of new goodies to play with.
Hope you have had a great weekend.
