WOW Wednesday Already

Goodness me this week is flying
i have been so busy i think i will meet myself coming back lol 
sorry for late post
it’s that sweet penguin again bouncing in to say HI!!!
from new Nigel May  stamps
this time coloured in with distressing pens and ink pads from Tim Holts
i really have had fun with this little fellow  wanted to try out the distressing pens
im quite pleased with how he turned out
that is the beauty of rubber stamping you have so much choice what medium you can used
i stamped him onto water colour paper
I used the sentiment stamp to make a backing paper 
then used a snow flake stamp from my stash then distressed the edges matted and layered onto some core-dination card
with a few snow flake buttons and crystal gems
the pen and ink pad colours i used are
black soot- weathered wood- peeled paint- spiced marmalade
so do give it a try it’s great fun
have a great day

Peony in Spectrum Noirs

spoiling you today Crafters
thought i would share a digi i coloured in yesterday
the image is from justinklined  coloured in with my Spectrum Noir pens
and believe it or not i used only 6 colours for this… i normally have a pile of colours out
i do love my Spectrum Noir Pens
  im delighted how it turned out
  even coloured the ribbon with pens to match the image a bit of red mirri and some crystal gems
i have the same peony in my garden so went out and nicked a petal for perfect colour match lol
i do love these flowers they do drop there petals so soon after blooming such a shame as they are so pretty
here is my colour list if you would like to try a peony

a touch of gold

Good Morning Everyone
here is day 2 sneaky peep of Nigel May’s
Crafting into Christmas Stamps
such a pretty stamp with lots of detail
i decided to get out my embossing plate my powders and heat gun 
  white and gold card always seem very elegant to me at Christmas
this image fit the bill perfectly
the image heat embossed a treat…. i lost no detail at all…
  it is a very fine detailed image as you can see and trust me i didn’t think it would heat emboss well ...

my embossing ink pad is so dirty and old im surprised it works at all lol
the stamps are a deeply etched rubber so i really should have not been so surprised how well it turned out lol
the sentiment is also from the stamp plate
  matted and layered onto gold mirri and white centrua pearl card
thank you for popping by today
hugs linda xxx
PS…oh check out the Crafters Companion blog
im told there is a fabulous prize on offer  yet again
if you care to join in silly not to  you never know!
