Animal Spirit's and really clever storage


Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good Tuesday. I've got some really special shares today.

I had a delivery from Sue of Animal Spirit stamps today with some of her new artwork which is just beautiful. I have only managed one make so far using the Crane stamp and as I told Sue, the moment I set eyes on the bird in flight I knew there had to be a brayered sun. I coloured it exactly the same way as previous samples using Copics and took my colour inspiration from the orange sky. You can buy the stamps direct from Animal Spirits here or in the UK from Sir Stampalot.

And this lovely storage carousel is also from Sir Stampalot, the first delivery last week sold out.........lucky me got one of those...........but more are expected in the next couple of days, so if you like the look of it get your name down quickly because I am sure they will walk again.

It sits on an integral swivel base so spins round so you can easily grab whatever you need next. It measures just under a foot wide...............I use proper measurements..................and has various sized storage sections which go up in tiers. And...............the six little drawers come filled with goodies including ribbon, flowers, gems and so on, so a steal at £24, 95. I am already wondering how I managed without mine.

They are handy aren't they??!! I have something similar, however it's nowhere near as pretty as this one. Love your card, the brayered bg and bird in flight stamp is gorgeous :)

Paula said...

I like your proper measurements - somehow matting with .5cm doesn't quite gel & I love my imperial Scor-Pal. Every time I see one of these images I get a little thrill & this is a stunner with that brayered sun background. Your frame is so effective too.
