More new goodies

Am I having fun with all these new goodies from the NEC and needless to say I have used one of the new stamps for this weeks Passion for Promarkers which has an open colour theme but with a sketch. I have also combined it with Everybody Art Challenges which would like to see "Distressing" this week.......yippee you hear me say, I so love getting a bit messy and Tuesday Taggers which has the theme "No Patterned Papers".

So my stamp...... code VA-1M-14 is from the Unmounted Stamp Company........ I have to confess the company is new to me but I am so glad I found them at the NEC as they have some absolutely wonderful images which stamp beautifully. I will certainly be visiting their on line store as I have my eye on some more which they had run out of on Sunday, no surprise really.

I have stamped my image with versafine sepia, embossed with detail clear, coloured with Promarkers then cut the mats with Nesties through the Bug. The background has been created by stamping JudiKins 6762I repeatedly with vesamark and embossing, again with detail clear. I then coloured and distressed with Tim Holtz Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade. The sentiment is a section of Penny Black 2695J. The swirls were cut with Cricut Home Accents and stippled with Adirondack Acrylic Dabbers Gold and Copper. I made the roses with some copy paper, glittering the edges with iridescent embossing powder.

Hi Brenda

I am loving seeing all your new goodies appear and thinking back to the stands we bought them from (and the conversations they sparked off).

Of course your purchases were much more sensible than mine LOL!!! If I remember correctly I bought "Happy Kissmas" from this stand.

You have used this image beautifully. I am well impressed.

Love Jules xx

p.s. You did pull a bit of a face when I told you about what I have been doing with my distress pads. But I wasn't surprised!! I knew I must be missing what I should really be doing with them LOL!! Don't worry - it wasn't a bad face - it made me laugh and then you laughed too. Don't know if you can remember us laughing at all LOL!!! Oh what a happy day it was. xx
