Sunday Stamper 195: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

Oh have I ever had a lovely weekend! Yesterday I spent the day with Hels and seven other lovely girls at the Stamp Attic doing a fantabolosy workshop given by Hels on 'Ranger Techniques' and did we ever have a good time! Not only did I learn some new ideas but got lovely and inky and got to spend my pocket money in Wendy's wonderful shop! Hels put such a lot into the day and must have worked til the wee small hours doing all the prep! We ended up with a tag book of 15 different ways to use Ranger inks and pads - thankyou Hels!
It seemed only right to use one of the said techniques on todays challenge.sunday stamper: Diamonds
I used a black tag left over from yesterday and stamped paperbag studios diamonds in versamark resist and then dabbed pewter cosmic shimmer powder over, then sprayed with water to set. Do you remember going to the circus? It was usually at night when we got taken, and the flags would flutter and through the marquee you would just see lights dazzling through the dark, so I let the flash on my camera take up the silver of the background. Definately 'dazzling and delighting'! The ringmaster stamp is by Grahic 45 which I coloured with promarkers and mounted on pads to help him stand out.Then I cut a diamond out of honeycomb paper which seemed to me to represent the billowing tents. The flags I free cut from matching Graphich 45 paper and the sentiment was mounted on a coloured corrugated diamond.
So I have had another lovely day crafting, finished my tag Tuesday tag as well, which I shall post, well, on Tuesday! As for the H word, alak, another day has gone and I haven't fitted it in! I shall find a small space for it tomorrow, unless of course the craft room beckons!
Happy crafting peeps, hugs xx
