Well, it's official, I have finally lost them. My marbles that is. For those kind folk who look at my simples blog, you will know I am making a banner for the room of stash that spells out my blog name and using the Sunday Stamper challenge for each piece of bunting. Well last week it was numbers and the second letter A of my name. So this week should have been an R right? However I glossy accented down another A so it is not in sequence, good job the pieces are threaded with a piece of string so that I can arrange them right!
To celebrate the fact that it is raining, hooray! my garden so needed it - and also because I do not have many men stamps I have taken one of my favourite Stampotique men and placed him with the raindrops that are a small accent stamp that I thought I would never use! I have two small men with umberellas that I stamped either side in black archival, coloured him in with my new distress pens (aren't they awesome?) and gave him an umberella that is flying out of his hand. The background was made with brown and blue distress inks, the A (oh dear) added and then cog wheels die cut in black card around the edge. I added glossy accent raindrops but they haven't shown up too well in the photo. Have to say it was a bit of a struggle to think of an idea for this week, which is a good thing about taking part in this challenge. Have a lovely evening one and all, I shall be snuggling down to enjoy the Apprentice later, I'm hooked on it!! xx
