Sunday Stamper 207: Words.

Hi everyone. I have managed to get the next part of my Sunday Stamper banner done in time this week! As I am up to the letter C for craftroom in the spelling of my blog name I thought I would use words that start with that letter for this week.
Sunday Stamper: words

I have used the divine new spring distress colours for the background and then stamped the large C in seedless preserves before stamping and cutting it out of some patterned paper to create a shadow effect. Then I used all my C's and C words! I even found a little Cloud to add in. This is a very simple
piece of the banner but I love the colours. I did do last weeks challenge but too late to post, so here it is  as I am using the circle theme as the gap between Barbara's and Craftroom!
Sunday Stamper: circles
I used assorted acrylic dabbers over circled sequin waste to make the background. Then I used Claudine Hellmutt's 'Blooms' to make the large circles stamped with peacock feathers and seeldess preserve distress inks and then Wendy Veccis milk bottle stamp in fired brick distress in the centre. I scrunched them to give texture and then ended with some buttons to finish it off.

Not quite finished yet, here is something completely different! I have knitted myself a summer bag with some recycled sari silk ribbon.

It was fun to make and I am pleased that this is a complete recycled job as the lining is made from an old denim curtain, the strap and D rings were off a very cheap charity shop bag that had seen better days and the button was in my stash. The colours are very bright, and the denim lining is helping it to keep shape. Great fun to make, only took me a day start to finish. Well, enough of my rabbiting, I am off to sit in the garden with a cup of tea before the sky remembers there's a bank holiday coming and starts to cloud over. Have a lovely week, thanks for looking. x
