...and the winner is.....plus Coloured Gloss Card atc's.......AND a canvas

It seems like there are quite a few of you out there who don't have a very pretty doormat and would like one of these instead, though a couple of you have said you'll use it as a journal cover.....whatever floats your boat! Using random.org the winners have been chosen for the giveaway from the last post.

The three names are.....(in no particular order) Lady Di, Sherry Goodloe and Katie Scarlett. I decided I might as well give away all 3 of them as I really don't need more than one. So the first of you to email me gets to choose which one you want. I do have your email addresses but what fun would that be if I just emailed you and said....
"you won" ....how boring!!! Hope you enjoy them and I hope you get the colour you want. ;-)





Tomorrow is the first of my Coloured Gloss Card technique atc classes and I've been busy today making extra samples and the raffle atc's for the 3 classes (dates up the top, to the right). It's surprising what colour you end up with when layering different colours of distress inks onto the gloss card, some are very unexpectedly beautiful, others not so (though you won't see any of THOSE here.....if in doubt, use Spiced Marmalade over the top and it fixes everything!!!) Because Stazon works so beautifully on gloss card, the stamping is what it's all about, besides the background colour of course!


"Servitude"...

"Eternal quest"...

"Will I love her"...


and a close-up of the wonderful black texture paste (again!) around the image of "Will I love her", which has then been rubbed with a little silver Rub'n'buff and mounted onto torn black metallic card...

"Sunshine and birdsong"...

"Collector"...


Two of my Uncles had their 60th birthday last weekend and for one of them I made an 8" x 10" canvas using a picture from the newspaper of his son taken when he was 8 years old. Paulie (my cousin) died tragically young when he was only in his 20's and it is still very hard for Paul (my uncle) to look at pictures of him....very emotional! I hoped that seeing Paulie's beaming smile in this canvas would show him in his true light, a fun-loving little boy who loved his skating and how cool to be in the newspaper when you're only 8! Yes, if you click on it it'll be bigger. I'm so glad I worked out how to do this, it used to really p*ss me off when it wouldn't work.
