Just a quick post.....

on this wet and miserable Sunday morning. Sounds like a good excuse for staying in my craft room to me.

Anyhoo, just needed to post my entry for Tuesday Taggers, which this week asked us to use bursts of colour on our work. This ATC was quite simple to make, I just painted a cream card with the brightest colours in my box and after they had dried found a couple of 'starburst' type stamps (I think one is supposed to be a snowflake!) and clear heat embossed them over the coloured background. Covered with black paint and when dry removed the embossed bits with an iron to reveal the colours.I also distressed the rest of the black a bit with an emery board to reduce the constrast which was very stark. I have to admit my first attempt did not work that well, but it is a very quick and easy technique - the only thing that takes time is the drying!!



There is also sponsorship this week from the Craft Barn with a prize so join in, there's still time.

Wow, that rain is really driving against the windows, think I'm staying put lol.
