Wizard of Oz

Hello ;o)  How are you all?  I have been having a play with the gorgeous Wizard of Oz papers from Graphic 45 and the Magic of Oz stamps by Crafty Secrets.  I thought I would make something up using Studio 490 art parts so I sat down and started to mess around.  This is what I ended up with;

Sorry there are so many pictures but I was trying to fit all the little bits in ;o)  The tin man is made with craft metal and his heart is hanging on som silver chain.  The scarecrows face is on calico - I wanted to do him on hessian but I couldn't get the stamp clear enough! I used Tim Holtz corked vials with some alcohol inks in the represent the lion's courage and the scarecrow's brains.  I covered the spool art parts with the Graphic 45 papersand added a little yellow brick road ;o).  Dorothy's red shoes are ther along with the wicked witch's legs sticking out LOL.  I'm quite pleased with this as I had no idea what it was going to turn ou tlike so it is kinda cute !!
Anyway I will be back tomorrow with a little challenge for the chance to win a new Wild Rose Studio stamp and paper pad - that is if I can get the linky tool to work.
Back soon

Lots of new things coming ;o)

Hello all, well I seem to have been busy of late and also had a trip to the Stitches trade show at the NEC last week.  Well I am looking forward to getting the new Distress markers from Tim Holtz along with the new stamping card from Ranger.  I am also awaiting stock of the brilliant Dylusions range by Dyan Reavely including sprays, stamps and stencils - can't wait to play with all these things ;o)  I am also getting some embellishments along with the brilliant microbeads and adhesive sheets by Creative Expressions.  Later on I am also hoping to get some more Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 and the amazing blossom bucket embellies.
On their way too are some new stamps and papers by the fabulous Wild Rose Studio;

This is Bella and she is just too cute.  I thought that we might have a little competition to win a stamp and paper pad so watch this space as that will most likely start later this week.
Anyway back soon with piccies, inspiration and hopefully that little challenge ;o)
