Yet another week where it’s been “quite a week!” I can’t quite remember the last time when all was calm. For four days I have been delivering cookery training and am sporting a very interesting perfume which is a hybrid of “eau de biryani” and “eau de scone based pizza.” Next week it is our annual Big Cookathon and I shall be out and about cooking Speedy Chicken Biryani in some weird and wonderful locations. You can join in the fun AND win a cash prize, check out the details here. Without a word of a lie I can tell you that the recipe is super speedy, super easy and super tasty!
Anyway, although there has not been much time for crafting, actually there hasn’t been ANY time for crafting, I have managed to sneak in a little internet shopping of the crafting kind. I had a good excuse because over at Sunday Stampers Hels has asked us to use something new for this week’s challenge.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you, I really did manage to bag myself one (well two if truth be told!) of the new Stampotique stamps designed by Kate Crane. Hels’ Sunday Stampers challenge gave me the perfect excuse to try it out immediately! My project was inspired by Kate’s own inspiration for her new stamp designs and her memory of a story that had an angel captured in a jar.
This stamp is quite long so finding a suitable jar was tricky, but I managed. However, as if photographing anything in a jar wasn’t difficult enough, the length of the jar (roasted red peppers since you ask!) made it even more of a challenge. I promise I did my best!
I stamped and cut out the angel and then coloured her with Promarkers. Her wings and the little heart are glittered, but you can’t really see that in the picture.
Next I created a little angelic cloud from wisps of muslin, gold stars and some sparkly snow type stuff and placed the angel at the centre.
I decorated the lid with more wisps of muslin and gold stars plus some white organza rose trim and a Stampotique star.
A created a little label as a finishing touch.
Hope you have a very happy weekend and thanks for buzzing by.
