Happy Mother’s Day to those of you that live across the pond. Hope you are having a day of fun-filled luxury. I have tried to see if I could get away with another Mother’s Day in my household but nobody was buying it. However, I have made up for my crafting drought this week and played crafting for most of the day, including a spell with the melt pot. The results of my endeavours have left me with an incredibly early entry for this week’s Sunday Stampers:
Now I didn’t start off to create something for this week’s challenge but I realised that I was stamping and that I was using pink (this week’s theme), plus a little bit of Melt Pot – it would have been rude not to.
You’ll recognise this as another of my woodblocks. For a reason I cannot remember, I’d painted it brown. I’ve covered that up by using some Tim Holtz papers on each side. Once the glue was dry, I sanded the edges and then inked them with Forest Moss distress ink. I stamped the flowers directly on to the block (brave? foolish? – you choose!) and then paper pieced them with ones that I had stamped and coloured with Promarkers. I chose not to paper piece the bee, but added colour directly.
I added a coat of Mod Podge to seal everything. I can’t decide whether I want to add some words/a word to this so have left it as it is for now.
The finishing touch is the “button” which is actually made from UTEE that I poured into one of my Mod Podge moulds. I’ve rubbed it with some Enchanted Gold gilding wax.
That’s not the only thing that I made with the UTEE, but you’ll have to pop back on Tuesday and take a peek at my inchies to see what I did.
So, as there’s no possibility of anyone else doing it, I better do yet more ironing. I can’t bear to watch the closing game of the football season, I just hope Big Sam gives my team a big telling off afterwards!
Thanks for buzzing by.
