I embellished it with hand-stencilled designs, using white Conte crayon. I also made some embellishments with hand-cut lino stamps. They all came out pretty well.
I'm pleased with this one - another for my "Me" album, which has about 4 pages now... Time I actually put them in an album together, I think!
It was a good afternoon to be in my studio. This was the weather outside (after a morning of bright sunshine, when I was stuck indoors!) -
Yes, that is a small flood you can see on the road!
Luckily it cleared up after a couple of hours and the sun came out again before bed-time!
While I was in my studio, watching the rain, I played with my new toys!! EEEEE.... I am excited to announce the arrival of....
A die-cutting/ embossing machine!
I got this today at a local scrapping shop called, Stamp Addicts. They are a great shop and stock their own ranges of rubber stamps and crafting materials, along with a good selection of other stamps, papers, embellishments, inks, paints, tools etc, etc... They have an online shop where you can get a lot of their stuff.
Anyway, they have had a special promotion during August and I got this today. I'm really happy about it, as I already had this -
I spent an hour or so experimenting.
The Cuttlebug included this little set of embossing dies, which I had fun trying out. As you can see, they produce a really nice, crisp imprint. I did another on a thinner paper though, which didn't come out well; so obviously a good quality paper is best.
