Well no crafting for a week whilst away at camp. It was a success as everyone came home safe and sound ... if a little tired. Weather not bad considering but very little sleep! Hels Sheridan has chosen the theme of 'Dream' for her Sunday Stamper Challenge this week. I'm reminded of one of the little boys on camp who said that he couldn't get to sleep because he didn't have any 'dreams'. I thought this was so sad but don't worry - we gave him some of ours.
My entry this week is a bit 'dark & gothic'. The lady looks quite ghostly - no idea why I chose this but just went with the flow! I began by inking up a white tag with peeled paint, iced spruce & antique linen then splashed with water for the watermark effect then edged with walnut stain. Next I stamped a Crafty Individuals music score stamp over the tag with Versa Magic turquoise gem - it just gives a hint of colour. I then tore an aperture in some rough paper & stamped the angel (Crafty Individuals) through this then added the TH butterfly stamps. On the bottom of the tag I used Imagination Crafts black star sparkle medium through a Special Touch of Mica flower mask. I'm not a huge 'bling' person but this sparkle medium is lovely to work with. It takes about half an hour to dry. Next I printed out the Shakespeare quote & adhered to a TH fragment - had these for ages but first time I've used one! I added some black ribbon & a silver brad then place the fragment on top. Found some old chain & gem & key & added to the ribbon. Lastly I decided to remove some of the colour from the angel so dabbed a wet cloth over her - it makes her look paler & more ghostly.
It's our 'Race for Life' tomorrow in Colchester so I shall be donning my raincoat & trainers and braving the elements & no I will not be running - a bit of a jog & a walk will be more than enough for me! Take care everyone. Sx
