Sunday Stampers - Snowmen

Hi There

Thanks for stopping by

Today I managed to actually do Sunday Stampers on a Sunday ....there's a novel idea normally i just get it in in the nick of time!! I am also entering this into the panpastel UK challenge the link can be found here http://panpasteluk.blogspot.com/2011/11/panpastel-uk-challenge-9-frosty-and.html

So here is my Snowman .....can i just mention that i must have about one zillion stamps that i use everyday ..not ...and out of the zillion stamps i could not find a snowman so i had to revert to a mask!! Here is Tim Holtz's mask ......top tip do not get embossing powder underneath as said mask will no longer stick and will slide out of position causing you to use some bad language!!!!.
 I coloured the mask with the new set of Winter distress inks they are so fab fab fab and i am sorry but my camera work is not up to much as they look better in real life. Then a bit of scratching went on and a bit more stamping .....never managed to do your ghosting technique though Hels so sorry about that maybe next time.....a bit more titivating then that's me before i ruin it.

a little closer !

I have just bought my first journal .......oh my...what fun i have been having with that.....no need to hold back at all there and i have been trying everything out .....think i need a fundamentals class though so on the lookout for that ......does anyone else do any art journaling and do you know of any blogs that are of interest in this field ...... or any classes for that matter ?
Anyway enough from  me hope you like the tag .....see you again , take care......Mandy x
