Well, where did that weekend go? Sunday evening with three weeks' ironing done and nearly time to go to bed ready for work in the morning!
Now when I came home from Ally Pally, I did not take a photo of my buys and a few peeps have been asking me what I bought. So I thought I would show my buys as I use things. Don't feint, but I put everything away in their new homes, like a good girl. I even sorted my stamps out into alphabetical order on my twirly thing!! I know....don't feint now!
So, this photo shows four things I bought at Ally Pally. The stencil, the scraper and the texture paste and they are all sitting on my shiny new glass mat - a super large glass mat Brilliant purchase and a bargain too! A bit of a bind getting it home on the train but worth it! As for the stencil...who could resist a tree of butterflies?!!
Now on the following Sunday morning I decided to try the paste using a brass stencil that was still in its packet and was purchased at least 12 years ago, way before we ever had bees! I picked up a Snippet of dark Bazzill card that was hanging around on my desk and set to it.
So here is what I made using the stencil and paste. Now I know I need to buy some more fine glitters! The yellow background was made from a piece out of the Snippets box stamping it with cobalt Archival ink using a Penny Black stamp which I bought on that famous auction site!
Here you can see the lovely schparkle of the glitter. The white paste is pearlescent so has a sheen also. Woo hoo! Another string to my bow!!
Right then, off to the Snippets Playground for a hot chocolate, cwtch and bedtime story from Miss Di!
