Friday 10th September 2010

Another Friday, on the brink of another weekend and oh boy am I looking forward to that!! lolxx

Over at SCD this week we are continuing with the ARCHES theme, these can be any size and shape so lots of variation available there! Its Ang's turn to choose the theme this week and she has chosen The 1950's...

Here's my effort:-

1950's hey...um kitch or elegant?? or what is there in the stamp drawer ( I only have one you know!! Suzy I can hear youuuuuuu!!!!! rofl) anyway I decided to go for elegant and used this stamp from Stamps Happen - I then cut out a mask and inked using DI's over and then stamped a Cherry Pie crackle stamp over in distress ink......the little border at the bottom is from a set of prima stamps....the mask was then removed and the image coloured in using water colour pencils....a bit of stickles added a bit of bling and finshed off the piece - not sure how 1950's this is, but, its my arch!! lol

Pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the rest of the DT have come up with - there's some gorgeous pieces there - I really hope some of you will join us this week...xx

Hope you're all having a good week - have a great weekend

TFL xx
