Today Special Value!

I couldn't help myself honest - I found myself picking up the phone and ordering QVC's Todays Special Value. I only turned it on the other evening to watch Lord Tim and see what he was demonstrating. When I saw the new mini stamps included in the package I just knew they were destined to be purchased with all speed.

Anyway they have arrived and I have spent a very happy evening playing with the stamps. The small size is perfect for stamping direct onto ATCs and I love using them. This is one of the ATCs I have finished and I want to enter it into Mejens Design Team Challenge ATCs, Gingersnap Creations Challenge Jewel Colours and Rainbow Lady's Challenge Shabby Chic. The background is polished stone technique made on glossy card with alcohol inks, blending solution and gold metal fixative - it has a lovely gold ripple that unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo.


 

Thanks for looking and I'll be back with more over the weekend.
