Soap making is something I also like to play around with from time to time. It's also the first blog that I've come across that's about making your own skincare.... With great tips if you want to have a go at making your own or if not she has a shop with yummy stuff that looks good enough to eat & that's sure to make fab gifts.
Back to card making
I've just finished off this card I've had hanging around for a bit just waiting for the right coloured card & a bit of nice ribbon to come along, I think I found it... well at least I hope I have, as it's to late to change cause it's well & truly stuck down.

I used the owl from the Wise Owl Themeplate by Elusive Images. I loved him when I first saw him in the Graphicus Gulid newsletter & wanted to do something fab when I got my hands on him & I feel I did that with this card.
If you're an avid Glenda fan & use her stamps you will no doubt have spotted I used one of the baubles to make mine.....fab stamps aren't they.

I did however attempt Friday night to making some quick tags to pop on the xmas pressies that I've brought, so I guess I could count that as crafting, lol.
Here is one of the cards made before the big craft flop. (I'd have popped the other up but camera battery just died on me)
Before I forget I'd like to say thank you to Phree for the award she's given me xxx. Will get that sorted out & displayed with pride on here.

I received my speedball a few weeks ago now & boy have I had some fun with it. I have to say that I've got on better with it than I did the Tim Holtz one....maybe it's because it's a nice 4" roller or because the rubber is softer??? who knows, anyway I made this fab book mark using the brayer & I'm so pleased with the way it turned out... I think I've gone & caught the brayer bug :o)

I have a small brayer I decided should get dirty at least once it it's life, I'd seen other works of art which had been made using a brayer & thought it time I joined in the fun. So on that I took down my Adirondack dye inks to choose the colours, but that's where it all started, with these 2 colours I didn't really choose. You see I picked out a red & orange just to see what they'd look like on a piece of scrap card & to test out my brayer techniques. I firstly stamped the word 'art' in black, I then wanted to see what the 2 colours would look like together over this word..... Wow that's gone well looks good at this stage, I then find myself sponging on black chalk ink around the edges
which start to really set of the stamped image.
Out then come more stamps with me looking for a nice swirly kind of stamp which I find, inked that up in black & stamped it around the edge finishing it of with a white soufflé pen. I then echo the swirly stamp on the black card by inking it up with Adirondack snow cap pigment ink.
I look at the finished card & see a halloweeny looking card looking back at me. It's only the colours that have given it that look, but I'm thinking this is just a bit spooky what with Halloween just around the corner & I didn't set out to make a card or any thing else for halloween....... or did I

Like to thank Phree for the Wilde Women award. I don't want to put it up yet as I can't think who to pass it on to. I've still got to think of peeps to send the last award on to & don't think it right me putting up all these awads with out doing the right thing by passing them on, as everyone else has done.
