Time for another BIA page

Using techniques again from the The Stamp Man DVD.

I spritzed the page with Moon Glow medieval gold Glitz Spritz & put to one side to dry, then taking a piece of white paper spritzed with polished copper & crunch up into ball, straight away uncrunch & allowed to dry, once dried I ink up the watch stamp with the ladies face with a black ink pad, (stamps used came from randomly stamping images of this stamp over the paper, taking a Versamark pad wiped it all over the paper follow with black embossing powder & heated. Taking a piece of brown coloured thin card I spritz this with the polished copper & allow to dry, then I inked up the watch stamp with a black ink pad & stamp over the polished copper, tearing the top & bottom I took a copper metallic pen & wipe across the torn parts. (the embellishments used are cork alphabets from The Fruit Pixie & the clock face is unknown)

Textured BIA page

This page was made a week or so ago after buying The Stamp Man's DVD on Moonglow. I've been asked why it's not up on my blog... It's because I can be so dame slow at times, lol... So here it is alone with a brief description of what I used & how I made it.

I started by colouring the page with peeled paint ink using a foam applicator, then taking a black ink pad I stamped the 2 images along with the word architecture, I then placed a piece of fusible webbing cut to the size of the page & heated it (if you want to have a go make sure you place something at the edges as it will shrink in to a sticky ball) while it's still hot I added copper embossing powder & heated it again. then when cooled I stamped all the other words using again a black ink pad. I finished off buy stamping the image of the window on to a piece of green card edged it using a clear ink pad an added gold embossing powder.

All stamps used came from The Artistic Stamper

& for the DVD go to

bubbly bubbles

Haven't done any paper crafting since my last post, just don't where the time has gone... well I do , on the garden, with summer on it's way I'm out doing the garden most days which leaves little time for crafting...:o( But happily I got to make some soap which is another craft passion I have. I made a lovely rose & baby power (that's the purply one) the other is sandalwood & amber musk which I added a slice of dried orange to before pouring on the soap & this one I think smells devine & is my favourite out of the 2
