Colours!!!

Hello there, Welcome, today I have a card for the Sprinkle of Imagination challenge


The green is Cosmic Shimmer sprayed through a Crafter's Workshop mask and some purple Tattered Angel splashed and dripped then sentiment printed from the computer! Stamp from Stampers Anonymous!

Thank you for your insights into blogging, Google+ and Face Book, we all do it slightly differently it would seem but I am pleased that you explained and shared your preferences. :D

It's been a fabulous summer so far but we are inundated with crane flies, Mr Peplow hates these flying nightmares :) Myself it's the spiders that all seem determined to join us for the evening that upset my equilibrium! When we're sitting minding our own business, why do they have to run helter skelter across the floor only to disappear right under the sofa where I am sitting? What is that all about? LOL !!

Thanks for joining me here, have a great week folks :D  Gay xx

I have had some things going on at home that are difficult to deal with lately. I am working through my replies but it's taking me a long time to get to you all, Thank you so much for your patience. Hugs Gay xx

Tangled Enthusiasm all tied up!

I'm baaack!! LOL  Inspired today by the lovely, talented Sam who's Challenge it is  at the Stampotique Designers Blog  which goes like this.......

"One of the beauties of Stampotique stamps is even though there are 18 amazing artists designing our rubbery goodness and their images work so well together it's great to use a lot of stamps for one project, I often do.

So this week, I am challenging myself too and inviting you to use just one stamp . . . wondering off scratching head and rubbing chin . . . this is going to be SO hard to choose!!

So I got Tangled Enthusiasm out ( he is new to me :D ) and played.....


 The paint shimmers and changes colour in the sunshine, sometimes green and then a bright blue, sometimes light green and then gold, yum!
A while ago I made some Gelli plate backgrounds, a whole afternoon having fun and I was surprised how difficult it was to get it right! All afternoon I played and was only really pleased with this one the one you see behind Tangled I die cut some stars in acetate and used the positive and negative as masks and stencils.
The paints are Pebeo Studio acrylics, some are iridescent and some fluorescent I love the effect in the sunshine. To make the stars stand out I have used Copics and a Multiliner to give depth.
I'm looking forward to another session where I can make something I really like with the Gelli plate. Mastering it will be fun, wish me luck :D
And a big THANK YOU for visiting me here, I really do appreciate your comments :D Lately I have been posting on Facebook and trying to get my head around Google + woah, I feel a bit confused as to which I prefer, what about you? What have you chosen? I guess we are going to use more than one medium online and we will just reach different audiences! So many choices!
Have a happy week my friends :D Hugs Gay x
