It's the Stamp With Fun challenge and this week the challenge is based on a sketch by my blog bud, the awesomely talented Bev.
I have to just say that I was a bit late taking this pic and by the time I got round to doing it the light was really poor, so the colours don't show as nicely as they really are.
But anyway, here's my take on Bev's beautiful sketch.
The image is Stampasarus - I treated meself to one or three yesterday when I was in Creative Pastimes (Barb, if you are reading this, I hope you are better soon xxxx).
As per usual, I coloured it with the old PM bad boys and did the Glamour Dust thingie - you know how it is lol xxx
And the MSBP was used, not once, not twice but three times!!! It now has company - a rival perhaps - but more of that in a sec. The punched papers are PP and the stripey green and grey one is a 'Dawny P's been fiddling with Paint on the 'puter' one!!
The ribbon is from a past Raspberry Ribbons kit - this pic does not do it justice cos it is just so very pretty. The button was a randomer I found lurking furtively at the bottom of my button box.
I am not really a decoupage fan but I couldn't help adding some dimension to the the image, which you can hopefully see a bit better here.
Now tomorrow is Willow Sketchie time and I can tell you that it is a fabulous challenge, so don't forget to check it out.
In the meantime, here are a couple of them there sneakie peekies ....
Who's that lil pumpkin?
And what's that border punch?
Today, there was knock on the door and there was Mr Postie with 2 parcels for me. One was from a very wonderful pal of mine who will remain nameless (but she knows who she is and she knows how eternally grateful I am to her for the trouble she goes to xxxx), who sent me a box chock full of goodies all the way from the good ol' US of A. There were spools and spools of beautiful ribbons and so fab were they that I just had to use one of them for the challenge tomorrow.
So that was one parcel.
The other parcel came from the very lovely and wonderful Tracey at Dies To Die For and it contained something which nearly made me weep with joy!!! You can see a bit of it in the sneak peek pics and all I'll say for now is you better watch out MSBP in my punch drawer, cos you DO have a rival lol xxx
How very sad that I am now talking to it!!
But it has been giving me the run around off and on since Christmas - fickle thing, just cos I over-work it!!.
Right, I'm off to read a bit more of me book, but before I go, I just have to share this with you. I saw THIS on YouTube and it made me chuckle. And there's a bit of Kaiser Chiefs thrown in as well, so it's all good :)
Mind you, it would have been the best laxative I'd ever had if I'd actually been there.
But enjoy, and I'll see ya tomorrow xxxxx
