More Than Words - Sunday Stampers

Hi, thanks or dropping by.  Today I managed to make a piece for Hels' Sunday Stampers on the day - instead of at the last minute like Friday!  I used some of my new Art Parts - pocket watches - that I bought for myself for my birthday today.  (Thanks Hels, Carmen & Lynne for the gorgeous cards BTW!)

The theme today is WORDS so I've incorporated a few.

I used a piece of paper from a Tim Paper Stack (this is the Kraft one, part of a dictionary definition) dulled down with a gesso wash, and a light coat of distress ink - I think I used antique linen. Did it this morning and can't remember.... must be an age thing!)   Used walnut stain distress stain on the pocket watch art part.

Stamped the face from It's Face Art in coffee archival and art from Art Inspiration  in black.  Stamped the smaller of the flowers from Live and Make Art on grungepaper and again on clearly for art. Fixed a button to the grungepaper, and a flower from the foliage idea-ology pack which I embossed with peeled paint distress powder to the CFA.  The back of the clearly for art flower is covered - it's meant to be splodgy - with viva gold inka-gold (which was going moldy, I must have used a dirty brush last time I used some....oops!)

I have had a very lazy day today, not been out - it is TOO HOT (that's definately an age thing!!) apart from trying to collect a cd of the photos I finally picked up yesterday of my last trip to Kew last weekend - it is a very long story and the CD isn't ready.... again.   Hopefully they will be available tomorrow and I may finally be able to share them with you tomorrow on the other blog... maybe!

I had no idea either Helen, so belated Happy Birthday.

This inability to be able to blog much means I am right out of the loop, but now I am here off to have a nose round.
