All right, I admit it - I haven't contributed a link to Hels Sheridan's blog for a while. I've visited every week; Sunday Stampers was one of the first blogs that got me joining in with challenges, and there was a time when I rarely missed a week. However - as I joined in more and more challenges, and then began contributing to a DT or two, it got harder and harder to keep up with everything, and what had to give was the weekly challenges. (It takes me a week to think of an idea!) Nevertheless, I still follow Hels's blog and was lucky enough to get to one of her workshops recently. So - as it's the 300th edition of Sunday Stampers, I've made a special effort and put into practice what I learned from Hels -
The stamps are from a number of sources - Indigoblu and the Artistic Stamper among others - I just went digging through my collection until I found some I liked. I used Timber Brown Staz-On ink onto tissue (this time it was the Kleeex kind, not the the crunchy kind I normally use) and beeswaxed it onto the painted canvas. Apart from at the workshop, this is the first time I've used beeswax in my Melt Pot.
I added a screw eye to the bottom of the smaller canvas and hung my little pendant from it (it's one I made using Pebeo Fantasy paints - I have a box full of them and hardly ever wear jewellery!)
I stuck the key (and the jewel) and the little dragonfly charm in place with Cosmic Shimmer glue. What else is there? Oh, yes, the roses are made from cold porcelain ( I'm still in love with it!)
So there we are. I hope you like it - and if you get a chance to attend a workshop run by Hels, just jump at it. You won't regret it.
