Play time for me

Firstly like to welcome my newest followers.
 Yesterday I had a bit of a play day, not much else to do as rained all day... so I decided to follow Neil Walker's footsteps and cover the front of my journal.  Using a pack of Tando Creative Twinchies which are 2ins square, which I also cut down to !inch and 1 by 2 inches .   I got out some very old ink pads from Colour box, blended etc then stamped in Archival ink.  Images are from Lynn Perrella I have had for years, plus a couple from Graphicus now Chocolate Baroque.   Then it was practising the triple embossing, trying not to burn my fingers, plus I edged in Cosmic shimmer embossing as well.  Still have a couple of squares to do, but need to get some more to finish the front then on to the back.   Hope all you at there are having a great holiday, wishing you a Happy New Year.


  1. The cover looks great, it will look stunning when its finished, I am wanting to use this finish as well on one of my book type things. great stamps.
