and welcome to my craft room courtesy of Julie's masterpiece blog Stamping Ground where we all get together every wednesday to show each other what we are upto, in a crafty way.
This week I am continuing my playing with Dylusions sprays and have used the backgrounds I made to make a card.
All this mess to make just one card, I even spread out onto my other desks which aren't in the photo. I totally bow down to any crafter that can make something without making a mess. I do tidy up though before I start something else (well usually).
And here is the card that came from that carnage....

Also a close up so you can see the effect that these inks create
I have used a brayer to stamp a mirror image so I get to make a full face and in particular a left and right eye. The stamp is 'Diffusion' by Hampton Art, one of the first stamps that I ever bought and don't know why I haven't used it much before? I think the text stamp is from Crafty Individuals.
I struggled to comment on many of your wonderful creations last week, even though I did look at as much as I could. I will try harder this week.......
thanks for looking
