My daughter Jane, has a birthday tomorrow. She was born at 11.30 pm 1966, New Year Eve's after 30 hours in labour, I wasn't too happy! World Cup year too .. it was all going on! But some stuff was slower than others! I have sent this card to her with all my love x Back tomorrow... more to share with you. Thanks for looking.
BTW.. we are getting ready 'to film' my You Tube debut! ... I'm growing me nails! Hubby has bought a directors chair and is practising shouting 'ACTION'! He's scaring the dogs ......... and the ferrets! Mmmmm.... I think he's getting a bit carried away but as the video camera is his... I'm sayin nuffink! Eileen xx
This lesson is the Distress Paints 'Eroded Metal' Technique. I'm really enjoying this class.
Get me.... I've nearly finished Day 1 !
I've used two dies for the bottles, Alterations Dies, Apothecary Bottles and Mini Apothecary Bottles.
I covered them in Versamark ink and UTEE then heated them with a heat gun (did all this three times in total) then popped them into my freezer for a few minutes before bending them so the UTEE cracked...good fun!
Thanks for stopping over to look today .
Back soon.. lots of crafty stash for Christmas and time to play... get in!!!!!
