Live your life

Hi everyone!

      Still focusing on my new goodies from Ally Pally here today! Alison and I shopped and shopped and had such a great time! As soon as we arrived we visited Andy Skinner and Mark Gould on the Decoart stand and well, we loved everything! Andy showed us the new Antiquing cream and was explaining about the products and before we knew it we had a bag full of the new Decoart Media Antiquing cream, crackle paste, Americana Decor paint and Liquid glass.

     Here is where I used the Antiquing cream - you are going to be seeing this a LOT on my work. They only had the white left on the Sunday that we were there, but I have plans to buy them all!

     Also I stopped by the Visible Image stand and managed to buy a few stamps. I bought Time after Time and Grunge Flourish I am such a fan of these stamps, they are fantastic!

     So sunny yellow....not a colour I use very often. My Scattered Straw DI is virtually unused.

 I got a tag and using Scattered Straw DI and a little Gathered Twigs I did some wrinkle free distress on the tag. Then I used the 'Shine' Memory Box stencil. I just used the Scattered Straw DI again for this as I wanted the effect to be quite subtle.

Then I used the 'Rings and Puddles' stencil and used Tumbled Glass DI for that.

 Then onto stamping. I used Gears, Clocks and the crackle from the Time after Time stamp set using Potting Soil Archival ink and randomly stamped the images around the tag.

I also included my standard favourite script stamp from Paperartsy.

The numbers stamp and the word 'Time' from the Visible Image set was stamped using Evergreen Bough DP

I cut the heart out from embossed card and covered it with Evergreen Bough DP and when dry applied some of the white Antiquing cream. When this was dry I wiped some of it away with a damp cloth and then blended some Walnut Stain DI around the edge of the heart.

A spritz of Polished Jade Dylusions spray (another buy from Ally Pally) 

  I stamped the quote onto card that had been covered with Wild Honey and Tumbled Glass DI.

An eyelet was placed at the top of the card, dabbed with embossing ink and sprinkled with a little Tea Dye Distress embossing powder to give a subtle rusty look and a piece of twine was added. I finished the tag by blending some Gathered Twigs DI around the edge of the tag...

Hope you like it! Thanks so much for visiting, hope you come back soon!
