Anyway when I had time I played with metals and acrylic paint, First of all made three ATC's using alluminium foil and the lovely stampotique stamps, Im loving these a lot, but may well be an acquired taste, dont think my mum would like one on her birthday card, LOL. These are available for trading, let me know if you are interested, might be a heartwrench as I really like these.
I also bought this cardboard box from HobbyCraft and decided to try and decorate it using metals, I am pleased with it, though would do some things differently if I had another go. Next effort will be covering a plywood hanging xmas tree, if it works might send these as cards to immediate family members, might be a bit hopeful though. Had ordered Tim Hotlz's reindeer and xmas tree sheet to make xmas cards this year, but its still not in stock where I ordered it from, so may have to do some rethinking.
Did sell about 30 xmas stamps on ebay last week, cheapskate that I am put them on at starting price of 50p to avoid listing fees, backfired as quite a few sold at 50p or just above, grrrrr. Never mind they were just gathering dust here, defn not a good time to sell the other stamps and things Ive got sitting here, they shall have to gather dust for a bit longer.
Back to work Monday, woo hoo. But I am now officially saving to go on the March 2010 Artsy Crafty weekend.
