Hi All

I didn't say why I was so long in updating my blog, well I was busy making marmalde I did 90 jars in all but think I'll do another 10 to make it a round 100 :) .

Also I had a metal atc swap to do, I did 2 before I went on a work shop so the 3rd one was done properly lol with all the right tools but I had a good idea how to do it as I had seen the tools used on create and craft a while back, but it's amazing how you can make do with what you've got.

The green one I did at the class and it's on green foil and sanded. the middle one I used a stencil and a fiskars embossing plate coloured it with sharpies' and stuck punched foil butterflies on, and last but not least I painted the foil with acrylic dabber put it through the wizard in an embossing folder then sanded it the frame for the clock is also done on the wizard with a peel off butterfly stuck onto acitate coloured and cut out. I've got the bug now and did another which I'm really pleased with I decided not to add any colour .
Hope you like :)
