Alter it

That's the theme for this week Lots todo challenge and also the Stampman who are doing a blog hop so join the fun :)
This is a mirror frame from Ikea which has been totally covered with wax stamped into with cookie cutters and alcohol inks .A no brainer says Suze .........I beg to differ but then I've not had the practice but want to play some more :)

Ally Pally Haul

Well what can I say I'm not adding up what I spent Photobucket
Zoe and I had a great time and met Cheryl who is also on the lots to do forum.
We were also the last out of the hall as they shut the doors behind us .

Tuesday Taggers

I was so pleased to be asked to do a guest spot in Tuesday Taggers and the theme is Diamonds .
I've made a diamond shape double tag as for many they are the start of a long and happy life together.
The background is done with dabbers and glue to get a slightly distressed look with Viva Terra on the edges and shaded with distress inks. The birds are Personal Impressions and the sentiment from a dump bin .
Hope you like my interputation

A book card for Tuesday Taggers

Taken the theme literally and made a card that looks like a book.
I've used textured card and stamp the back ground with versamark, dry embossed to give the look of a book and then matted and layer the title . A great card for a man and my entry for the Tuesday Taggers challenge
