Bank Holiday Monday

Hello and thank you for visiting my Blog today  
I hope you have had a good Bank Holiday Monday. 
I was in work at The Craft Shop at
Lady Green Garden Centre.
It was quite busy with people buying Haberdashery and wool this morning. 
This afternoon I decided I was going to demonstrate the
Michael Powell Urban Stamps, 
which are a docrafts product. 
I stamped with Memento Ink and painted them with
Tim Holtz Distress Markers.


Distress Pen colours used Bundled Sage and Barn Door

a mixture of Distress Pen colours

Background made with Crushed Olive and Chipped Sappire Distress inkI
Image coloured with a mixture of Distress Pen Colours

I am very pleased with the results I used the Distress Pens 
with a water brush and found them very easy to use and blend.

I hope you like what I have done with the stamps and pens.

Thank you for calling by Love Liz

WOYWW Box Clever

Hi I have not been to WOYWW or blogging for a few weeks, but just thought I would share a project with you that I made a few weeks ago.

If you have not been to my blog before, Welcome. If you are wondering what WOYWW is. If you have not already been to this blog then pop over to Julia’s stamping ground and see what everyone is talking about, and visit some fantastic peoples work from all around the world.

I got this box at an ATC meet and fund raiser last August.
At the time I did not know what I was going to use it for
or what I was going to do with it.

I hope you like what I did?

Using Tim Holtz tissue tape I covered the box.
I then coloured the box with a selection of Distress Inks
and then decorated it with stamped images which I think look great.

My distress inks look great in it too.


For a few weeks now I seem to have lost my MOJO.

So with this in mind, I thought instead of my Distress Inks
being hidden away in the box.
I decided to have a tidy up in my craft
space and make some storage for my ink pads
and distress stains.

Next to each ink pad is a piece of blending foam with the
name of the ink printed with my label maker.

The shelves are made from some Ikea CD racks I bought a while back.

So now I just need to find my Mojo and get back to crafting. So this is

what is on My work space this week ZILCH.

I do hope my MOJO will come back this week.

I will let you know next week.

Thank you all for popping by I hope you have a great week
