Hello lovely ladies would just like to thank you all for your well wishes and your patience, unfortunately I am still suffering from ” the deafness ” and ear pain and my spine is still giving me jip !!! I’m so fed up of being miserable and grumpy I do suspect that could have a lot to do with not being allowed to partake of the gin !!! Do forgive me for not getting round to you all but there are some of you out there that post everyday and although I love your blogs I’m struggling to comment on everything that you do !
Over at Addicted to CAS we had a fabulous response to our Masculine challenge and I know Sue has had her work cut out it choosing her winners, so many amazing entries, you really do make it difficult for us and WE LOVE IT !!!
This week my old ( very old ) blogging friend Florence of Florence and Freddie fame is our hostess for the next fortnight. I had the great pleasure of ” virtually ” meeting Flo when I first started blogging a couple of years ago and since then she has been the bain of my life ( no not the Suze Bain from Cant Stop Crafting ( inside blogger joke here sorry ) She has ridiculed me and my hobbies ( drinking ) on many an occasion and has even tried to steal my pets Bailey and Rosy !! but despite it all I forgive her as she is one talented and very funny lady and has really made a difference in my blogging life over the past few years , so thanks Florence and you can rest assured this is the last time I will ever be nice to you !!!
Here is what the lovely Florence has chosen as our code word for the next fortnight
Tons of scope here, could be cars, birds, butterflies birds or angels, anything with wings so come and see what this miserable so and so came up with
Sorry about the photo’s the weather here is rubbish and this is the best I could do !
Now this looks like a real simple card ….well it is CAS after all but it was a little time-consuming to say the least.
I made the frame and cameo myself by first of all making molds of both of them . I bought the original items from Hong Kong only to find both of them in a craft shop here in Thessaloniki !!!! Once the molds where dry I got out my Ranger melting pot and added white UTEE and a little blue To Dye For ink by Suze Weinberg, once melted I filled the mold and within a few minutes in had cooled and I just popped it out, it’s not by any means perfect and this is about my fifth attempt but the great thing about the melting pot is that if you’re not happy with the result you can just fling it back in the pot and melt it again, I can tell you a lot of flinging went on. Right onto the angel cameo, I used a new to me product called i clay which is similar to air dry fimo only it has much more elasticity . I once again filled the mold with this fun stuff and popped it out and left it to dry overnight.
The little cameo is perched upon this lovely die cut by Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. Sentiment courtesy of Inspired by Stamping and Stamped with SU Marina Mist ink.
I see that our sister blog at Addicted to Stamps and More is also looking for a CAS card this week, anything so long as its CAS so will be joining in there too
We do hope you can play along with us at ATCAS and do please pop over to see the fabulous inspirational pieces by the rest of the DT .
