It looks as though I may be (almost) back to normal -
although the font looks a little different to usual.
Just to bore you a little more - I have got the Mozilla Firefox
up and working. For my previous post, I was still browsing on
Internet Explorer .... hmmm, we'll see how it goes now ....
Still there? Good, I'll show you something I've made...
This is a matchbox I altered for the February challenge
over on the Matchbox Monthly Flickr group.
Now my swap partner,
has received it, I can show it here.
The theme was Valentines - all things hearts, love and cupid.
I stated off by covering the matchbox with some self adhesive silver tape
I used Tim Holtz (doh, don't mention Tim Holtz - my credit card is still
hot from all the purchases I made on QVC's craft day on Tuesday!)
well, I used his Sizzix/Alterations die to cut the heart.
(I also embossed it for more detail)
.... I covered the card with silver tape and book text before
putting through the die cut machine.
Then used three colours of alcohol ink
This is one of my favourite colour combinations
Pink Sherbert - Cloudy Blue - Cool Peri
I used a piercing tool to etch a few feathery lines on the wings.
Now the fun part, finding little bits and pieces to fill the matchbox with!
and just for good measure, I filled a little glass bottle
with teeny weeny hearts too
For next month, the challenge is to alter a matchbox
to the theme of 'Shamrocks'!
"March will be all about the Shamrock, you must have a shamrock or shamrocks in or on the outside of the box. It can be the main theme it can be small it can be held in the hand of an image, but, you must have a shamrock."
Les, the owner of the Flickr group is looking for some new members,
so if you'd like to join in you have until 9th March
to sign up for the swap.
Thanks for staying with me .... I promise not to moan
any more .... well, maybe I won't promise, but you get my drift!
