Penny Black site this week was using something new, well, how could I resist - out came the Letraset airbrush again!
I love this little stamped image, it is perfect for quick cards as you hardly need to do any colouring. Papers are by Heidi Grace, the border punch is Recollections from Michaels and the spotty buttons are by Papermania. The sentiment stamp is Stampin Up - I popped a little punched heart (waste from the Martha Stewart heart border punch) to dot the letter i
I stamped the image, cut the circle out with a nestability die, then left the die in place whilst I airbrushed around the masked image, my fingernails, and a completed card I had foolishly left nearby. I will get the hang of it, but the results are worth a bit of uncontrolled ink where it shouldn't be :)
Packing was a bit of a marathon. I gaily chucked stuff into the case, then realised I was packing stuff in such a haphazard way that I would once again find myself without the right pair of shoes/trousers/top. So out it all came, I organised into little neat piles, discarded a few things.....there, that's better. Until I check the weather for LA, hmm, much warmer than I thought it would be. So out it all came, and I dug out some lightweight stuff. Then Diane (who you probably know as Capadia) emailed me. The convention centre is rather chilly apparently, they have the air up very high. So, off I go again, trying to match layers and discovering that half the stuff I spent ages looking for is hanging neatly in a closet in Florida................honestly, this went
on ALL day! I am only there for five days and the case weighs a ton, nothing new there then
Apparently there are huge storms going up the east coast - I am flying to New York (8 hours), a three hour stopover, then another 6 hours to LA. So I am quite expecting delays somewhere along the way
I'll pop here and post as soon as I can.
