I found this BIG Woodware acrylic stamp at Olympia, and as I love big images, snapped it up. It doesn't show up very well on the photo, but I stamped the image twice, once onto white card, which I coloured in with Promarkers, and again onto vellum. I just cut the sundae dish out and stuck it on with vellum sticky dots. In real life it really does give the effect of frosted glass.
I added glossy accents to the cherry and the chocolate drop, and some glitter to the sprinkles.
The car saga of Los Angeles goes on - you remember the car we hired to do a days shopping? Spent the whole day hopelessly lost, got towed, spent a fortune to get the car back..........? Well yesterday I got a notification from Alamo who said they had provided details of the hire to ??? and that it would cost me $20 for their admin time. Then today, voila, the mysterious peeps who wanted my details caught up with me, LA parking violations bureau - would I kindly send $88 at once which was my fine. I naively thought that the vast sum paid to the tow company was the end of the matter. I kid you not, we could probably have purchased an old banger for the day for less money than this cost! You can't fight the bureaucrats of course, but it was galling to see the details written in black and white. Parking was allowed on that road until 3 :00 PM. Time of violation? 3: 03 PM.
They must have been sitting in their little tow truck over the road, sniggering as we left the car.....yeah, suckers, we got you!
See you tomorrow
