BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

Awfully big art adventure L & R

For the challenge on Linda & Rosies BAA where the challenge was to create a thick wooden ATC... well I had no wood apart from some mounted wooden stamps and so.... into the microwave for a couple of seconds (please don't try this at home..LOL) to loosen the glue and off came the rubber image. just like that.

I gessoed the wood twice and then poured a few drops of ink onto a makeup pad and rubbed it into the gesso...cut out some images and adhered them to the block and with some of my fave stamps I added postal franks.
Chris took the top 2 pics and somehow we didnt get the reverse photographed b4 she left for home...what were we thinking about... so I must appologise at my attempt at using my camcorder on my laptop, the pic is really bad. The top pictures are the true colours.
The bathing beauty in a sitting pose had to have some celulite removed last night... I swear... you ask Chris..lol.

I have only had this laptop 2years this Christmas.. lol and never used the camera ...but really must get one of the DGC to show me how.... ROFPMSL.
My ATC block I have decided is a wooden postcard.
Thanks for looking and thanks for the challenge ladies.
Have a lovely weekend.
Chriss.

I just love the colour you used as the background Chriss... it is so beautifully vibrant and fits wonderfully with the images you used.
LOL at removing the cellulite...if only it were that easy to get rid of our own... and she felt no pain either :D

Your chunkie is wonderful Chriss! Love the color, makes me want to go to the beach :) I am feeling that much more than Christmas spirit at the moment! Aren't you clever unmounting your stamp and rescuing the wood....I may need a microwave afterall (I know! our son says we are positively medieval not having one LOL) I can just see you two all excited snapping pics and enjoying each others artful company and then realizing....ooops *ggg*

This is so, so pretty! Needless to say, I LOVE the background color, and how clever that you used a stamp block! I "unmounted" almost all my stamps years ago and don't even remember what I did with all that wood. I like the shape of this!

Very pretty...I can totally see this as something to accessorize the house with. Gorgeous!
