Black with the Sunday Stamper


This fabulous creation was all due to a fantastic workshop I attended run by my friend Hels at The Stamp Attic. We had such a good time and what a great make to take away with us. The Stamp Attic are running some great workshops at the moment so why not take a look.  This one was called Rosy Heart Art.
We were all given some metal sheets to work with and shown how to do that beautiful rose. I was so pleased with mine as the colours were just glorious. Navy blue metal rubbed away to show silver underneath. It was a lush colour combination. To get the colour to rub away we applied black Stazon and then just rubbed. Most of the elements were softened in colour by using this technique., black Stazon and elbow power.

It doesn't show up to well but these dinky bottles are so cute. I decided not to fill mine with beads and ink but took it home to add Bermuda pink sand. It really is pink but the photo does not do it justice. Needless to say the pink sand is quite a heart wrench for me as this is where my mother was brought up and returned there to re make it her home when she retired. I have many memories and adventures from time spent in Bermuda from my teenage years and beyond.
