Late Arrival!

SSS11403 Not often I name the stuff I make ... but I did name this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Design Team Piece! "Late arrival" kind of fits ... don't ya think?

This week's theme is stars and I have adopted a belt and braces approach! Not only have I stamped stars ... Lord Tim of Holtz stars to be precise ... you know Tim ... the man that can traverse rainbows one handed while collecting all the pots of gold at the bottom with just a bauble and a Charm clip! Talking of which ... I am rather pleased with how me charm clips turned out!SSS1403

Anyways ... back to the stars ... some stamped ... some THE Wendy Vecchi Art Parts and Charlie Chaplin ... you know ... like the silent movie star :0)

Now ... the paper ... not often I use paper these days ... but this is the delicious paper that we saw when we went to CHA! Curtain Call by  Graphic 45 ... I adore it! I even only used one ink pad ... I mean ... me ... and one ink pad ... whatever next! Actually ... the second I finished typing that ... I realised ... that was a lie ... I meant one Distress Ink pad ... I obviously used a jet black archival ink on those fabulous chappies ... and a coffee archival ink SSS21403on the stars!

Righty-ho ... it is 3.30am ... I am rather late for bed ... but before I go ... don't forget to enter the challenge this week ... Everyone must have a star of one sort or another and Simon Says Stamp are giving away another $50 shopping spree ... you gotta be in it to win it!

Laters!

You have a real talent for making quirky fellas look rather dandy! Can you do the same with real life chaps...? Great piece - just so cohesive and easy on the eye. A beauty. Love it! And paper - go on indulge - feeling tempted too. Hope you got some sleep. I am thinking of starting a campaign for a 8 day week with a 4 day weekend.
