Ink Yourself Silly!

Ha! Bet you were n't expecting to see me today ... were you?
Well ... as it happens ... this is my very Design Team piece for the Craft Barn.
The remit was all about inking yourself silly and I chose Archival and Stazon ... with a bit of Alcohol Inks thrown in for good measure. Oh what fun ... seems like ages since I played with Shrink Plastic.
If you want to see what ingredients I used to make it ... just click here and you will be magically transported to the Craft Barn Blog.
My favourite bit has to be the ickle biddy butterflies ... they are indeed ... Lord Tim of Holtz Movers and Shapers stamped onto the shrink and then ... erm ... shrunk :0) You know Tim ... the man that wrote every Motown classic ... ever ... while creating a scale model of Big Ben on the end of a tooth pick with just a spot of Dusty Concord Re-Inker and the handle of an Ink Blending Tool!
Christmas is officially over here ... decorations came down yesterday ... everything back to normal ... and looking very tidy I maight add ... I had my domestic Goddess hat on all day yesterday :0)
Right then ... I ought to get my butt into gear ... I have loads on the to do list and my non New Years Resolution is indeed to actually do it!
Have a good week people and for those of you that are returning to work today ...
Have a good one!

Hi Linda,
It's been a while since I came for a visit. I have been looking for you in Craft Stamper every month though. I had to let you know how beautiful your new project turned out. I would like to make one just like it!
Happy New Year!

Hello Linda and a Happy New Year to you, I just became a stalker (sorry I mean follower) of your blog, I love all these projects on your blog, I've just spent a good 5 minutes or more looking at them all, you are so clever! I love the Tim popping out with his crown on too, I'm guessing you are a fan too :o)
Well now I've found you I shall be popping by again, see you soon, hugs Teresa xx
