Live The Life You've Imagined

Happy Monday, everyone and I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I also want to say a big hello to my new's always great to see new faces and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on my creations! Don't be shy..say hello, I can't wait to see your comments!!

And talking of my creations, here is today's share.
I don't think it could escape anyone's notice over the last couple of weeks, that the crafting guru and all round craft god, Tim Holtz was visiting the UK. And whilst, I didn't manage to attend any of his workshops *sigh* ...I was so inspired by his visit, that I thought it was time to break open my new set of stamps and see what I could come up with...I hope you like it!!
Now, anyone who visits this blog on a regular basis, will know how much I love to make paper flowers but over the weekend, I thought I'd try something a bit different, get out the Melt Pot and see what I could come up with...and I'm really quite chuffed with my first effort. Ta~dah...I present my enamelled tattered floral! lol
The background of the main stamped image is made using exactly the same technique, with the Big and Juicy inkpad, as I used on my last post but it shows how different it can look each time you do it. Even if you wanted to, you would never be able to achieve the same look twice! All the images are handstamped using various elements from all Tim's stamps and as a finishing touch I added the flourishes and die cut leaves!

I'd better be going, I'm currently working on the next batch of samples for the Clarity Shows on Create and Craft and if you get a chance to tune in, you must...there's some fabulous stamps available to buy!
Hope you all have a fab week and I'll be round to all your blogs to comment on your lovely cards, asap!
See you soon,
love Emma
