April Inchies on UKS - Navy

I wanted to do something a bit different - my other months of inchies have become very samey - so I did these backgrounds with navy paint and PVA mix and tissue paper - it came out like the sea - Navy (Royal Navy) summed up ships and boats etc and I saw these LOVELY metal ships steering wheels on EBAY - so I sent off for them - and the outside edge I have embossed with seafoam white embossing powder - all in all very nautical - Navy colour, Sea and Ships. Not bad for an inch square. Tee Hee.

Sending them off tomorrow.

MY wonderful metal and embossing boards came

Ten second studio embossed metal background and melting pot key impression on this ATC

Coke can emb ellishment and transparency printed - image stamped and scanned and then printed.

Again image stamped and scanned and resized and printed onto a transparency - background was alcohol inked and the card rouged up and then alcohol inked again

Embellishment made with melting pot and cosmic shimmer powder used on top whilst hot - handmade background with alcohol inks and ordinary copy paper.

Ten second studio embossing again - nothing like Linda's on UKS creates, but it was enjoyable to do.

AND I played late afternoon - plus went out with Linda and bought a new corner rounder punch one of the big ones I've wanted for absolutely ages - so it's been an expensive weekend but enjoyable.

here are some more ATC's.

I could resist no longer

and decided to buy some of the fabby dabby embossing boards and more metal from here:

I have been so in AWE of Lindas stuff for such a long time - I just had to buy it and I know that I am going to be metal crafting and metal crafting and metal crafting with some melting pot stuff for the next few weeks - really getting into crafting all the time again.
