Tuesday Taggers Touchy Feely and WOW I'm EXCITED!

First off lets get to the nitty gritty - literally that is! Zoe's challenge at Tuesday Taggers is to create a little something with lots of texture and the DT have come up with some wonderful samples so you've just gotta go see!

A while ago Jill at The StampMan sent me home with some Style Stones and some Moonglow Embossing Powder to play with and, hard as it was, as a dutiful DT member, I set about and played
making this bracelet. I coated the style stones with the Spring Leaf and Hyacinth Blue Moonglow embossing powder and stamped into them with some Elusive Images stamps, rubbed on a little stickles, threaded them with some beads onto elastic and there you have it.

I will pop them into Jill at the shop so if you are in our neck of the woods and want a good look to see how they are made, pop in for a peek.



And I guess you want to know why I am excited - no I havn't won the lottery - yet - but nearly as good, I've had my first project published in The Craft Stamper, with some Chinese ATC's, so if you were wondering who the heck Michelle Marshall was - well it's Me............Pinch me someone!!
What with this and my first workshop at The StampMan on June 9th I think I'm in heaven!

I'm also excited cos it's the first time I've used my married name. I really must get to the bank etc and get that sorted!

Let me know what you think of the project, I havn't even seen it yet, my subscription always seems to be behind everyone else : (  and don't forget we want to see you being touchy feely too.

Happy Days
Michelle
