Try it on Tuesday - Scraplings


Now this is a first for me and strictly speaking a second!  The DT were asked to do scrapling samples for the challenge at Try it on Tuesday this week, the first time I have ever produced one but after making the first I had a hunt through my bit boxes to find more offcuts to make another. It was lovely to use up the bits and really pleasing to work on such a small canvas. I can see I'll be making more of these!

The flower stamps are the Stampin Up, Just believe set which have been stamped and embossed in black as a resist, then I've just coloured the  background with Distress inks.  The little dangly bits are plastic tags which are in The Stampman sale, stamped with little sentiments from a Hero Arts mini stamp set (also in the sale).  I've a few of these stamps and they are great for adding sentiments that don't overpower a design.  

Hope you find time to go have a peek and maybe a play over at try it on tuesday this week. Give these little gems a try and I bet you get hooked!!

I hope your week is better than the weather

x Michelle

As always I'm pedalling like mad to keep up with Blogalnd so excuse me for being a week late, Michelle. Your scrapplings are gorgeous, I love the colours, they look like a sunset. It's amazing all the different sizes folks come up with to make things out of isn't it.
