Pop over to Hels if you'd like to join in with a challenge with very few specifics - in fact you can make anything you like so long as you include some stamping. The theme for Sunday Stampers this week is Whiskey In The Jar; so you can include Whiskey or Jar somehow, and in fact Hels has stretched this to include bottles. The only thing I had to fit were some bottles on acetate from Artchix (they have some lovely stuff) I was making a card for my granddaughter last night and found these butterflies so hit on the idea of having them coming out of the bottle. I coloured them with craftynotions Jaffalicious colour spray; though they do look rather gold here due to the shimmer; which I also used on some corrugated cardboard along with Lime Lustre. The only stamping I've done is using Tim's flourish from his Reindeer Flight set onto transparent tape (think it's by Sellotape).
Ooh am off to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC on Sunday ;-) It's not all about quilts, though they do have many many wonderful works of art on display, it's really about surface decoration on fabric. So if you're interested in fabriccy/textiley stuff it is so worth a visit; lots of fabby products to buy or just look at and feel plus demos and workshops, though the workshops get booked up quickly :-)
