Everyone was supposed to make ATC's to swap, leaving one as a background only for us to stamp and embellish during the meeting. So instead of using the background she'd made, Sharon chose one of mine.
Next I spread out a wide variety of rubber stamps so everyone could choose a face. This one is from Invoke Arts. To that we added these fabulous little glasses and hats from Coffee Break Designs. The hat is "colored" with Viva Inka Gold in a shade of green. Think Rub N Buf, but far more fabulous. You just rub it on with your finger and then buff with a dry cloth. The sheen is glorious though the photo doesn't do it justice.
I'd also spilled out a few dozen tubes of Viva's Paper Pens and Pearl Pens and that's what Sharon used to add the dimensional dots to the hat band. Don't you just love it?
This one was by Michele, again using one of my backgrounds. Can you see where I stamped with a piece of Clearsnap's Magic Stamp? The face image is from Invoke Arts and already donned a hot but she chose to add one anyway. And don't you just love those little star glasses?
This month our project was to make "restructured paper", inspired by a recent issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine (look back to March/April). Michele had made more than one after seeing it then so everyone brought their craft sheets, scraps of paper, and we spent an hour getting really messy and having lots of fun with it.
It's going to be interesting to see who cuts them up and puts them to use before next month's meeting. Including me, of course.
