WMS Pajama Party
There's a new challenge going on over at Waltzingmouse this month - a WMS pajama party. The party starts at midnight (UK time) and everyone is invited to join in, complete with PJ attire. Now I'd like to say that I'm sat here in my sexiest, silk negligee (make that flannelette pajamas) ready to take part. But alas, since I'm Down Under I'm in my daggy 'Mum' clothes and I've just taken the big kid to school!
There are three different challenges which give everyone the opportunity to use any new stamps they may have purchased during the recent new release. It just so happens that I did have a little bit of a splurge a couple of weeks ago so I've entered 2 of the challenges - the first is 'Tickle me Silly' where the theme is feathers:
I had an absolutely manic weekend so I have to say I was flagging a bit when I did this one. 2 kids parties in one day, followed by a 50th that evening so let's just say the mojo had disappeared somewhat. I bought the Funky Feathers set (after procrastinating terribly over whether to buy Fine or Funky!) and gold embossed two of the larger feathers, tying them together with some ribbon. I put some gold metal shim underneath the Fancy Square die cut to give it a hint of shine.
The next challenge is for In the Background. I also bought the gorgeous Crackle Backgrounder stamp which is absolutely huge. We were lucky enough to go to Canada earlier this year so I used it as the background to some photos I took whilst visiting Whistler:
Talk about using a lot of white embossing powder! I used the crackle background on some vellum first and used this as the base for my photos. I then used it on some contrasting blue bazzil. I had absolutely no Winter/snow themed embellishments so I used the snowflake stamp from Seasons of Love and added a few spots of bling. I also used the vintage heart from the same set and the 'Wonderful' sentiment is from Camellia.
Phew, I'm all waltzed out so I'm going to grab my morning coffee and have a nose at all the other projects on offer.
Thanks for stopping by!
