CCC Week 31...

Well I am feeling quite a bit better today, still limiting the amount
of bending and stretching that I am doing, it just feels so good to
not be in constant pain right now.

Anyway down to business, I felt so much better I was able to do
part of this piece yesterday and the second part today. If you want
all the details for the challenge head on over to Linda's blog.

I used the wonderful Wild Honey distress ink as the main colour
for this and then used some new stamps that I just got, they are
designed by Melody Ross for Unity Stamp co. I was also back to
using my favourite tissue tape and washi tapes, boy those tapes
are just addicting as they are so versatile. I am embarrassed to
say I have quite a collection of them now. I have not tried this

week's technique before but am very pleased with how it turned 
out. Sad that I didn't do last weeks but maybe when the challenge
ends I will go back and do it so that I have the complete set.

Glad you are starting to feel better! I hate icing myself too. I want to be warm when I hurt. I love this piece and isn't that color gorgoeus!

Marlene, I'm so glad you're feeling better, and hope you're back to 100% very soon. In spite of being in pain, you created a stunning work of art! I'm with you-- Wild Honey distress ink really IS wonderful, and it looks so rich and warm here, just perfect for the rusted enamel technique. The stamps you used are great!!!

You take it easy and be gentle with yourself. :-)
