Just a few bits and bobs

Hi there everyone.
Just thought I'd share a few bits and bobs as the project i'm working on at the moment is a bit big and not done yet!
I'm trying to get a few things finished that I began but never quite got finished....... what's that, you say? You too? Phew, thought it was just me for a moment.........
First up is this ATC

The background is Distress inks, the stamps are Tim Holtz, the "splat" is distress stain and the fob watch is from The Artistic Stamper which I stamped onto clear shrink plastic and shrank. Pretty simple but I love the combination of colours and the sentiment is something that I am trying to stay true to!

Then I made this card using a new stamp from The Stamp Man that is designed to work with your Nestabilities dies.

For me, this is a rather clean and simple card. I stamped some texture onto the blue with distress ink in walnut. The key stamp was stamped onto grey and also silver card, (painstakingly cut out as I do not have that die - yet) two more shrink plastic watches were added and the sentiment at the bottom says it all (it too is from The Artistic Stamper)
Little gems add sparkle around the edges too.

Well, i'd better be off; the postman was kind enough to deliver the latest issue of The Craft Stamper AND a wonderful envelope of new stamps which I need to mount onto foam before I can play! (Oh what a chore....NOT!) Time for a coffee and a browse through the mag first though, I think.
Bless you all.

I like both of these and the shrink plastic fob watches are great. I love playing around with shrink plastic. Dosen't always go the way I'd like but fun anyway. Your sentiments are so true too.

That pile of things that you haven't gotten round to yet I call my UFO pile.....Un-Finished Objects.

Every now and then, the inspiration that was missing when you first start the project, is sparked and you get to finish the creation. Mind you, it ususally turns out very different from what you first planned!

Love your work Neil. Stunning creations once again.
