Stamp Something ,,,,, Digi :-)

Hi all :-) we are back with a new theme over on the Stamp Something Challenge and as it’s the first Friday of the month its ,,,,

Something DIGI :-)

As always we have lots of sponsors for the Digi Challenges ) pop over to the challenge blog to see the whole list) and all the DT get to showcase a digi company. This week I was allocated Whimsie Doodles ,, fabulous digi’s to choose from and I chose this fab Scientist Guy image.

My DS Sean has just graduated from University with a degree in Chemistry and Biology ,, WOO HOO !!! WAY TO GO SEAN !!! YAY !! , can you tell how proud I am of him :-) Anyway ,,, he started work on Monday ,, and I made this for him ,, he will think I am daft and roll his eyes am sure !!!:-)

I coloured the image with Copics ,added glossy accents to the safety glasses and star dust stickles to the scary looking chemicals. The papers are basic Grey from the Manila paper pack. I used a EK Success border punch and inked all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. I used some TH Ruler Ribbon and stamped DANGER onto a piece of paper from the same pack. I didn’t have time to finish the inside ( will have to do that today) but inside it will say ,,,, SCIENTIST AT WORK Smile oohh ,,, this will mean he will be independant and there might be a few extra euro’s spare to spend on crafty bits !! Smile

HOLIDAYS ,, any holiday is OK ,, can even be Chrristmas ! :-)

We are sponsored by Karen’s Doodles so some fab digi images on offer this week.

I decided to make a Passport Holder for Amy ,,, don’t think she will use it but I had fun making it :-) I started with a piece of Grungepaper and inked it with Barn door distress ink, I then run it through my big shot using a Tim Holtz Burlap folder and then sprayed it well with Pearl Glimmer mist. When it was dry I stamped various TH stamps with black ink which you can barely see now !! I stamped a Unity Postcard onto Sticky Back Canvas and inked it all with Vintage Photo ink. The Eiffel tower is from a Penny Black clear set and the Wish you were here is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set. I made a canvas ticket using a Tim Holtz ticket die and stamps from the Odds and Ends 101 set and added a flower made using a TH Tattered Florals flower die and a Graphic 45 chipboard button, I sewed the edges and added eyelets to the corners.

If Amy knew I was posting this photo she would go mad !! She was 8 years old here ,, awww Smile
