I got some aluminium twist chain for sale if anyone is interested. The colour is antique white, but it does look silver. It can easily take alcohol inks due to its light colour. The size of the links are 1mm x 6mm x 3.6mm.
I'm selling 10 metres for £7.50 including postage.
If you are interested in buying any, leave me a message and I'll send you my email addy for you to send me your address.
Payment preferred by bank transfer or paypal if you are willing to send as a gift. If you want to risk cash through the post, then that's up to you!!!!
Thanks for looking xxxx
Fabric and or fibre is this weeks JFF theme. I decided to use both. The background is a piece of muslin which has been stamped with acrylic paint. I heat transferred an image onto another piece of muslin which I frayed around all four edges. I used a large zig-zag stitch to attach the thick piece of wool down the right hand side. I unravelled a dyed silk carrier rod and using free motion sewing, attached it and added a piece of ribbon across the middle. I left the threads so I could attach the button. I stamped the word dream and added gems. Down the left hand side I added a piece of deep green silk organza, once it was attached I blasted it with the heat gun. Finally I added a piece of lime green ribbon to hang.

I needed a couple of anniversary cards, so I used up a few bits and bobs and produced these two. One is for Martin's sister and the other a friends mum and dad.

This months twinchies theme on UKStampers is butterflies. As most of you know, I only have the one butterfly stamp, so I've had to use it a few times here!!! The first image is stamped onto a really thick vellum, I cut it out and just stuck it down the middle so the wings are free. The 3 multi-coloured ones are adirondack inks spritzed with water to give a watercolour effect. The middle bottom is from a paperartsy stamp set and the bottom right is stamped in timber brown stazon.

The theme on this months UKStampers Atc swap is text backgrounds. I used distressed inks on mine and ironed the creases out. I stamped various other images onto white card, cut them out and 3d'd them onto the backgrounds.

This weeks theme over on JFF is metal. I've taken a different approach with this one and used wire for my metal. I made this spider with a couple of wooden beads and bent pieces of wire to shape the legs and also gave him a body. I used a white paint pen for the eyes.

JFF this week is asking for corrugated. This base piece is around 10" x 10". I painted it with white, pistachio, black and brown eco friendly acrylic paint. Then I covered most of it up!!! I stamped various clock images onto card with distress stains and used distress inks to colour them. I ran the glassine paper through the big shot using the TH pocket watches texture fade and coloured it with distress stains. Stamped the saying and ripped it out of the card, coloured it and mounted it with silicone glue. The clock centres are brads and spinners. Added a piece of string to hang.

This weeks JFF is all about plastic and/or acrylic. I chose to fuse black and white strips of plastic carrier bags together to create the background as above.
I embossed the umbrella man onto a white piece of card, swooshed over it with black soot distress ink. Stamped the saying and die cut with a spellbinders label die. Cut a small cog with the movers and shapers die in silver card. Attached all to the plastics background with silicone glue and mounted the whole lot onto a piece of black card and added a piece of black hemp to hang.
