Craft Room, Oh How I Missed You!

OMG I have been itching to get back to my craftroom since Ally Pally and yesterday I finally managed it, Oh how happy was I, like a pig in S*@t I can tell ya lol
I played from first thing in the morning to late into the afternoon, and some of the evening too!
I had a couple of challenges I really wanted to take part in so I combined them
Grungy Monday 'Color Washes'
I sprayed the frame with red pepper, I also sprayed the roses on the art part dress form.
 The Stamp Man 'Embossing' 
I used vinny the vagabond to emboss some red pepper core'dinations card with the regal flourish folder.
Just coz the whole piece is kinda distressed and shabby!
I used the smallest rosette and some trinket pins for the wording.
And you an just about see the very faint crackle created using the lush new fresco paints
For some reason it didn't crack like it should but I'm thinking it's more operator issues then the paint lol, I definitely need more practice! And on that note I'm away to play some more xx
Stay Inky

Oh how deeelish. Love it. Love the blog too. I'm still in the process of evicting my dd from her log cabin playhouse that I can use as an inky haven- since she doesn't use it. Needless to say that suggestion is going down a treat!! -NOT! My house is being over run with crafty stuff since Im not so lucky to have a spare room for it. So I've not done anything for a lonnnng time craft wise. Rant over! Lol
Jeanette btw on twitter I'm netrix_

Girlfriend, you've made another masterpiece! Your sweet shadowbox deserves a place of honor in the Crafters' Museum. The Color Wash is lovely, and the way you used the Memo Pins and rosette is just brilliant. And, look at that Trimmings ribbon-- so clever! You never fail to inspire me, my dear.
