Hello,I`m back with another awesome project we did on the cruise.
How cute are those cork vials filled with sand and small shells?
See the fab key? We all only need one,but the awesome Tim Holtz generously supplied each one of us (48 stampers)with a full packet of Idea-ology Word Keys!
Thank you Tim!
Rachel went to a lot of trouble (and packets of scrabble tiles!) to give each one of us two with our initials
The Darkroom Door papers were inked with Broken China and Antique Linen distress inks.
The grassy chipboard was painted with Bronze Precious Metal Colour (love that stuff!)
Just a couple of photos to share
Beautiful Isle of Pines. The first port of call.
Don't forget to click on pictures for more details.
See you again soon with more!

We made this album in the first class.The colours are gorgeous!
I still have to add my own finishing touches and some photos of course.
The colours are Ice Blue and Bronze Precious Metal paint.
7 Gypsies gaffer tape binds the cover.
We all received a new collage stamp which we stamped and highlighted with the Crayon Resist technique. How cool does it look? Love it.
The title '2012 Stamping Cruise' is chipboard which was painted in Ice Blue with a touch of Bronze.
Glassine paper crumpled and placed under the collage.
There is a page for each day to journal. We stamped lines from the Calendar set and shells from the Seashells collection.
Was supposed to write in it each day but was too busy trying to fit in as many activities as possible on the ship!
Itinerary of the cruise
We added kraft tags,small and large glassine envelopes,and translucent envelopes through out the album.
Will post more pictures when I have completed the album.
It is going to be a treasured keepsake!

Thanks for looking and I will be back with more!

I am back after a wonderful,fabulous,fantastic awesome 12 nights on this lovely ship!
This was my first cruise and I am keen to go again!
Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door made the cruise even more exciting with the fun classes. Lots of ink,paint,embellishments and stamps of course :)
Too much to show in one blog post, so will start with the spectacular shadow box we made in the second class.
Every hard to photograph with the glass, so have taken a few photos.
Click on photos to see more details.
The gorgeous background was made using Viva Ferro and Viva Precious Metal paint.
After applying the Ferro,you stamp into it to create texture. The paint is rubbed over the raised texture...hmmm yum!
So much better in real life!
The paper layer under the butterfly started as a blank piece of white card which I stamped a collage and distressed with distress inks (of course!)Under that is a piece of muslin,then card painted with Inka Gold in Alt Silber (Old Silver)
Back soon with more creations.
