Over a hundred now.....

......and I spent five hours yesterday sitting on a stall selling Christmas stuff for Charity at the local public hospital, so didn't get much crafting time (grabbed a couple of hours in the afternoon)!

I really enjoyed playing with the alcohol inks and today I continued to play with my ink pads and 'painted' backgrounds a la Zindorf for a while, and then I went back to some wet embossing and then I just decided to make a stack using stamps, ink and bling!  Here are a few examples of sets made. (I usually make about 6 of a kind - then I get bored and need to move on!)

I am entering the last one in several challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
Gingersnap Creations - Starry Night

SU Baubles and punch, Cherry Cobbler ink and sentiment from Season of Joy; plus some bling. The flourish is from one of Waltzing Mouse's newer sets

Just using up some embellies!

Season of Joy tree, masking and dabbing and spraying with smooch spray (white and gold for the sun), SU ribbon and Stickles; SU Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo are the colours and the sentiment is white EP

Masking and sponging and the stag from SU Going Postal in Momento London Fog; Copics to help colour the moon and the shadow under the stag; tree 'ribbon' added an then all sprayed with white smooch after a rub-on was added for sentiment

Excellent example of Zindorf style (she's great isn't she!). That waltzing mouse flourish is awesome and goes great with the baubles :)
