Friends With Flair . . .

 Woohoo it`s Friday which means that it`s time for
Be sure to head on over to see the new releases by Stephanie Ackerman
. . . swooon . . .
 and check out all the other projects full of inspiration galore HERE!!!
My project today is a . . .
. . . just because I wanted to one . . . 
no design team project, just me playing with off cuts of wood from a friend at the allotment who gifted me them
  lucky, lucky me!!
 I gathered some yummy supplies starting with a favourite stamp of mine from Unity Stamp Co. -
A quick splodge of Picket Fence Distress paint was applied , smooching and smudging it around with my hand.
Time to ink up that gorrrgeous stamp and get coloring with some Distress Stains, followed by some doodles and squiggles with a fine black liner pen.
I have to tell you how much I am in looove with rub ons, so easy to chop up and apply to anything!
The top of her skirt is a rub on . . . sooo pretty.
 I made a wee hole in the side of the wood to attach one of 
Tim Holtz`s Idea-ology clock keys . . . just because I had one lying on my work area,lol!
 Out came my Walnut Stain Ink Pad and blending tool to apply all around the edges for a more aged look.
A quick run around with a clear embossing pad, a dusting of embossing powder and a blast with my trusty Heat Tool and I was done.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to look.
Till next time
Hugs

This project is stunning. I have that stamp and have not played with it yet. I really want to do a mixed media project but have not had the courage to do it yet. I need time just to play with it.

Tracy,
You are soooooo creative. Luv this project! I always shy away from rub-ons, because I have had problems getting the entire image to transfer. They are convenient.

Absolutely brilliant, Tracy. I love the rustic look of the wood, the beautiful muted colour palette, and the fabulous rub-on detailing. I got this stamp in the recent Unity sale, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't even inked her up yet.. thank you for the nudge!
