 Hello everyone,

I was in my craft room, and there was this basket way up the top of the [ what once was] wardrobe bookcase and it was crooked,

 well, we can't have crooked so I reached up to straighten it, and it would not straighten or go back.

 well, we can't have crooked so I reached up to straighten it, and it would not straighten or go out came my step ladder and up I went..

I found my missing mold, Stamperia Steampunk things, I'm so happy.

So, while I'm here and all happy and stuff, I will share a stencil I made and a card..

Nothing mind blowing but fun..

I could have made more holes, but less is more,
 and I wanted to have a go at oxide inks layering..

After the first layer I've learned to wait or help dry the layers,
 that was the error I have been making..

Oop's skipped a step, but this was layer three and looking okay..

When dry I could see the circle of colour underneath so was a bonus..

Oh, poo, it bled..I splattered with water, duh!..
oxides react and they bled, but not too much..

Popped on the wonderful die cut butterfly..

and added a gold embossed sentiment, and gems,
 which took on the colour  of the oxides..
They were clear, but that's okay too..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you later on..
