Danger - woman in altered state of art!

Amazing how the mood is instantly improved when the sun shines.  Seems we are having a late summer, or is this the summer we were meant to have?    So no languishing in bed,  it was up, out and at 'em.  Well sort of,  put the sizzix boutique in post,  stampmaker is being watched by several buyers! 

So after sending the parcel I popped into our 'everythingincluding the kitchen sink' store, well you name it, it seems to stock it.  It can be a bit of an Aladdins cave,  and today it provided me with the metal tape!  And a cheap frame.  The frame is for the Anything But a Card challenge, £1.50,  a bargain.  Tape wasnt that expensive either, and best of all my bank balance is healthy!   So I enjoyed a nice stroll home via the gardens,  which is a far nicer walk than trudging along the main road.

 So here is the covered frame,  still a work in progress, waiting for the new paints to arrive.   I popped some die cuts under the tape, and used an embossing tool to bring out the shape.  Still lots of grunge work to do, stamping and who knows what!   The tape also worked with the slice,  now need to get hold of some of the copper tape. 

Now I've got the tape I can also have a bash at the TH tag.  of course I know what will happen when I get the paints, I will want the rest of them.  Was watching Sheena on youtube, she gets so wonderfully messy! 

Well nothing too exciting for today,  a case of watch this space for progress on the frame.  I've done all my cutting,  now it is a question of getting very messy over the next day or so  - love it.

This is looking very interesting Cass!! I shall be back to see what you do for sure! Once you've opened this tape you will become addicted I promise you. I have to sit on my hands to stop me using it all time!
