Tragic Tuesday


The challenge on Tilda & Co is to decoupage a magnolia stamp, this is really easy for me, I always 3d Tilda's head or a dress or in this case Tilda with her horse, the horse gets the decoupage treatment. I'm not the best when it comes to cutting out but my little tip for today is to run a pen round the edges, for black stamped images I use a grey pen it hides the white of the cut paper yet not being to harsh to make it stand out and on small areas that need cutting out I use a craft knife on a glass cutting board that you can buy for the kitchen.
I admit defeat the box of plastic and wire has beaten me, all files are backed up and today I ring the man that can to see if he can fix this box of tricks so that I can go online for longer than twenty minutes per day. It takes that long to do a post! So I will apologise now for not getting to everyone blogs but hopefully it will get sorted this week.
