It's my Stampotique teamie France's turn to wow us this week at PaperArtsy and she's come up with some fabulous creations. I wanted to make a key spool so first job buy some wooden spools :-) (I'm obviously the only one in the country that didn't have any lol)
I started by painting it blue but it looked naff so I painted over with Vintage Lace and Brown Shed.
I stamped the happy couple from the Pierrot 3 plate onto shrink plastic, and the 'Clowning Around' from plate 1 onto some ribbon.
I also attached a masquerade charm to the bottom.
I liked the ribbon 'cos I could fray the edges, little things please little minds and all that :-).
The top of the spool has been stamped in my 'go to' little text stamp from Clocks plate 1.
I can honestly say it took me as long to attach the fibres and twiddly bits as it took me to make the rest of it, and that was using industrial size jump rings - wish I'd gone to Specsavers....
Now on a more serious note - someone has stolen this week!! Where has it gone to? all the worky bits - yep plenty of time for those, but playtime, it's gone, vamoosed and it's Sunday again already. So thank very much for looking and enjoy what left of the weekend before it disappears into the Twilight Zone....
