Wednesday Stamper - Orange Mark 1 and 2

I always have a look at the Wednesday Stampers blog, realise that I am not worthy, and never take part. However, this mornings post just blew me away and I decided that I must have a go. I've changed my hours at work so have the day off today - it feels like crafting in works time. Won't be as good on Saturday though when I'm going in but that's days away yet :o)
The theme is orange, so I have gone for a sunrise/sunset sort of thing.
The bird stamp is from Elusive Images, and the background has been painted with Ecoline inks, then sprayed with mango Cosmic Shimmer spray, which I got pretty damn quickly when Joanna Sheen got them back in stock.
Last night I went to a Stampin Up demo held by Jo.
This was so much fun - it's so nice to be able to talk crafty talk to people who are still awake after 30 seconds (my family know who I am talking about) :0). You can tell how nice everyone was, no-one mentioned the fact that I had a black eye that would put Ricky Hatton to shame! ( I do jujitsu - obviously not too well lol)
Thanks very much for looking and have a great day xx

You know that saying, if t isn't broken don't fix it - well I just wasn't quite convinced that my ATC was finished (I have such a fear of empty spaces, must get therapy) So I gave it another spray of the Cosmic Shimmer - just because it is sooooo nice, then I added a little Basic Grey rub-on.
I'm happy now, it's all done - I'm walking away.....
really I am.....
