Tuesday taggers..... GET MESSY!

What a great challenge this week.... i always get messy and work in total chaos.... but to actually take a picture of it? Now that was a challenge! I had to wash my hands to get the camera so you cant see the state my hands were in but i'm sure you can imagine!
I have altered a little set of drawers.... painted them with a paint i mixed... matt black with just a hint of glitter.... stamped and embossed every side and then sanded it.... my grandad couldnt believe i'd do all that work then attack it with a sanding block.... he watched in amazement.... unfortunatly he'd forgotten by tea time and asked where i got the 'box' but hey.... thats grandad! I highlighted edges and corners with gold, then sanded... had an awful lot of fun.... really i should have photographed my trousers as they were filthy as i sanded it on my lap in the kitchen.
I used T!m Holtz stamps and china white embossing powder.
Please come and join us this week.... i really cant wait to see what you create but mostly i wanna see everyones mess.... will it be worse than mine? I doubt it!
Thanks for stopping by hugs lynx

This i shall also enter into http://otherlovelies-suzanne.blogspot.com/ challenge, although it is supposed to be a card the challenge is RAK... A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS and this i shall give to my dear blogging sparring partner OZ as she liked it and i have been lucky enough to win some of her fantastic art work
