Good afternoon all and thanks for joining me for a tea break today. I do hope that your day is going well.
I am just having a quick break from tackling my list of orders.
I thought we would look at some Pyrography today...as you know one of my passions,.
This is a lovely little box for Mum's treasures...you know all those little things that we keep.
I started by stamping the letters from the Letterbox set of Clarity stamps...as always I used the VersaFine , Vintage Sepia ink.
Next came the rest of the stamping...and here I used the Haberdashery set and the Art Nouveau corner stamp...
I stamped all the way around the box
Then it was time to start burning ...and you can see which elements have been burnt into the wooden box.
Oh yes a cup of tea in my favourite mug helps at this stage.
Once I have finished , then it is decision time...
To leave it and varnish or to add some colour.
This time , I went for some colour . Once again I used some translucent Fresco paint with a little water.
You really need the Pyrography to show through ..
I do love this little ribbon border stamp..
All the stamps and paint can be found on the clarity website...
I do love to use my stamps in this way ...and when I decorate a box as a gift it is so easy to make a matching card...and let's face it , I have so many fabulous stamps to choose from...
Must get on as I still have the dogs to walk and then later this evening I have to go and pick Karl up from the airport...he has been working in Poland...oh I have missed him...
Take care all and thanks for looking in
See you again soon
Love and hugs
