Artist Trading Coins, JOFY, Prismacolour pencils

UK stampers forum coin swaps… stripes

Hello there blog readers… so today I actually had to produce some output at work, leading to lots of procrastination but eventually getting there. The procrastination period however has led to me finally reading/scanning all of the emails in the inbox from the 4 and half weeks off… so also productive albeit not on the work that I should have been doing. Got there in the end though so all is good.

Hubby got the Wii Fit out today too and did 30 mins on it before work … I’m considering having a go tonight but who knows whether that will actually happen or not!

I have however done a short walk after work to the supermarket and back so I’ve done an attempt at exercise. I might point out that the walk to the supermarket led to eating liqorice allsorts on the sofa under a blanket… my first slip on healthy eating and another reminder that my strength as a result of covid is rubbish!

Ah well… onto the crafting!

Like Monday, I have a stripes based swap to share. This time it’s the artist trading coins I made for the UK Stampers Forum swap.

I followed much the same process for these coins as I did for yesterday’s tag, using scrap strips of cardstock for the backgrounds.

This time I also added stamping and embossing on some strips and coloured stamping on others.

Also I added some dots using my posca pen to some strips. On the white strips I also added some green stripes using my promarker pen.

I then used a scrap of a the Pretty Peacock card to stamp and emboss the mini Jofy flower. Then played with the Prismacolour pencils to add some colour.

The sentiment was stamped on the shaded spruce scraps and then adhered across the flower and gems added to finish off.

I loved playing with the strips to create the stripes background. Made a really fun background to play with.

OK its now or never for the wii fit… decisions, decisions!

Happy crafting!

Catherine
