I have a compulsion that I think I might need counselling for very soon. I can't help myself - even though I know it's wrong and I shouldn't do it, I do it anyway, and then feel really guilty.
But I think trying to explain the lure of new rubber to a therapist could end me up in far deeper water than I am already in. I mean, what would you think if a lady of a certain age sat on your sofa and said she was addicted to rubber??
And that compulsion/addiction has lead me to some gorgeous stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie that I have seen around on blogland and just knew I had to have. If you haven't met this little lady already let me introduce you to Lulu.
This one is from the Lulu On The Move set that I found with the lovely Tracy at Dies to Die For. There are three Lulu images in the set and a sprinkle of sentiments so all is well with the world - great value for money. I also bought the Birthday Lulu set but haven't taken ink to rubber yet.
I've made this one for my office room-mate's little girl who will be six on Monday. She isn't a girlie-girl but not quite a tomboy so it was difficult to find that in between.
I've painted Lulu with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and then with her hoop I used Diamond Glaze to give dimension and shine and added a sprinkle of Glamour Dust for some irresistible sparkle. I know it doesn't show well in the above photo so here is a closer look just to prove it really does sparkle!
And that quirky sentiment is part of the set. Brilliant.
That's all from me for now. Hope your day is a happy one, whatever you are up to.
