A selection of Kan-Ban kit cards

Tim Holtz tissue tape lampshades

I purchased two new lamps last week but decided I didnt like the stark white and plain striped glass shades.  Out came the Tim Hotz tissue tape and 20 minutes later they were transformed:)

The plasterer left me a present!

I found a roll of self adhesive plasterers scrim after the builders left yesterday and knew I'd be able to do something crafty with it.  One problem, it wasn't the nice fabric sort but a plastic variety.  Immediately I thought of colouring it with alcohol inks and they did work brilliantly but I wondered what would happen if I stuck it to mirror board and used it as a mask as I was colouring it.  The effect is great and I now have a piece of unique reflective cardstock for my crafting as well as an unusual 'ribbon' ideal for man cards.  The scrim is easily stored on a piece of acetate, its adhesive side is not too sticky, just enough to hold it in place.
