'Fishin' Around!'

Hello and welcome to my CB blog for April/May. Not much detail this month due to a couple of sad and close family events. 
This project was inspired by a 'find' in a cupboard during a bit of an avalanche at which time a box tumbled out. This was the solar globe, purchased a couple of years ago in a sale for £2.50! Time to decorate!!!

  • Stamps:- A Year of Stamping:- July - Standard, Super; August - Standard, Super
  • Inkpads:- Ranger Archival Black Ranger Distress:- Cracked Pistachio, Fired Brick, Barn Door, Vintage Photo; Adirondack Butterscotch
  • Misc:- Tissue Paper; Double Sided Sticky Sheets; Solar Lantern; Coloured Pencils - Inktense, Polychromos, Derwent  Metallic; Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens; Ranger Glossy Accents


  1. Using each itemised stamp and Archival Black, stamp each four times. 
  2. Apply double sided sticky sheet, cut to size, to fit each image on the stamped side. 
  3. Turn over and colour elements with itemised ink-pads, pencils and Sparkle pens. 
  4. Cut out elements then add dimension through Glossy Accents.
  5. Peel off the protective backing and apply to suit onto the solar globe.
Et voila! The Global Reef is complete.
