So very fun and difficult!
I bought the simply swanky soldering kit at impress a while back, and finally thought I would give it a whirl~ At least I have a base line I can follow now, and a class to look forward to. It is *not* as easy as I thought it would be~ and I am wondering if my tool is defective since it doesn't seem to maintain consistent heat.
I stamped the bird image (Lockhart stamps) onto the afternoon tea paper, and then stamped again on shimmery white and cut the body/wings out and adhered to the paper. The birds are colored in with copic G00 (*LOVE* that color!!) I used the "a" from typeset alpha on the flipside. I like it....but definitely want it smoother looking. more practice! And the jump ring....ugh! wow, that was a challenge!
Last night's Tip-A-Cop went really well. Huge turnout, lots of cool cars/vans, the K-9 was there, and I even got arrested and paraded through the restaurant. (My son cooked that up I am told) They then took a Polaroid of me bent over the squad car, cuffed for each of my kids......"show and tell" my son said. Pin It Now!
