I have had great fun this week colouring the stamped images from a stamp set by Stampin Up called back on Your Feet, and then fussy cutting the images and turning them into cards. The cards on left were coloured with watercolours and the cards on the right were done with Copic colours. The papers were bits and pieces from lots of different companies. I have a box of 6″ pads and I just flipped through these to find what I wanted to use. The die cut shapes were foam mounted on to the card fronts to give a bit of dimension. As well as playing with this stamp set this week I have been preparing some lessons, ready for August when Helens classes will start! Til next time….
I couldn’t resist this cute little Unicorn stamp set by Neat and Tangled. After stamping i coloured with Copic markers, and added flowers and ribbon . The background paper is a from a 6″ pad by lawn fawn. My Puppy Daisy is recovering well from her operation yesterday, she was very sad and sorry for herself last night but seems to have forgotten all about it today and now the challenge is to stop her from jumping up on everything until the wound heals.Meanwhile I have been busy in the kitchen this morning making a big pot of vegetable soup for tea as it is so cold here, and also some lemon butter spread to use up some of our lemon crop. Til tomorrow….
I recently bought some copic colour markers and headed off to a beginners class to learn how to use them(!)and since then have been practising my colouring. Here are my first few attempts. The stamps are from my collection, the first is a magnolia stamp, and the last is a deep red stamp ( from a set of four…absolutely excellent stamp set) and I can’t remember the brand of the cupcake stamp.Anyway, I coloured, and then teamed the images with some bits and pieces I had left over from my Kaisercraft Velvet Crush collection and added assorted flowers and punched leaves to finish.Today I visited my hairdresser, who sells my cards in her salon, only to find she had sold every one of the wedding cards I had left with her. So tonight I will be in the craft room creating all things wedding…Til tomorrow…..
