Adjust the Sails.

Good evening everyone, I do hope that you have had a good day....

I have been kept on my toes by our little man.....but he has settled in well....sleeps until 6-30 and is getting the hang of going outside to do his business...

Tess is really good with him....and she is teaching him so much....especially where the dog food is kept.

I am off to the NEC tomorrow to catch up with friends and do some research.....oh and shopping...
So tonight I thought I would share a card with you....it is one of the ones that I managed to make for Barbara for the tv on Sunday....
( oh I had one day to make the samples between Glasgow and workshops...I am so glad that the stamps and stencils are so fantastic to use.)
 
 

I stamped the boat using VersaFine ink - Onyx black and then added some colour using Spectrum Noir pencils. I do love the way these pencils blend so well ....I did use my little paper stump too...

Next came the stencil, ..now you know that I love my stencils.....

First I added some Butterscotch ink using a stencil brush....

Next came some shade using Latte and a make up sponge....

This was the result....quite good but I felt that it still needed more depth....

So out with the Espresso...

Now that's better....

Next some aptly named Sale Boat Blue....and the scissors.....

Some matting and layering onto black card.....plus adding the topper...

And the sentiment...

I really enjoyed making this card...even though it did change direction twice....but then that is what life is all about.....

The stamps and stencil are available from Claritystamp.... http://www.claritystamp.co.uk

Enjoy your evening.....

See you when I get back....or at the NEC...

Much love,

Jo. X
