Wee Folk....

Good afternoon all and welcome to another new follower ....I really do appreciate all of you who spend some time on here with me...and yes I know some of you just read my waffle and are not able to leave a comment,,,,( I would mention names from the Wednesday workshops....but it may take all day!!! )

Did you have a good weekend. ?

It was a quiet one here with that dreaded flu bug lingering...Adam now has tonsillitis and a chest infection....and I just can't believe how tired I am...but Thanks to Little...or not so little Eric there is always some reason to smile....

 

Did you manage to catch Barbara with the Clarity show on Sunday morning....I have to say that the Wee Folk stamps are my new favourite and I am not surprised that they sold out so quickly...

Here is one of my samples that was featured on the show...

 

One of my set designs is to use four small toppers on a card...so I started with four pieces of Gelli card....and some Lettuce Adirondack ink.

That was the first hill...now for some meadow ink and the second hill.

Next I added some sky...( using a clarity mask for the sun)

And some sun..


Next some shade around the edges to frame the scene...
I find if I make all four at the same time I am more likely to get them to resemble each other...

And now to the stamping....the hardest bit ....which four stamps to choose.....???

Well the lady walking the dog was an obvious choice..

And some romance...

And this one is adorable....

Oh and this one...

The words are from the A Million Thank Yous stamp set and the lovely floral border is from the Floral Figures Remountable stamps,,

All the stamps are available from the Clarity web site... http://www.claritystamp.co.uk.

Or by phoning Clarity Towers and speaking to Janice....01732-868215...she is so lovely and always really helpful...

Well it is that time again...Eric and Tess have three walks a day at the moment....so it is time for walk number three...sometimes I feel like I am walking my legs off....no wonder I am so short....I do worry that one day I may end up as one of Dave's Wee Folk.....

On that note I will leave you much a smile and a hug...

Take care and pop back soon.

  7. This is so lovely and all the different stamps and mask go together so well. I hope you enjoyed walk number 3. Our two little yorkies also get 3 walks a day but I don't think they need to walk as far as your dogs. Would love to be able to stand wee Jo on my work table to guide me as I craft. Xx
