Live , Love, Laugh...

Good afternoon all, well what a difference a day makes...it is so dark, wet and windy here today...not such a glorious Spring day...

Well Mr Shredder has lived up to his name and yesterday Eric chewed the tv remote.......today ...well a cd case....I think we have hit the terrible two's !!!!!!...

How has your weekend been? And chewing incidents?

Today I want to share with you my favourite sample from last weeks tv shows...it incorporated the new Treehouse stamp, the new alphabet stamps and the fairies....

I started with a piece of Gelli card and stamped the treehouse stamp..

This stamp comes with the most gorgeous and useful hanging vine stamps....great for borders..

Next I stamped the words...Notice I like to use brown ink,,,makes a nice change from Black...

Now out with some masks.....

And then some torn paper to create the Sky...I find it easier to turn my work...

First some blue...

And then some purple...for drama...

And now some land...

This is what I have created so far....

Now to take off the masks ...

And add some fairies....note how they look like they are holding the boxs...

And some stars...I must say I do use this little stamp so much...

I stamped the treehouse twice more and cut them out.

I added colour with my favourite Spectrum Noir Pencils...really easy colouring...

I used glue gel to decoupage the treehouse. Added some matting and layering....And job done.....

I really enjoyed making this card , I hope you have enjoyed sharing the step by step...

It is time for me now to finish cooking our Sunday Dinner...so I had better get a move on...

Thank you for looking in...Take care all....

See you soon
