Out and about.

Good afternoon and thanks for looking in today....I have just had lunch and so I thought it was a good time to sit and have a catch up...

How is your week going? ...Karl is away this week so I am trying to catch up on my long list of jobs....

I went and posted my samples yesterday....as Barbara is on TV this coming Sunday....more goodies for you to add to your wish list....or NEED list.....

I have sent the class email to the ladies ready for next weeks workshops.....and got all the samples made....

I have even made some commissioned cards this morning and unpacked another rather large Clarity order....( I still get excited when my order arrives.....what am I like!!!!)

Today I am going to share with you a sample that I made for the latest Clarity show in Germany....

This is one of my favourite stencils....and yes I do keep using it....( sorry ) But it has to be done..

http://www.claritystamp.co.uk/Clarity-Stencils/18000-/Circles-Box-Frame-Stencil-7-x-7-Inch

I used Gelli card, adirondack inks and my stencil brushes...Plus some sequin waste...To create the background. Using the inner of the stencil to mask off the central square.

Then using post it notes to cover this part of the design, I worked on the central square and created the landscape.

The Wee boy was stamped in Black Archival ink...

I coloured the tree using my Spectrum Noir pencils...

One of the things that I like to do is to extend the design and so more ink was added using my stencil brushes....

The Wee boy needed a reason to be outside playing so I drew him some bubbles to play with...And added Glossy Accents to them...

Black fine liner pen and a not very steady hand add the finishing touches....I like to follow this through onto the card blank too..

Not sure if I would be joining him today as we have sun one minute and then hailstones the next....

Hope the weather is better where ever you are...

Well lunch over...so better get on....got some canvas and grunge paste waiting for my attention...

Then it will be time to walk the dogs......

Enjoy your afternoon all,

See you soon.

Love and hugs.
