Proud Stag,

Good afternoon all and thanks for popping in.

Do hope that you week is going well...I have just got back from the post office after sending the next batch of samples to Barbara ready for her shows on Sunday. Just wait until you see the new stencils....you will see just why I love them...

I thought I would share a card with you that uses a technique with the Color Burst powders. Now regular readers will know that I love these wonderful powders and have been teaching them for a while now..

This technique uses placement of specific colours and I have to say I have been thrilled how many crafters have been using it...and as a designer and teacher it is such a thrill when you see a card that resembles one of your designs and has been made by someone else...... ( also means that I am doing my job correctly....) phew.....

The stag is created using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.

( notice the new ink pad!!!)

 

This then creates a resist and then I was able to add the colour burst powders, starting with the yellow, ( where I wanted the sun to be)....using the powders one colour at a time, and then spritzing with water...

Followed by some blue in the sky, green land and some purple tones to create the look of heather.

When dry , I had this, and just drew around the stag with a black fine liner pen.

Next came the trees and shrubs using stamps and some charcoal pencils.

That's better, I do think he looks at home .....here is a closer look...

Oh and some liquid pearls just added the finishing touches to the shrubs....

Perfect design for a male....birthday....even Christmas or New Year....

Speaking of which I can't believe we are in December .....

I must get on , workshops in Hazel Grove tomorrow...and pyrography orders to finish tonight.....

Good job Karl is away as I fear it will be a late night....( good job I have Tess and Eric for company )

Take care everyone...

Love and hugs ( extra big hug for you Wendy S. X )

Jo. xxx
