Hummingbirds

Good evening all , hope your week has gone well. We have another new follower who has joined our little gang...it is always great to see our group growing.....it really does make my day...

Today has been all about ticking jobs off the list, magazine cards, done, write ups done, dog walks done, ironing done, watering the plant pots done, packing the car ready for Clarity Cumbria tomorrow ...just done...

And now whilst our meal is cooking , I thought we could have a chat.

It has been another lovely sunny day here and Eric has just loved sitting on the lawn in the sun...it really does feel like summer....not sure how long it is going to last.

I thought we could look at another sample from Barbara's recent show...

It uses the rather magnificent hummingbirds Entwined stamp set.

I started by taping my stampbord together on the reverse side , this just makes it easier to work with .

Next , one of the lovely new Oriental pattern Stencils and some distress ink.

Oh yes...lovely....but a bit to clean and crisp...

So some water spritzing is needed, followed with some brown DI...

There...that's better...

Next some stamping using Black Archival ink.

And my favourite bit....scratching the design back to reveal some white areas...

So relaxing....and effective....and dare I say addictive....

If you haven't tried stampboard, I do urge you to try it....there are so many things that you can do with it...and so many wonderful Clarity Stamps and Stencils that are waiting to be used...

We are going to play some more tomorrow in Cumbria...

Right, food ready....better go and dish it up,

Enjoy your evening...and have a lovely weekend...

Pop back soon

Much love and hugs

Jo. xxx
