Under the sea.

Good afternoon all, I do hope you are keeping well 
and managing to stay cool. 
Although I must admit it is cloudy here today...
Yesterday it was our regular Hazel Grove workshops. 
We did some distressing with inks and some splatting...

We used Stamps from Lavinia Stamps, 
I do love this handsome chap..
I used Distress Oxide ink for my background as I do love the way that they blend. 
I also used a silver gel pen and it gave him such a lovely almost ‘wet “ look.
Now it wasn’t easy to photograph...
So here is my attempt 

Hope you get the idea. 

We also used the resist technique with white embossing powder. 

The feather stamp is just brilliant to add a hint of colour

And finally before I go....
Elliot had his first proper hair cut the other day...
I don’t think he enjoyed it...

But he was ok afterwards...

My goodness he looks more like Adam every day..
Must go and tidy a few more cupboards...
Take care all

Much love and hugs
