Good morning everyone and thanks for popping in.
Another cold and frosty dog walk today , so
I am just having a nice warm brew whilst I catch up with you.
Hope you had a good weekend,
We had a wonderful time in Anglesey,
And we have a wonderful new venue,
A light, airy, clean , warm hall...
Perfect for workshops...
Plenty of parking and a great kitchen...
It is already booked for next April..
Today I am going to share with you a tutorial
Using this wonderful stamp from Lavinia Stamps.
This really is an
Eye catching design....!!!
Sorry.... couldn’t resist it
I started with my background
And began to add distress Oxide inks and water.
Heating inbetween each colour
This is such fun to do
And very addictive..
When dry I edged with some more purple...
(Homage to Karen and Anne )
Next the stamping in black VersaFine Clare ink
Then I added some detail to the background
Deepened the edges by adding some black ink...
This really frames it well
Some splats of Black Inka gold...
Now, you know how I love my splats...
I then added the words these are from a Christmas verse from Lavinia,
Some silver gel pen and some dots of white acrylic paint.
I hope you can see the shimmer ,
She is so beautiful .
Some gems just add the finishing detail,,,
I must get on, I am off to pick Elliot up ,
He has a Halloween party at nursery tomorrow,,,
And I have our Hazel Grove workshops..
No trick or treating there...
My little pumpkin....
Take care all,
Much love and hugs
