Simmi


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. 
Simmi



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
