Good afternoon everyone,
Wow , it is March already.
This year is certainly flying .
Happy St David’s Day...
I am still struggling with this lovely cold, but I do feel a little better after a walk with Karl and Eric and a
nice hot chocolate .
It is so windy outside today, but lovely if you wrap up warm.
Just good to not have rain.
Today it is a new Challenge over at the Lavinia website
The new theme is
A Forest Gathering
This is my inspiration, and here is how I created it.
I had no idea where this design was going,
So I just started by adding some ink onto some card
Thank you Billy...
I added some water splats and left it to dry.
Next I needed a focal point, and then some creatures.
Followed by more stamping.
And next some colouring pencils to give more detail.
I used a black and a white charcoal pencil, and then blended more black ink around the edges.
This gives more atmosphere to the design.
Finally I wanted some sparkle, but only in the central area where the gathering was taking place.
Oh yes, I do love this.
Only it isn’t easy to photograph, sorry.
I do hope that you will pop along to the website and enter the challenge,
The winner is chosen at random and wins £40 to spend on Lavinia stamps.
Enjoy the rest of your day
Much love and hugs
