Good morning everyone,
I hope you had a lovely weekend.
The weather was a bit mad, wasn’t it ?
Sun one minute and snow the next.
We had a wonderful workshop on Saturday and we looked at designs suitable for Men’s cards.
Today I am sharing one of my samples for today’s
One Day Special on The Craft Store
It uses a couple of the new diamond stencils from
Aall & Create, along with a cute little girl from Janet Klein.
I started with a mop up piece of card from cleaning my stencil.
Then I added a similar print but using a different colour ink and the smaller stencil.
I do love how they work so well together .
Next I stamped this beautiful foliage stamp from Bipasha .
Then I stamped and added some colour to our cutie .
She is so adorable
As usual I added colour firstly with ink and water, and then added shade and highlights with
Chalk pastel pencils.
They really are becoming my go to pencils.
A couple of the ‘ticker tape ‘ embellishments.
Another one of my obsessions of the moment.
It is funny how we get into these things isn’t it. ?
Then I looked in my stash and found some moss,
perfect cushion for my cutie
One of the new washi tape has numbers on it and they are great just to add a little bit more interest to the design.
Some charcoal shading and posca splats to complete the design
I just love this type of design, it has white space, but also a beautiful focal point with so much detail.
It is also so lovely to be able to mix and match the designs from the different designers at Aall & Create.
I have more samples to create today.
Although I may be a little slow.
For some reason I kept coughing in the night and my chest is painful again.
But hey ho.
I will just take it slowly
I hope you have a lovely day whatever you are up too
Much love and hugs
