Diamonds are a girls best friend.

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

Take care 
Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx
