Good morning all, 
Firstly I would like to say welcome to another new follower. 
Please pull up a chair and make yourself at home. 

I hope you had a lovely weekend. 
We had a lovely workshop on Saturday and spent the morning creating a shaker card and a shaped card.
It was so lovely and such a happy creative time.
We had the grandchildren for a sleep over on Saturday but unfortunately Karl was unwell, 
So I had 3 little men to look after. 

I hope you managed to catch the Lavinia shows on The Craft Store on Friday. 
Here is one of my samples. 

Here is a little tutorial of how I made it. 
So if you fancy grabbing a brew and joining me…
Let’s get creating 

I began by creating a background using my Elements ink pads. 
I do love to do this, and the ink pads have so much pigment in them. 
I used a piece of the watercolour card…honestly it is just fabulous card. 

I used a grey to add a sort of moody look. 
My attempt at adding atmosphere. 

When dry I added the stamping, using black ink. 

Then I added more foliage using Monarch ink. 
Look how you can build up the foliage and frame the design

I added the moon with a circle mask, then added more detail using my chalk pastel pencils. 
I also blended more ink around the edges to frame the scene. 

Then finally some sparkle with some of the Eco Glitter. 
Here is a closer look.

I do love the way the sky has turned out. 

I hope your Monday goes well and that you have a lovely day. 
Take care all. 

Thanks for popping in

Another fab card. I thought of you last night as the sky was just like your water coloured skies. I was going to look back at YouTube to give it a go myself when this morning I find you’ve created another one. Now off to change my water on the craft table, “just like Jo”. Love & hugs, Sue. x
