Hi guys, welcome again to my Blog.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, I did. On saturday night we had “Carols at the Lake”.
I live near a beautiful little town called Mittagong and its in the Southern highlands about an hour from Sydney. In not far the center of town we have lake called Lake Alexandra. Were there’s ducks, turtles and other wild bird life…..its a man made lake. It was used for water for the engines hauling coal to Fitzroy Iron Mines over 100 years ago. A very pretty spot with bush surrounding it….every second year we have carols down at the lake and it is so wonderful.
Anyway now I’m completely off track…who likes to colour in?
In January Stampin’ Up! will be releasing their new Occasions Catalogue and in this they have re-introduced watercolour pencils. Isn’t that wonderful…I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. So I made sure I ordered them in my pre-order. You see as I demonstrator you get to order the new product early. So if your interested in joining me then that’s one of the bonus you get…
So I also had to get a stamp to colour in…..I couldn’t resist it. Its so cute!
We all love babies don’t we…I do and now my boys are all growing up. I’m allowed to think they are cute because I can just hand them back..
Opps….off track again!
Think I’d better show you what I have been playing with today.
This is such simple cards.
- I used the Basic Black (Archival Ink) and stamped the image into Shimmery White card stock. Allow the ink to dry or heat set with a heat gun.
- With water colour pencil I lightly coloured the areas where I wanted colour and then went over with a Blender Pen.
- I went back over some of the areas again to add highlights and again blender in with the Blender Pen
- I like to leave some white space so I haven’t filled in all the areas with colour.
