Ok, I love this stamp and have been waiting to have time to use it…today was the day!
To make this card I used a white card blank, a piece of water-colour paper cut to 13cm x 13cm. I applied a little bit of blue and green distress ink to a piece of waxed paper, spritzed it with water and sponged on the sky and grass. Once I was happy with the amount of colour I used a heat gun to speed up the drying time.
Using my We R Memory Keepers Precision Press I lined up the Stamping Bella “One of My Peeps” stamp and applied some black Ink. You then colour in the image using the coloured pencils of your choice and then again using the precision press line up the sentiment stamp and dry.
The next step was to dab the clouds on using the white glitter Wink of Stella pen (I like to use a mini pom-pom to do this).
I chose a white glitter card for the frame and then using the We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board cut out a 1/4″ frame to go around the water-colour paper, affixing it all using Crafter’s Companion Glue Tape. The finishing touch was to apply Dew Drops by the Ton Stamps (I am obsessed with these).

So, I’ve been out of the country for well over amonth, first on holiday, and then to say goodbye to a dear friend and love and support another.
I’ve been missing my craft studio, so will be spending a lot of time there in the weeks to come and have lots of projects to post!
Keep your eyes on the shop section as there will also be lots of new products coming in the next couple of months as well.
In some other exciting news, I am pleased to say that I am part of the 2017 Crafter’s Companion Design Team and with that will be running some specials to highlight some of my favourite products from them, this will be coming in April.
I will end this brief update with a few colouring projects I’ve been doing while getting over my jet lag, the Markers used are Spectrum Noir alcohol markers from Crafter’s Companion.
