Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Freebie Friday is taking a break this week as I have a sneak peek from my show on Hochanda tomorrow live from Ally Pally at 3pm.

I started by stamping the Woodware Doodle Flower Basket onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with CS Black Detail Powder. I stamped a second time, just needed the flowers on the second one. I cut the main image out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles. I misted with water and added a little Straw Yellow and Aubergine Dream Pixie Powder. I moved the pixies across the card using a wide brush and put aside to dry.

While my background was drying, I painted the flowers on the second image using Teal Wash, Straw Yellow and Aubergine Dream Pixie Powders.

I went back to my main image and coloured in using the same Pixie Powders plus Spearmint for the leaves. I also mixed a little Candied Apple Distress Crayon with Straw Yellow Pixie Powder to colour in part of the basket.

I cut the painted flowers out from my second image, shaped them and added them to my main image, securing at the centres only using CS Glue.

I added a 5mm Black Pearl to the corners, popped onto a Black Card mat cut using the next sized die in Sue's Double Pierced Background Rectangles and then onto a Coconut White Card blank. I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Jet Black Archival.

Please be patient with me with website orders at the moment as I'm not sure what time I will be back from taking my Dad to the hospital today and I'm off to Ally Pally early tomorrow morning. I will hopefully catch up on Monday.

Thanks for stopping by.
