Good morning all my lovely friends out there.
Can I 1st send out my thoughts & prayers to this terrible disaster in Japan & surrounding area's me & hubby looked at the video's on the internet & I wanted to cry for them...it really is awful & unimaginable!! My heart goes out to each & every one of them. It will be a long time before I complain of anything put it that way my pains are nothing compared to what they are going thru.
Well we have a miserable day here really yukky & grey. My eldest Ben went for a drive last night with his girlfriend Megan & my youngest son Jake & he sent photos thru the blackberry doodly-ma-bob & I think he was about 25 miles away & there was snow.....SNOW.. in blooming spring!!!!!
Anyway I got to play last night I sat & coloured an image in the living room & then went into my hobbit to craft...... I have a desk now in the conservatory so I do all my colouring inside but I'm in the process of re-arranging all my copics & promarkers into 1 big case so I can carry it around & colour where I want.
Right I'm gonna get on & show you what I made its a picture for Natalie's bedroom once its all done which explains the colours.....I used another un-inked Sweet Pea stamp & its become yet another fave I sooooo enjoyed colouring her she is sooooo pretty.
Here is 'Flowing In Blue'
WARNING PHOTO HEAVY
Yes ok so for my princess she flows in pink & black. Its a 8x8 picture frame that I brought about a month before crimbo I think.
The brackets are from my Tim Holtz Sign thingy & I just cut the brackets out & snipped off the hole things for where you would hang the sign. The frame I ditressed in some area's.
The butterfly is a new die that I cant remember the name of will pop into hobbit later to have a peek lol.
I cut the bottom one out of pink card & then the edges inked slightly with weathered wood & the top out of white then sprayed with CC spray & shine & sprinkled lashings of glitter over the top.
She has been coloured with Copics & pink Liquid Pearls added to the butterfly & the oval thingy's. I've also used a white gel pen to create dotty streaks in her hair & on the butterfly. Its very rare I use my white gel pen but its fab for this effect.
