Thanks for dipping in here.
Just had a very lovely day over in Medway with my parents.
While Dave went off to help a friend who needed a man with a van for the day, we went for a slap up carvery lunch together, and then settled down for a good old chinwag and catch up – just the 3 of us.
I LOVE listening to their life stories. Today was particularly interesting; I didn’t know much at all about my Great grandparents on my Dad’s side. One lot were from Glasgow, and the other lot were from Southshields.
So here a very quick step by step I rustled up for your pleasure,
it being step by step Sunday…
We need a piece of Clarity Designer paper from Dee’s
Stamp the little Fairy stamp with the apple with black Archival ink,
and mask off.
|FAIRIES SET 1+ masks|
FAIRIES SET 2 + masks
Dry brush blue ink downwards across the masked image.
Replace the masks – they are worth their weight in gold!
Bend the verse stamp on the mount before you stamp it into a curve underneath.
Darken all 4 edges with a blending tool
and Midnight Blue Artistry ink.
Add a touch of white.
Use a good white pen,
or white acrylic paint on a Groovi tool No. 1.
Mmm. Still needs something. Not magic enough yet….
How about a moon in the centre?
Back out with the masks!
Lightly tap white acrylic paint through the aperture
with a blending tool. The Viva Decor paint is very good if you are looking for a good white multi-purpose acrylic paint
There. That’s much better.
Picked up a little blue from the mask, so needs a little layer of blue around the outside. Good job I’ve got a 25 year old paper stash!
I am really enjoying these fairies by Mel.
The butterfly wings are perfect.
What’s even smarter on the Fairy Groovi plates is the wings aren’t attached. Not easily detected though.
You only really get this when you actually get in the groove.
also available individually.
Ah! I have just remembered the new idea we had last week.
Meeting first thing tomorrow morning. Exciting.
Who else gets to go to work on a Monday and can’t wait ??
This is when I am so happy that Design and Production are under the same roof; we can make a plan and implement it almost instantly.
Before the week commences, there is one thing I MUST DO:
W A T C H P O L D A R K.
But if he trades Demelza in for Elizabeth, I am selling the telly.
Love & Hugs,
PS. Guess who else is obsessed with Poldark? Yep. Mum.
She had a right fat go about George Warleggan. I just happened to mention that Elizabeth is mostly off her face on opium, and mum retorted, with “Vell, zat’s hardly surprizing ven you look at zat idiot of a husband, George. Can you blame her? Kreep. ”
Dad just looked at us as if we were mad.
