Thanks for popping in.
Had another chuckle reading through all your tea guesses yesterday! I think I will hold the winner till tomorrow. Savour it, so to speak…Do go into yesterday’s blog and have some fun.
Meanwhile, back in Clarityworld, Paul and I are revving up for the Sunday and Monday TV shows on HOCHANDA. Finally, I have finished the Twas the Night set! The final 5 are complete. I do hope you like them. I’ll show you them all tomorrow. But today, I wanted to do a step by step project, using one of the original little verses: Santa, the little old driver.
It’s been a while since we got inky, so are you ready?
Cut out the beard.
Stamp the little driver onto Stencil card
Mask off and add a moon.
Tear a hill and position….
Brush in the sky with Midnight Blue Artistry ink
Stamp some trees along the skyline.
Move the skyline down to add a little hillock.
Add a tree at the front.
Remove the mask, colour in his hat and use Dorso oil + Blending pen to smooth out pigment.
This works a treat.
Use a different blending pen to dip into Stick ink. Apply sticky ink to the hat with the nib instead of with a mapping pen.
Sprinkle glitter on sticky area.
This works like a dream too.
Edge and mount on a matching piece of our Design Card.
Layer up and add the snow on either side of the designer card with a white pencil, to create the illusion of a landscape flowing through Santa’s beard.
All done. Bit strange, but hey! There’s been much stranger stuff found in beards, that’s for sure!!!
Got lots of tricks and techniques for the Sunday 2-4 show. Hope you can join me.
Must go, said the Russian!
Love & Hugs,
