Fun in the Sun

Phone Case (6)

Afternoon all. We had a busy day yesterday as it was Miss 4’s Preschool Sports Day and the Preschools 10th Birthday Celebrations. So I had a lazy evening watching Bridget Jones Baby. And after a little lie in and lazy lunch I’m about to get crafty, but first I thought I would share another sneaky peak.

There are new Cherry Green stamps that will be launching on Hochanda on 26th July and today I have another make to show you, this time a phone case:

Phone Case (4)

I stamped the image onto tissue paper and very carefully coloured it with Spectrum AquaBlend Pencils, using only the teeny tiniest amount of water to Blend the Colours.

Phone Case (7)

I then very carefully stuck the coloured tissue paper into the phone case with a generous amount o Ranger Glossy Accents.

Mermaid Kisses

Mermaid Kisses (2)

Morning All! It’s Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and decided it was about time I made another Mermaid tag.

I’ve had this little cutie from the Amy and her Mini Mermaid Friends coloured up for quite a while:

I have nearly complete the little set of tags, I just have one more mermaid to go.

I coloured the watery background with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and although it doesn’t show in the photo it gives a nice shimmery effect.

By the Sea

Canvass Picture (1)

Morning all. I have a sneaky peak today of some new Cherry Green stamps that will be launching on Hochanda on 26th July at 10am.

I tried something a little out of my comfort zone on this make. I wanted to incorporate stamp into a picture:

Canvass Picture (3)

I found the old canvas picture in a charity shop for £1…bargain. So I painted over it with a mix of emulsion tester pots and acrylics to create the background. I then stamped in the little girl with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and painted her in flat block colours (painting over the details). Once dry I re-stamped the girl to add back the details, which I enhanced with ColourBlend pencils.

Tick Tock

Clock (1)

Evening all. I have something a little different to show you today…..a clock! I have had a little play with some Crafters Companion Colorista goodies to make samples for a QVC Germany TV show that is airing on 25th July.

This pattern would have made a lovely card but I wanted to show it used in a different way.

I started with a Balsa wood circle and the first thing I did was to drill a hole for the clock mechanism. I then painted with crackle paint, before covering with a circle from the colouring page and adding glitter Thicker numbers (which I also coloured with the Colorista markers).

The pages from this book are wonderful and even have glitter on them!
