...to all those whose birthday falls into this weeks perimeter! I have completed a card for the Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge, and will make it by the skin of my teeth! The background was stamped with Tsukineko Splendour ink and let dry overnight. I used a stamp from the Victorian Fripperie set for this. I stamped a label from Vintage Label 4, and embossed it with clear EP. I die cut it with a Spellbinders Label 4, and inked the edges with SU Blushing Bride ink. I also inked the edges of the background paper. I used a piece of Gemstones Cardstock to back this and a Martha Stewart edge punch to decorate it. The lot is layered onto a piece of folded SU Bashful Blue card. My sentiment comes from WM Sweethearts and Half Pint Hero. The ink used for this is Momento Paris Dusk. The white twine is from AnnaBelle's Stamps. Kaiser supplied the bling.
For a few weeks I have been going to a painting class - mixed media and watercolour - with Terry Gough, and although it does not look like it I have learned a great deal from him. The following three images are class exercises. I go back in several weeks for term 2!
Autumn leaves - imprinting and masking
Winter colours and mist/rain
