I feel like I'm finally getting back into the land of the living, phew we've all been so rough on and off. It's just left us all really shattered. I've been working but it's been so tiring. I only work a few hours a week, well out of the house that is, there's always a million and one bits of paperwork to sort, so it's been good that I've been able to catch up on a bit of sleep in between :o) Makes me sound old lol
Anyway, enough of that, here is a little card I would love to say I'd whipped up, but the reality is it took FOREVER to make!
The idea has been brewing for a while, then I spent an evening trying to colour in the little racoon, (still learning how to blend my copics and working with greys to make it look a bit black lol!) then another evening messing around with masking, (Thanks Britta for your fab tutorial!), then more time finishing it all off, but I'm really pleased with the end result, it was worth it! This is for my little princess, she's been feeling so poorly lately I thought it would cheer her up!
The challenge over at Lawnscaping was to make your own patterned paper using stamps, I used little mushrooms on mine with some versamark. I was going to colour them in but it took away from the picture so decided against it. I loved playing with my Lawn Fawn stamps though and you may notice a few Hero Arts ones in there too!
Today has been a FAB day, I won a $20 DeNami gift certificate, got happy mail sponsor stamps in the post, more of that in a later Play Date Cafe post ;o) a crafty parcel from my wonderful friend Savannah and a couple of other exciting but can't share yet things! Such a great day! Here's to many more of them lol
Back tomorrow with my Play Date Cafe card! Until then, happy stamping!
