This is what's on my desk right now - and it sure ain't Christmas:
As I already had inky paws it was time to play with cloud backgrounds and masking images. I'd finally come across Woodware Magi-film last week:
First I stamped the Penny Black hedgies onto white card using Memento, and then onto the Magi-film using Stayzon (it would smudge otherwise I'm sure). The little hedgies were then cut out of the film and are on the bottom of the page above waiting for the backing paper to be peeled off.
here) then colouring with Pro Markers and a piece of card I'm playing round with for some grass. As always, I made a boo-boo and didn't trim close enough to the images so ended up with a white outline round them. If you have the same problem and you used Tumbled Glass for the clouds, I found that my 'Cool Aqua' Pro Marker was a help to colour over the white patches and a pretty good match too! Well, a blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't notice I suppose :))
And just in case you think it's all organised and tidy here - a swift swing to the right proves otherwise I think!
Before then, I'm off to make another cup of coffee and have a snoop over at Julia's - see you there! I've just had a peek at her desk and it is the most glorious mess - wonderful stuff!! :))
