Hey everyone, how are we all?? Well I got some of the gorgeous Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy stamps this week, I have resisted for so long and couldn't hold back any longer.
So after stalking the postman as he arrived, he delivers me my little package and I was so excited to see my new babies, I had thought all day what I wanted to do with these beauties, but by the time I came t sit down and play tonight my Mojo had vanished!
But I have tried! I sat and stamped the gorgeous Bedtime Snuggles (available here at Funky Kits) about 5 times, just so I had enough copies of her to get me going, I then used my watercolour pencils to colour her in. As a base card I have used a kraft card base and I distressed the edges using sepia ink and a sponge.
I tried as best as I could to make the most of the watercolours, trying to make areas lighter and darker but I don't think I have done it right! I had also treated my self to some lovely new papers today... oh and a bit of ribbon to tie it all in!
Here is a close up of bedtime snuggles, she is so cute!! Love the little teddy too! I did use my pro-markers to colour in her skin as I have not mastered skin tones with pencils yet!
I also used my lovely stamp from lili of the Valley, but i realised after I had put it all together that the colours did not go, so I will change that one later! I used the reverse side of the paper to wrap a bit of ribbon round and tie a knot and then added the pearls for more detail. I distressed the edges of all the papers using my ink pad and a sponge.
This is just a view from the top of the card!
