Good evening to you all in the land of blog
wow have I had a great week :) so relaxing and getting everything organised. But before I move on to all the exciting stuff - I got to show you this
Sam went shopping with Maz on Tuesday, to Tilly's who has now got 60% off everything, so I asked Sam if she would buy all of the remaining House Mouse stamps for me, so this collection cost me all of £30, thrilled and cannot thank Sam and her able assistant Maz enough, for getting them for me - should have cost me £80 whoop whoop!!!!!!! don't you just love a bargain. Cannot wait to use them, although one of these will be in my next candy as it is one I have from another set...........

After all that this might seem a little dull, but maybe the images might brighten it up for you
Today I have created something just for me, yes I know this is not the norm, but intend to do more of this in the future, so relaxing.
So what have I created, well on Saturday before the pint got thrown over me (by accident) Matt said to me, you have made a card haven't you?, well think I did but then sold it, so had to quickly locate an alternative, phew................so in preparation for the next wedding, I made a wedding card
It is a while since I did a tilted easel card too. Think it looks as if I have been drinking as the image is angled too :) The image is by Sugar Nellie and I have to say one never inked till this time, although I have had it a while. The base layer is black pearlescent card, layered with Papermania Capsule Collection Mono papers. The front sentiment is from My Sentiment Exactly the inner one I cannot remember. The image and both sentiments have been air brushed with C3 from the cool greys. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid, diamond stickles has been added for that extra sparkle. The flourishes of diamanté are Prima from the Hobby House. The edge punch is an MS hearts, the black ribbon added and a double bow to hold the easel in place.
I followed the sketch at
but rotated it to fit the image size.
Here are some close ups
The flowers glittering in the top right hand corner
The flowers on the return
and the all important image. This image has in the main been coloured in warm greys the darker grey W7, W5 and W3 whilst the lighter warm greys to contrast W3, W2, W1. Her dress has also been lightly touched with the cool greys C2, C1 and C0. A clear glitter Atyou Spika pen has covered her dress and the veil for a very fine shimmer. G82 for the foliage and a pink Atyou Spika glitter pen for the tiny flowers. Skin tones are E11, E000 and E00. A monochromatic creation.
I hope you like it
