You keep me anchored

Smthing a bit different today.  It’s my DT card for Noor! Design and this one pushed the boundaries I can tell you.  It’s also (sort of) got me out of the pink phase.  When I first saw the stencil I had no idea what to do with it, but ended up having a total blast playing and really love how this turned out.

Now then, I coloured this image absolutely ages ago, so can’t remember the colours.  However I think these are what I used:

Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E44, 42, 40
Blue: N5, BG75, 72, 70
Green: N5, YG03, 01, 00, 0000
Shells, seahorse: E33, 31, 30

The leaf shape is on the stencil, love how it works with the flowers and still keeps the sea theme.  I used the new Dutch Doobadoo Wavy Mask to create the bubbles, they look awesome peeking out behind the flowers

I’ve had such fun with this month’s release – it pushed my boundaries and kept me away from pink!

Picked Sweet

Seeing as I dug out some of my older papers that I was terrified to cut in to last week, I decided to revisit some of my favourite images as well, and Picked Sweet from Whimsy Stamps is the first.  I had forgotten just how much I love Elisabeth Bell’s work …. my bad!  So, I had a good old play in my craft room yesterday.  I ended up making a couple of cards, it’s amazing what I can get done when I plug the iPod in and listen to a book whilst working.  The day just flew by, and it’s a win because I don’t feel guilty sitting with my nose in my Kindle all day. 

I used the delish Anna Griffin papers again, the same papers as my last card just a different colour way.  See, I told you I had a problem ha!  Ugh the card looks skew whiff, it’s not – it’s the pants photographer.
