Can I tell you a secret?

Not really lol, that’s the name of the stamp I have used today, by Sarah Kay for Stampavie.  Still one of my favourites even though it’s a golden oldie.  And I’m afraid it’s pink again, I found this neglected First Edition Sweet Owl pad and well I just had to use it now didn’t I lol.


Going back to the big pictures, I prefer them even if it means you have to wear your mouse wheel out lol.  I used some of the new German Glass Glitter that Wild Orchid Crafts has in stock in the most delish array of colours.  I used brown and light rose 100 grit on the flowers.  Loving the texture and bling.


Copics and Prismacolor pencils were used to colour this sweetie:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E53 on the girl and E29, E27, E50  on the boy (used these for the boots as well), dark umber pencil
Dress and shoes: R85, R83, R81, RV000 Tuscan Rose pencil
Dungarees and shirt: E43, E42, E41, E40, E29, E25 Warm Grey 70% pencil
Background: BG000, E000, BG0000
Ground shadow was done with Warm Grey 70% pencil


Card Recipe:
Stamp:  Sarah Kay Can I tell you a secret; sentiment Elzybells 
Paper: First Edition Sweet Owl pad
Embellies: Seam binding, button, twine, Prima Swirl, 25mm rose (my fave size!!), 15mm roses, 10mm roses, tulips, metal embellishments – corner all from Wild Orchid Crafts
Tools: Doo Hickey Tilda Lace Die, Nestibilities Labels 11

I’ve popped this card on eBay

I start with my long awaited hospital appointments today, got 1 today and 3 tomorrow and 2 next week, wish me luck :)  I will be so happy to get my life back on track again with hopefully a solution to end the constant pain without being zonked out on a cocktail of painkillers.
