Phew! What a week this has been. Our Penny took very poorly with pyometra and had to have an emergency spey. She’s on the mend now, we are so very lucky because we nearly lost her. A £750 vet bill was so not welcome a few weeks after Christmas though. I haven’t transferred my photo’s to the new computer yet but here’s the little madam herself taken several years ago when she was still a pup. Yep, that’s her – “Top of the heap” lol.
So, with all the vet drama I didn’t a chance to get in my craft room till this afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed having a play! I have had this stamp since September and have only managed to get it inked today. My bad.
The paper is exquisite but naturally I had to cover the blessed thing up with as many embellies as possible lol. The little thread spool was a find from The Works, a pack for a quid …. bargain. I just wrapped some paper string around it and hit it with the old gesso.
Copic markers were used, I didn’t bother with pencils for this one. I used:
Hair: E40, 50, 42, 44, Y21 then went back down to the lightest colour to blend slightly
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R20
Clothes: BG75 (my own mix of 75 and 72 that I have called BG73 ) BG70, W3, 1, 0, 00; E47, 44, 43
Lots of Wild Orchid Crafts deliciousness on this one (product list at end of post)
And a peek at the inside – ugh the photos are so dark, roll on light nights!!
And that’s it from me today, have a good week
