Sneaky Peek - The Gin Bowl

I always find acetate a little tricky to photograph, especially if I don't want my reflection included.
This is The Gin Bowl - please drink responsibly.

I stamped in black onto acetate, I then coloured the reverse of the acetate with a mixture of Diamond Glaze and dye based reinkers.  I then stamped again onto vellum and cut out the bowl and table and stuck this on the reverse, this helps mute the wood grain down to a softer pattern.
Wood grain stamped onto Kraft card with Vintage Photo inkpad and then layered onto a Gathered Twigs background.

Sneaky Peek - Petunia

Let me introduce you to Miss Petunia Pig
the latest design from Sherry West.
Petunia will be joining us on Hochanda on Sunday 19th at 10am.
In the background is also our new Wood Grain stamp by Judikins.

I stamped Petunia on vellum and coloured on the reverse with pens.
Wood grain is stamped in Spun Sugar onto white card that I pre-coloured with Spun Sugar.
I then cut the image into 1cm strips and edged with the same pink inkpad.
I was going for the look of pink wood slats.

These stamps and more released on Friday.

Happy Easter

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are able to connect with family even if you can't see them in person. 

I chose an image of Tulips as I just love them, I've no idea why but I always have.   The embankment in our town usually has a beautiful display of Tulips but I don't think driving (the short drive) to see them is something we will be doing this year.

Stay safe and be kind
