Any way for now lets show you the new colouring using Shena Douglas stamps a little bit magical and i really love the stamps an if I do say so my self the colouring lol.

I hope you like. I am going to do these again and do some thing with them as this was a test and i stamped the bricks over the birds lol and in case you wanted to know the bricks come as separate stamp so had to mask of the big tree door way and it took some time to cut the mask out but worth it.
Keep on crafting.

Just wondering if any one has any good advice for me and if any one knows of some company's wanting dt member please let me know.

Blending with different colour tones with spectrum noir pens

Hello to you all and I hope I find you all well and crafting.
Today I watched this very good colour-a-long tutorial video on the spectrum noir website done by Jennie Black. It shows how to blend different colours from different colour family's together.
I coloured this lovely stamp I have I do believe it was bought from a charilty shop as its a wood mounted one, also the sentiment I used BT5, CG4, CT4 and CT1 then added ribbon, pearls, hat pins and a little metal butterfly. The butter fly has been coloured twice and then I cut one out and stuck it over the first just on the body so it lets the wings pop out.

I hope you all enjoyed this and do hope to do some videos soon, and please check out the video I have linked it.
Keep crafting.

Colored a Michael Powell stamp

Just a quick show of a new stamp I bought and coloured with the spectrum noirs.
It took a very long time as lots of components but i think it worked out.

Keep on crafting.

Sexy summer.

This card was made using a free stamp and paper kit from Acid Drops & What Nots.
I loved colouring this little stamp with the spectrum noirs and also had a go at pallet blending were used DR3 then got it to mix with CR7 using a tile and putting DR3 on to it then scooping it off with the CR7 and this helps to blend 2 different pens together.

Keep up crafting.

This card is done with a swalk stamp called Sweet as summer, papers from summer days paper pack and coloured in with the spectrum noirs, I also added pearls and ribbon.
