It has been forever!!





It feels like forever since I last posted. Believe it or not I have not fallen off the face of the earth. Last week after hubby came home I had a couple of days with him, and then I had a workshop on the Thursday, a stamp club on the Friday and left for March break on the Saturday. In between all that was laundry, cleaning and packing. My most pressing problem was what to pack from my stamp room. I am so not good at limiting myself to a few supplies. I kept on wishing that I had a mobile stamp room to take everything with me *sigh*. Well I don't have one. So then I was stuck bringing a measly box ( 12x12x12) of stuff. It's funny how when you are limited you suddenly have to have that item that you haven't used in ages. Well between being stampeded by six children (only 2 are mine), and cooking for 11 each evening ( I actually love cooking) I have not had much time to stamp. So finally I can say that I have 3 cards made . This is the first.
For Sketch challenge 167:
My design team card for Magnolia. I actually can't give much details on the supplies because Magnolia sends the DP and CS for the card.
stamps: Magnolia
ink: Stewart Superior Hybrid in Burnt Umber
Paper: unknown and SU vanilla, Real Red, Old Olive, watercolor paper.
Other: SU vintage brads, SU striped ribbon, SU Oval punches, Caran D'ache watercolor pencils, Twinkling H2O's.
I colored her in with my Caran D'ache watercolor pencils this time. Watercolor pencils are fun because they are easy to transport when travelling. They give beautiful color and spread really nicely. I enhanced them with Twinkling H2O's, glittered the wings, then cut them out and adhered them to the circles which were cut using a colozzle which is great for when travelling.
Oh well, gotta run.
Hugs,
Sophie
