Welcome to the Blog of a Stamp Addict with OCD tendencies.
I mainly make cards but I am dipping my toes into altered art these days.
I'm happy when I have inky fingers and I love this crafty blog land! If you've popped by please leave a comment to let me know and I'll try to come visit you.
Oops it's later than I
realised - it's Saturday - yay!!!
Thank you for the lovely comments on my recent
You are all very kind and I really do appreciate you
Along with trying out a
different watercolour technique I am having another ‘sketchy phase’ right now
lol! Here's a card I made for
several challenges …
I actually checked what papers I was wanting to use before I coloured her!
An unusual look for me - minimal details
A little decoration
A final look
stamped the Kanban lady with the pale grey IP, as I love the ‘no lines’ look
stamping, and I am, unusually, quite pleased with how this lovely can-can lady
turned out! Yes she is one of the cheeky
ladies from the Follies Berger in Paris!
Yep I am quite mad you see – it is this
heat boiling me - I’m not enjoying that right now!
back to the stamping. I have tried the
no line technique with character/people stamps before and I’ve had miserable
results. So I am practicing (aka
obsessing/OCD) the no line stamping because I love the end result. I am trying to improve my watercolouring
skills by using a lighter touch with the paint brush when necessary and ensuring
the image has light and shadow.
do y’all think? I think I am trying to
capture an Impressionist look to the stamping.
Do you think it works? Seriously
I would love to know what y’all think!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and
I really do appreciate it Thank You
I hope you get some time to do what you love to do
