Bildmalarna DT card / Sketch Saturday

>> Tuesday, 11 August 2009

Phew, what a hot day we’re having in Kent today and so far its been very productive.  We dropped Thomas at nursery and went straight to Bluewater for a bit of shopping (new bedroom curtains) and lunch.  And then came home and sanded & painted all the downstairs window sills.  So now I have about 1/2 hour to make this post before I need to pick Thomas up.

I was thrilled when Lalla asked me if I would like to continue as a guest designer for their new release of stamps.  They arrived late last week and I have to say they are all gorgeous plus you can now order them already mounted on EZ mount.  I chose to ink up Mimosa  Umbrella first.  These images are so lovely to colour.  I experimented by using a bit of Black Soot distress ink in the areas where I wanted shadow and I’m pretty happy with the result.

Bildmalarna DT card

The layout is from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge.  Here is a close up of Mimosa.  I used some liquid gloss around her feet to create a puddle.
