Here is the sketch that we had to work with, designed by Teneale Williams, I  was excited to use it was I had done a water-colour class this week and wanted to try it out for myself.  Don’t you just love learning something new?  Yes even at my great old age…………

bloghop-44Here’s what I made and I love it, its was so relaxing to do.


Barbara Williams Water ColourI use the Penned and Painted Stamp Set on shimmer White Cardstock, using white embossing power to stamp down the flowers and leaves, one at a time.  Have you found how when using versa mark on white, it’s rather hard to see where you have stamped.

Here is a closer look at just how it looks, where you can see the beautiful details.

Barbara Williams Detail shot

I choose to use some of the softer colours of Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz, sponging over each of the area’s with a sponge. after I had sprayed it lightly with water.  Next I used the aqua marker to highlight the flowers, you can make these as light or as dark as you want.

Your now off to see what Teneale has made for you.  Don’t forget to leave some comments for the girls, we all love comments.

INKspired Blog Hop 43

Well here we are again, Blog Hop 43 and racing towards Christmas Celebrations.  You might have come from Louise page, if so welcome, if your starting here then don’t forget to hop around each of the blogs and explore what they have made for you.

blog-hop-43I had played around with some ideas on using the little mouse set, yes I bet you love it also.  My eyesight isn’t what it used to be so sometimes its worse then other times and after trying some water colouring that didn’t work for me.  I might add I was trying to hold a magnifying glass in one and colour with the other.

I gave this up and decided that this sketch would work for a age birthday and I had just the right little girl to receive a age card.

INKspired Artists Blog Hop 42

Welcome to the fortnightly bloghop for the INKspired Artists lead by Teneale, and I can tell you I didn’t love it at all.  If your just started here, Welcome and your most like come from the pink girl, Louise who always seems to be able to produce in pink.


I must have, no I did sit for hours going through the catalogue trying to find a stamp set that would fit the sketch, it need to be a shape and then a sentiment to the side.  Well that’s what I thought anyway, lets see if I got it right.


Looks ok, yeap got the circle and the words to the side.  but hey wait, does it look right?  Lets go look at the whole card, will we.

Well I think it might have fallen over, see the top is the side with the paper, yet the shape and sentiment are the right way.  Oh well, lovely card anyway.

Hope you enjoy it.

Now your off to see what another young talented stamper is upto.  Renee’
