Bloghop 75

Welcome to our blog hop tonight, hope your all had a lovely weekend with family and friends.  If your just come from another blog, its most likely the delightful little mumma, Renee who’s work is nothing short of exquisite.

Each fortnight Teneale designs a sketch for us, sometimes we are seriously challenged and other times its ok.  Do lets go see what I have done.I must say, I looked outside my circle here, opps did I even use a circle? I think not.

I thought I would use a flower for my circle, mainly because I love coloring, whether it be water coloring , pencils or Blendies.  I choose to use Shimmery White cardstock and heat embossed the beautiful large flower from the Beautiful Day Stamp set.  I have to tell you it was one of the last sets I bought because I thought the lines where just to wide.

 

However like all things we change our mind and I now love it and wondered why would I not like this?

I used white embossing powder to emboss the flower, this gave me lovely raised edges for the pools of color to collect in each bud allowing me to get some deep and some light petals.

I then cut out the flower and mounted it on the lovely Petal Passion Black and White designer series papers for a striking effect.  My color of choice was Berry Burst reinker, I think its lovely.

 

Inside was just finished with a part of the flower and colored.

Your now off to see what Teneale has made for us.

 

Perennial Birthday

Hi and welcome to our 74 blog hop, sketch by Teneale Williams, as show below.

If your come from Renee wonder what she has made for us.

 

I decided to go with the beautiful paper that is in the second release of Sale-a-Bration and coloured it with fresh fig straight from the ink pad.  Then wiped it off with a tissue removing some of the ink, but allowing the beautiful silver and gold to show through.

I used silver embossing power on the greetings, positioned with the wonder Stampparatus to position the words.  Made it so easy to line them up.

For the inside I added an embossed greeting, from the same set as the front.

Now your off to see what Teneale has made for you.
