Welcome, Easter has been and gone, now the kids are on school holiday, WOW how time flows. Last weekend we attended Stampin’ Up! OnStage at Luna Park, where we get to see the new Catalouge for 2018/2019.
It’s always a great and often exciting time for us, especially this year as not only did we get some great stamp sets, we also go to see the beautiful new colors coming on the 1st June.
Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us this fortnight, I loved it.
As soon as I had received this stamp set, THANK YOU Stampin’ Up!, I know I would love to color him with my Blends. Lets go check him out.
How stinking cute is that, I’m calling him Hippo, and I think he’s a little like me………lol
I choose to us Light and Dark Smokey Slate Blends and added extra shading by using the Blends Color Lifter. My little bird was colored with a new color called Dark Pineapple Punch Blends and his beak in a touch of Calypso Coral, under Hippos feet I used light Old Olive Blends to add a touch of grass.
I am so happy with how he turned out. The colors used were Whisper White, Pineapple Punch, Soft Gray and Dark Gray.
The stamp set is called Animal Outing, and as well as him there is a sweet Giraffe head a Kangaroo with Joey in his pouch as well as a branch with a little Foggy on it.
I used to color the branch was the light crumb cake for the branch and touches of light old olive on the leaves with some shading of the crumb cake on the leaf. The little frog was Pineapple Punch with a small touch of Old Olive on this trunk.
Little secret about to be revealed, when Teneale was younger she had the nick name of Froggy, so this to me belongs to my froggy, as together WE MAKE A GREAT PAIR. Its her birthday tomorrow and I think she would like this for her birthday card. What do you think?
Your now off to see what Teneale has made for you.
