Morning all. Hope you are enjoying the beautiful
sunshine, like we are having here in Suffolk.
Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.
I love to read and treasure them.
I have two pictures today, as they are both very
different but finished on the same day!!
My first is a card using a Honey Doo Crafts stamp.
I used Distress Ink mixed with glycerin, to make
the piece of white card pink and lightly mottled.
I stamped the image with Versamark clear ink
and embossed with white Wow Embossing powder.
I then coloured the flowers, using Copics pens.
A bit fiddly using 3 shades and used a
Colourless Blender Copic pen to remove any
ink that went on the white embossing lines.
Now this little fella I just adore!!
I made him, using my Needle Felting
wools and needles I bought from
Frankie and Sidney, details at the bottom
He is 5" high and 4 1/2" wide
or 12.7cm high and 11.5wide.
It did take a few days to make it and
made it up from just seeing a picture on line.
His back legs were the hardest and took me
2 goes to get them right.
I am now going to make another one.
I just sent a picture of him to a
couple of friends and one, Aileen,
wanted to buy him from me!!
Sandy (X Craft Barn owner) said
'it was probably the cutest thing I
have ever seen!!' Also, her husband
thought he was real!!
So I must make notes of what I did,
before I put him in the post!!
Going to take a few pics of all angles too.
They sell the most beautiful wools etc.
They are free delivery mostly and a
pleasure to deal with.
If you're too scared to just 'go for it'
as I did, with a few animals and want to
have a try, they do sell kits.
Looking forward to seeing your makes.
