I am currently what feels like knee deep in pre for our upcoming retreat – it’s next Saturday and although Eimear and I think we’re much more organised than last time (me, especially), there’s still a way to go. I am really pleased with what I’ve got done though, and some things can’t be prepared before my order arrives tomorrow. Keep an eye on our Facebook page – Wiltshire Luxury Craft Retreats – as we’ll be posting there next Saturday. If you fancy joining us next time we will be announcing the date soon – it will be a Sunday in June.
Today I’m sharing another simple card I designed as a make & take for my recent launch parties. I really love the new watercolour pencils that Stampin’ Up brought out in the Spring/Summer catalogue and I’m not alone – in the US they were so popular they went out of stock really quickly – I think they are back now. In Europe we haven’t had those problems but they are definitely popular!
I stamped the chicken From Hey Chick in Soft Suede – you can get this stamp set for free with an order of £45, until the end of March. I then used Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie pencils on the body and Early Espresso for his feet. I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Real Red on his funky hair and added some Real Red to his tail feathers. I used a blender pen to smooth and blend the colours. Where I wanted to add more intensity I just went over with the pencils again. I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink, all this on Whisper White. I layered this on a Pumpkin Pie border and then onto a thick Whisper White base.
Hope you like it!
See you on Wednesday.
