Hrmmm

Well hello all.



So I am back at school, and I am exhausted. This trying to keep a normal schedule is really hard on me... my brain likes to stay up late.



I was hoping to get these card in in time to be featured on Sweat Pea Stamps Blog last week, but I didn't. So I will show you a few of them.




This first one is one that you will see that I used last time, but done up differently. I am really happy with how the shading turned out, it is a little challenging when using a waterbrush. The secret is that instead of colouring and blending, use the brush directly on the pencil lead. This gives you a deeper colour and you can then blend it out as you wish. It is important to note that doing this will soften the pencil lead, so either give it some time to dry or press very lightly to start when you colour with it again.




The background paper was made by blending alcohol inks. The ribbon is discontinued Close to my Heart, the white flower is CTMH, and the others are Prima marketing. The pearls are CTMH


Ching Chou Kuik's Silk Dance



I love this card. It is made with CTMH's fall line from last year, Olivia. I will be completely honest and say that I think this is the first time I have ever actually used the My Stickease stickers... The bling on the left is from Prima Marketing. Don't you love the metal leaves?
