Hello Everyone, I do hope all is well with you and yours and that you're not feeling the cold too much with this yet again change in the weather.
Thank you all for your visits and comments, I love reading them and appreciate the time you take to pop in. For anyone who does visit, please leave a comments as I can then pop in to your blog and see what you make.
My goodness the daylight is stretching, I've just closed the curtains at 5.30, and just a smidgen of light left, yep Spring is around the corner.
There has been loads of excitement at Chocolate Baroque as they have launched new stamps, some of you may have watched Hochanda and seen Lesley crating gorgeous pieces with them. I treated myself to the whole set, not something I do normally, but I could see such possibilities for all of them and there was the flexi buy on, so it would have been silly not to have taken advantage. Anyhow here is my first card made with the Star of the Show.... The Kingfisher;
I've incorporated stamps from two CB sets, Kingfishers Song, which includes the birdie himself and the bridge, the cottage comes from The Gift of Christmas and instead of a snowy cottage I've made it an anytime one. The birds are from Inkylicious and I felt just gave the scene a finishing touch.
I've coloured with Kuritaki Gansi Watercolours and put a little Star Dust on the water. Mounted on to Royal Blue Centura Pearl card.
I wondered if the perspective of the cottage wasn't quite right, but I've gone for it anyway, what do you thinks. Alistair thought it was very "nice"...... never has he used that word before, he went on to explain that it was rather "flat", it wasn't popping out. I'm open to constructive criticism, as I'm very new to creating scenes and I am conscious of having difficulty in making my colours more vivid.
Well it's mince and tattie tonight, done in the slow cooker as I've been over to puppy mind, I can hardly believe that Rowan had only been with us a month, 7th January she arrived, It seems like sh has been here of yonks.
I'll say cheerio for now, have a lovely evening and see you soon,
