Just an INKling

Saturday, 27 August 2016


It's just an inkling, but I feel like it's been a while since I've been in my craft room..  Do any of you find it hard sometimes to fit everything in??  And it's not as though I haven't had cause to make a card, I have (sons birthday), and I did, but actually making it to the computer to blog tipped the time factor over the edge lol!
So albeit a little late (mid July) here is Nathan's card :)  I won't even begin to confess that I've had these gorgeous birds since January, a set I've wanted for ages!


I took the photos at night in my kitchen sitting on my bench, so the light isn't fantastic, but the brightness of the Inktense pencils still shines!  I started by wanting to add some texture to the card stock so coated it with a transparent Gesso, allowed it to dry, then started the scene.  This cute bird is from the Tim Holtz 'Bird Crazy' set, a set I need to add the little extras to!  I stamped him then applied a watercolour masking fluid before doing the background.  I drew a freehand word bubble around an already printed out sentiment (too easy!), and added this with dimensional tape.

The day I took the photos I had baked this loaf - Braided Lemon Bread - Yum! - so I thought I would share :)

Have a fabulous weekend!
Smiles,
Andrea
