With Love & Thanks.......

Good morning!

Here's something a bit sweet don't you think? Zinouk du jardin by Carabelle-Studio.

I took a couple of photo's so I'll talk you through it, lets take our journey....

Right, I started with a piece of Sheena stamping card and painted a couple of colours of aquatints on to an acrylic block, mixed the colours up a bit and then laid the stamping card on to the block - aquatints cover so well.  I had a couple of runs but that's fine, I like those! and left it to dry (doesn't take long at all).

I then sprinkled some water from my finger tips, let it soak for a moment and mopped up some of the paint.

Then I stamped all the images from this stamp set and coloured them with alcohol pens and the flowers with sparkle pens too.

I then stamped some bubbles (from old pot lids) and highlighted with a white pen and a charcoal pencil then finished with glossy accents so that they looked like real bubbles.

Added Zinouk and a couple of sentiments "Dream" and "With Love & Thanks" - both Inkylicious - the "& Thanks" are Sentimentally Yours by Phil Martin.

Matted and layered in lovely bright yellow and orange - very happy with that! Nice and sweet and jolly!

Also check out some really lovely new stamps that Crafty Individuals have launched here - well worth a look:-
