It's been a bit of a slow start to the week .... I'm still getting over the weekend I think!
We had a long, but very enjoyable day on Saturday (the ferry crossing was fab .... both ways. Not too bumpy at all!!) Then on Sunday, it was lunch for ten round at ours, cooked by yours truly!!! Another fab day spent with family and friends ..... good food, nice wine and great company. Oh and the football result wasn't bad either ....... Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1
I've done nothing today though ........ except a spot of tidying up and I've finally got around to unpacking my bags from the trip to Port Sunlight ...... ooops! how did this little lot find it's way home with me ....
Told you we'd had a good day!! It was so nice to catch up with everyone ...... we never stopped talking all day.
Hopefully I'll get some time to play with this little lot!
I'm starting off this week with another Blog Challenge ...... Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge
Here's May sketch ......
and here's my take on it .....
I stamped the little fishy first (from IndigoBlu's Under the Sea stamp set) and embossed him using a clear powder. I then made a mask for him, covered him up, masked off the bottom of the card and used a bubble stencil over the top along with Distress Inks to add the colour
Once the ink was dry, and with the masks still in place, I replaced the stencil and this time I used a clear texture paste through it to give the bubbles a little shine.
Once all that was dry, I added some colour to the fish using IndigoBlu's Metallic paints ...... the shine you get with these is gorgeous. I've mixed the blue and the green colours with a little bit of the Snow White to tone them down a little, and then added a touch of water to them before painting onto the image.
I added my sentiment to the bottom and finished off with a little something on the inside
Well that's it for Monday ....... I hope I'm a bit more awake tomorrow! Early night I think ..... no wait, that's not going to happen ....... it's Game of Thrones tonight! (sigh) Time for another cup of coffee I think.
Thanks for popping by .... have a great week.
Cheerio until next time
