Friday Feature

Hi all!  It's been a long time since I posted so don't be shocked that I'm back lol!  It's not as though I haven't been crafting, because I have, and it's not because I haven't had time, because that wouldn't be right either, it's more that I've been playing with a different bobbie so I'll share more of that down the track!

This week over at AnnaBelle Stamps we have our regular Friday Feature and this week it's the set Fanciful Flowers.  I love what you can do with silhouettes, and I love my Inktense pencils (which I know you've heard before), so what better way to get back in to the swing of things than to combine both?!?

I started by stamping my images with light shades of Distress Inks - Scattered Straw and Shabby Shutters - then I coloured directly on to the images with my pencils in shades of orange and yellow.  Inktense pencils are permanent once dry so between coats let the images dry then you can build up your colour without disturbing the first layer.

You can just make out in the close up shot the background stamp I've used over the completed panel.

It was such fun crafting today I can't tell you!  I'll have more of a catch up next time with plans for AnnaBelle Stamps!

Have an incredible weekend and if I don't get back before next week have a blessed Easter with family and friends!

Hugs for now,
