Hi all on this rainy Father's Day (here in the UK). What better weather to stay in and craft?..
So today I made a little creation for the latest challenge over at The Sugar Bowl, following a fab sketch by Maria Therese with the optional theme 'One For The Boys'.
I used this adorable 'Nathan' digi stamp from funky Kits, and coloured him with my Copics.
Papermania Card Blank,
Other papers from my scraps box,
Lili Of The Valley Sentiment Tag stamps,
Tim Holtz Distress Markers,
Whimsy Corner Dies,
Red Copic Glitter Pen (for faux stitching),
I used my Distress Markers to ink up the sentiment stamps. I used 3 colours including Black Soot & Barn Door to give a multi coloured, distressed finish. Just remember to give your stamp a quick huff of breath to revive the ink before stamping.
I am loving my Distress Markers so far. I'd been wondering whether to get them or not for weeks, but eventually gave in and went for the full set (early birthday treat) .
I've also been having a go at water colouring with them this weekend.
I will hopefully show you some finished images using them really soon.
Thanks so much for popping by. I'm off to get all the school things ready for the morning then I'll pop back for a catch up with your blogs too.
