Been Away and Now I Am Back

My that was a long  break from blogging, after our Holiday over Christmas, I then had to dash up to Peterborough to film some new shows for Create and Craft USA and no sooner had I repacked I was off to CHA!

So I thought I would share a card that I created for the stand at CHA today with you all

Mimi in love

Mimi was created using Penny Black's Mimi's Love transparent stamp set 30-270, Memento Tuxedo Black ink by Imagine Crafts and Coloured with Chameleon Color Tone Pens, Purple Grape, Bisque, Bark, and Crimson Red (yes all those shades with just 4 colours).

The background card was created using Penny Black's Clear Stamp Footnotes 30-238 Memento Lulu Lavender ink by Imagine Crafts and Penny Black's Transparent set so Very Much 30-269 and Versafine Onyx Black by Imagine Crafts for the sentiment.

So may plan over these last few weeks was to share some of the fabulous new things I saw at CHA, but we were so busy on the Chameleon stand that  I didn't get much time to go round and take pictures, sorry!  

I did however manage to catch up with many crafting friends and make new one's too, so a girl can't complain.

Thanks for joining me today hugs

Slip Sliding To Christmas!

Brrrr the frost and snow are hitting the ground and care needs to be taken underfoot, especially if you are running around like these little penguins!

More Penguin fun

They were created using Penny Blacks Snow Dancer Transparent stamp set, Gansai Tambi Water colours and imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko. Versafine Onyx Black inks.

this was my first try with these new watercolours and I discovered that if I stamped the sentiment
before water colouring I got a cool shadow blurred effect when the paint was added, see the effect here in this version .
Penguin Fun

Hope these quick water colour cards have inspired you to make some last minute cards, hugs Cathy x
