I have missed you all! 😦 I haven’t been able to blog … because I have had no time to stamp … and have nothing to show you!!! (I do have a few special 21st cards & a 50th for my sis … but they have to wait until the b’days are past! – Don’t want to spoil the surprise!) After being out today with mum (a doc appt … and some b’day shopping) … I arrived home just before the courier came up the driveway to deliver … these ……….
Ooooh!!! How exciting!!! 😀 🙂 My fingers were itching to try them out … BUT!!! … I had no blending stumps. When I ordered the pencils … I didn’t realise that you needed blending stumps to use with the “Gamsol” mineral spirits for blending the colours!!!!!!! Yes … I am new to this … so I hope you will all cut me a little “slack”! 😉 I have since ordered some from an art supplier here in AUS … but they have yet to arrive. Any way … here is my first attempt at a card using my new “u-beaut” pencils … and NO blending stumps!
So … you can see I need a little practice on ‘light/shade’ … and so the flower isn’t how I would like it … BUT … I am pretty tickled with the result! Don’t the colours look great on Crumb Cake card (Kraft)! They almost seem to pop! The card was a scrap … but I managed to turn it into a little thank you gift card! All the details are on my recipe!
Well … now I have to run … but I will be back again … ONCE I HAVE STAMPED (AGAIN!!!) Hugs xxx
