The moment I saw the stamp set “You’ve Got Style” in the new catalogue I knew I needed it – it just appealed to my sense of humor. I also love line art images as they are so versatile to create projects with.
Here’s my first creation – Grandma escaping with her glass of bubbles!
I’ve used the new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create my wall. I love the texture the paste creates. To colour your paste simply add a couple of drops of re-inker (Crumb Cake for this project) to the paste and mix well. The ‘fur’ on her coat and hat have had glue from the Fine Tip Glue applied – it gives a slightly raised look and is glossy. The image is coloured in with the Watercolour Pencils. The sentiment is stamped on a narrow strip of Whisper White then the ends are punched with the new Pretty Label Punch.
I was having so much fun with this set I created another two cards 🙂
With this image you can really ‘go to town’ on your colour combo – I think I ended up using colours from all the colour families. I love the sense of fun in this image. Her hair colour – the blue rinse brigade – reminds me of my Nana Pat who partook of this ‘fashion’ back in the ’70s :). I also added some of the Fine Tip Glue to some of her accessories.
Next up – lovely ‘old lady’ and cat.
I’m a cat person and I really love this cat image – I think it will get used on a number of cards and not just with the eccentric ladies.
Here’s a close up showing the cats eye’s. Adding a touch of Fine Tip Glue really makes the eyes stand out. I’ve also made her shoes to become ‘patent leather’ by adding some glue. If you don’t own a Fine Tip Glue I highly recommend you purchase one.
Well that’s all for now. It’s so good to have my ‘technical’ issues sorted so I’ll be back over the weekend to share some more creations with you.
Keep warm and dry
