Happy Rudolph Day to you all! And a cold one it is here in the UK too! Almost feels like Christmas except there are Easter Eggs in the shops!
Here is my entry into Rudolph Day pot today....
Made using lots of Snippets so I shall be taking it over to the Playground too.
What have I done? The velum on the bottom layer has been in my Snippets box for ages. Then on top is a piece of watercolour paper which I stamped with my Hero Arts stamp and then inked with alcohol inks. I did this when I first started with alcohol inks so you can take a guess how old it is. I then stamped a Papermania stamp twice, coloured them in with my Copics, cut out the poinsettia on one stamping, curled it a little and then popped it over the other image to make it 3D. (Sorry, forgot to take a sideways photo for you to see it, but trust me!) I then put little white spots of Sharpies pen on each berry before adding glossy accents to them and the centre of the flower to make them nice and shiny. A Snippet of ribbon and hey presto a card!
I apologise now for not being around much this last few days. We have a new settee arriving at Chez Hettie this week and of course, I wanted the lounge redecorated before it comes!! So out came the paint brushes and all the fun and frolics of removing the old settee into the Den, pictures taken down, curtains down and everything moved hither and yonder!! Let me tell you, painting a wall that is 21 feet long and 7 feet high and is a stone wall, so has plenty of nooks and crannies, is not easy. I have to do the other wall later tonight in order that I can put the curtains back up before the delivery men arrive! Poor Hubby had the unenviable task of painting the wooden ceiling! Let me tell you, I would rather have been crafting!
I hope you have a good week! I am glad to see that Lent is nearly finished so I can celebrate the new settee's arrival with a Baileys or three over the weekend!! Hurrah!!
