10th Wedding Anniversary Present

Apologise to anyone missing my blogging.

On Friday last I was taken to Sheffield to "Hobby Craft" here I made Polly "Artfulwings" very proud. The browsing lasted almost 2 hours and I felt like a little girl in a sweet shop again. On arrival we saw lots of sale signs (instead thought - I can get more for my money)

I found some lovely flowers from the wedding section, I treated myself finally to one of the new crafters companion fairy stamp sets. I got a lovely scrap book, for all my pages (thank heavens for this as the floor was getting a little crowded) I found the K & Co section and chose three lovely 12 x 12 stacks (double sided) Although I got absolutely loads of things my best buy was the manga pads for using the copics marker pens on.

I have practiced all weekend. I stamped every single stamp I had onto several pages. Shading is so easy, (well spent six hours practicing over the weekend) I finally managed to stay in the lines and got a fantastic sun tan in the process. It is like floating on silk and the shading ability it amazing.

I now need to cut out all the images that I think meet the grade and use these on some new cards. Will show you soon.

Polly mentioned the manga pads, they sounds really interesting to use. Hopefully I will get into watercolouring at the weekend........ Hear you had a bit of a spending spree!!!!!! We did the same at Dyan's (Art From The Heart), but why not eh? Look forward to seeing your cards soon Kate.
