Another weekend already? Where do the weeks go? Anyway, thank you for dropping by today. During my productive crafty session yesterday I put the finishing touches to this little beauty.
She was one of my "accidental" purchases that fell into my virtual basket while looking at the Funky Kits Sale in January. I can't find her in the shop so am guessing that she's out of stock at the mo.
As well as making an attempt to use forgotten dies, I am also challenging myself to try new stuff and in this case finally had a go at painting with distress inks.
I always look on in absolute awe at the wonderful art work achieved by Annette and Squirrel (among others), and although I do not have the bottles of re-inkers thought I would improvise by squishing DI on to my craft mat and pick up with a Koi water brush. Imagine my delight when I discovered I could do it!!
So much so that I am even showing a close up of my effort.
The papers came from an American crafts pack that I picked up in TKMaxx. The banner is another of my
abandoned unused dies by Cheery Lynn and the sweet little stamp is by Technique Tuesday.
