The weekend has flown away from me.
Well it is Sunday morning and I am sitting here wondering where on earth the weekend has gone?? Sometimes it goes just too fast!
The good news is that it is Crafters Companion's 10 year anniversary this week which means that there have been lots of lovely new releases and loads of shows on Create and Craft, which will be going out all through the week.
Tomorrow sees the launch of the fabulous and long awaited Sparkle pens and here is a sample that I made painting them directly on to water colour card. Unfortunately I am rubbish at photography so you can't see the lovely sparkle, but trust me, it is there!
There is also a clear sparkle pen in each set and I used mine to colour the little hearts and put a bit of glitter on my backing paper, as well as colouring my flowers, which I had pre coloured with my Spectrum Noirs.
They are very versatile as they come with a built in brush so you can paint them direct, paint on to acetate and mix or water down , and colour over the top of other mediums…they really are fun.
My card today is a suspended butterfly as you can see and, in case anyone was wondering, the trick to this is to attach 2 strips of nylon thread to the back of the aperture and then you have something to attach the butterfly to. :-)
So, before I go, I would like to enter a few challenges, and here they are:
Bye for now. I am off to make the most of what is left of the weekend. :-)
