Stamp Fairy, using some new techniques to get a textured furry look on Linda the teddy. So the techy bit... use your blender pen on a scrap peice of fabric, then stamp the fabric on the image where you want the texture... simples really ;) it is subtle but goes to show there's more to markers than blending and shadows.
I hope you share your fave colour combos with us at Charisma Cardz this week as I am in need of some inspiration myself, and let me know if you try stamping textures with your blender or if you have any better techniques I can try ;)

I wish I could remember all the colours I used on the sky, like a numpty I didnt write it down but if I remember correctly it was denim, pastel blue and cornflower for the fluffy clouds and rockpool, duck egg and morning mist with pastel blue as the sea/horizon line. (morning mist is the one I am not 100% sure of so if you want to experiment go for it ;)

I have been quiet for a few months so I will give you an update on what I have been up to. I am starting back at college next week studying for my level 2 Teaching assistant qualification. I am at school tomorrow helping in the year one class so I am really looking forward to that. I have had a card in quick cards magazine (the one on this post) and I have made about 20 Christmas cards so far thanks to Hunkydory doing a lot of the work for me lol. It's been an eventful couple of months lol
So watch this space tomorrow for my news and thanks for reading ;)
