Final sneak peek ahead of Sheena's shows tomorrow:

Hi All,
 Well nearly Friday! Just to confirm tomorrow's shows on Create and Craft are 11 a.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. I thought I'd finish with a quick and simple card - the sentiment appealed to my sense of humour and worked well with the image - both of which are from Sheena's new stamp plates ( as I mentioned a couple of days ago tomorrow's shows are a mix of old favourites as well as the new plates and they work brilliantly together:

So without further ado:

I really think the chicks are adorable - they're stamped in walnut stain distress ink and just a damp brush used to pull the colour out. I used Sheena's Curly Swirly embossing folder on the mat and that interesting Hessian...? I nicked a (new) leaf compost sack from the garden shed ( shh!!.. don't tell the best beloved ;-))

Anyway enjoy the shows - the DT have had enormous fun playing with these and if you want to see some more please pop over here to pick up the links to their blogs.

Have a wonderful evening

Just 2 more sleeps! Sheena shows on Create and Craft this Friday

Hi All

Today I thought I'd share this  little box, made with the new King for a Day stamps from Sheena Douglass that launch on Friday at 11 a.m. on Create and Craft. The little papier-mache box was painted with a single coat of Pebeo black gesso and daubed with some Luminarte Silks using a sponge. The swirl is from Sheena's Flying Colours collection.

The crown, kingfisher (coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and pencils and painted with Ice silks) and sentiment are from the stamps launch.

Thanks for your comments - I really do value them :-)

Have a great day

Sheena Sneaky Peek No 1.!

Hi All,

Sheena has 3 shows on Create and Craft this Friday featuring some new stamps AND a few favourites :-) Show times are 11 a.m, 4p.m. and 7 p.m. So if like me you only have Freeview then the 7 p.m. show will be  on the internet ( isn't technology great - when it works! ;-) )

So my sneaky peak combines both old and new and stretched my ultimate pro skills to make the birdhouse!

The chicks and the bird are from one of the gorgeous new plates. The bird and chicks were coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens and the bird house was made using the wrong side of Centura Pearl card and 3 distress inks; seedless preserves, picked raspberry and milled lavender.  The chicks are just adorable!  I'll post a peek with them and some great sentiments later in the week but if you can't wait pop here to find the links to the Design Team Blogs and Sheena's page.

Looking forward to sharing loads more so please pop back tomorrow
