Well, after almost two weeks of no posts I've finally found some time to craft today. I'm still living in a mess, and will be for about the next month while my kitchen is sorted but the majority of the dismantling and boxing up is done, so it's just a case of making a pathway amongst the chaos so I have a route from craft stash to table!
Here's what I've made today, I thought I'd have a bit more practice with my Promarkers...
I stamped the image and coloured it with ProMarkers. I'm still struggling with blending as I don't have enough of the tones of each colour so that's my aim this year, to purchase a few more each month so I've got more options. I then cut some patterned paper to leave a border each side of the image panel. I then had this (not so) great idea that I'd stamp the 'fabulous' sentiment so that it flowed across the three layers. It wasn't the easiest technique but I got there in the end. I started by stamping it on the card base, then I used some low tack tape to hold the patterned paper in place while I lined it up and stamped it again. And I then did this again with the top panel, only inking up as far as the 'u' so I didn't overstamp what I'd already done. I then adhered the panels ensuring the sentiment was lined up and finished by stamping 'friend'. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the drinks but I couldn't capture this in the photo.
