Margaret's Brilliant Baubles !!!
Another amazing bauble
Good Morning Ladies,
You lovely ladies just amaze me with your skills and talents everyday, yesterday we had Karen's fantastic pixie powder background, which looked like a perfect night sky!
Today we have Margaret's FIRST EVER! ' Inkyliscious Winter Bauble' technique and WOW have you aced that technique Margaret! Every one of your three baubles are amazing, you have added so much detail too, I would never have thought of adding the green glitter to the tree Margaret, such a genius touch that works so well as it brings that extra touch of Christmas sparkle to the bauble.
In case any one hasn't seen this technique the basics are .......
You use white ink to brush through a bauble shaped stencil to give the almost 'frosty' look, almost like vellum, before you remove the stencil trace around the bauble with either a white pencil or pen to highlight the shape. You then stamp your chosen scene onto the inked bauble, Brown ink works well as out gives a softer look, you can then use a quickie glue pen or fine tip glue pen to add glitter or 'fluffy puffy stuff' to give the look of snow on the roof and branches of the Trees.
That is the basic idea, you can then add whatever you please to give your personal touch like margaret has.
Thank you so much Margaret for sharing your first 'amazing' attempts with us. XX
Sue's Card for Margaret
Margaret also sent me a photo of the lovely 'quilled' card that Sue made for her Birthday to share with you. An amazing card Sue, you have been making those quilled petals for ages! The green background highlights the flowers brilliantly.
Another card for your mum to treasure, I wonder what your first card for mum was like?? I think we all cringe a little when we think back to our first cards. Well I do xx
Do any of you have any crafty shopping this week?? If so let me have a photo, I have a few bits to confess to! Pat I know you do to, get your camera out!
Janet, it was so lovely to have you pop in yesterday, it made my day xxxxx
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
