Well the scheduled thingy didn't work ...... cos I mucked the time up.
But never mind!! You would have all fainted had I got it right lol xxx
So, following on from yesterday, I decided to do a like for like card using my PMs and also using my watercolour pencils. I thought I would do this for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge, and this week it is a fabulous sketch by Nat - love it xxxx
Here's both cards. See if you can tell which was coloured which..
I think you can tell that the bottom one was done with the PMs cos the colours are more vibrant. But I have to say that there is something soooo relaxing about using the watercolours - I had forgotten just how much. That said, I still prefer the PMs.
What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
The papers are Prima Hybrid and PP, the ribbon and buttons are from my stash and the brads are Poppicrafts. I also used my MSBP and a Cuttlebug folder which I inked over with Stayzon.
Well I haven't long been back and I had a great day at the NEC. I saw lots of fab things and met lots of fab people. Unfortunately I didn't see the God of all things inky and crafty, a certain Mr T Holtz. I had decided that if I saw him, I was going to go and touch him, or stroke his hair - just so I could tell Kath that I had lol xxxx I also didn't see the God of all things flamboyant and fabulous, the very gorge Mr LLB (phwoarr) cos he was only there yesterday (cry cry). BUT I did see his new range and rather nice it is too. But I'd rather have seen him lol xxxx
I have also mucked up the diet good and proper cos I had pie and chips (classy bird) for lunch and I am guessing that they were not the low fat variety - doh!!!! Not only that, I had a mahoosive choc chip muffin for brekkie with a drink of hot choc - yummy!! Such a greedy girl!!
I ought to feel bad, but heyyy I dont :)) But come tomorrow when I get on the scales, I am guessing it will come back to haunt me - every last sweet gorgeous mouthwatering crumb :((
Right then, I'm off to do me Willow Sketchie challenge card - my team mate Heidi has done the most fab sketch and I'm dying to have a play. I may well be back tomorra with some cardy offering.
Ohh before I go, does anyone know a good website that gives hints and tips for beginners for making jewellery please pretty please. There were loads of beautiful beads and stuff last time I went to the NEC and I am so dying to get me some stuff and have a go. But I've never done it before and I just want to see what's involved before I blow the kids inheritance on anything.
That's it - over and out for now xxxxxxx
