Another fishy tale

Good afternoon, peeps!

Well, there's only one more sleep to go before we can all watch wor Sheena on Create and Craft TV.  Yes, peeps, tomorrow at 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. you'll be able to watch some wonderful demos using these new Under the Sea collection stamps.

Here's another couple of samples that are hopefully travelling along with Sheena as I type heading for the TV studios in readiness for the shows:

These must be two differing species of angel fish or at least painted with differing Luminarte Silks!  The coral and seaweed were stamped with the same paints - I prefer to place a little paint on my craft mat and pick it up on a small piece of Cut 'n' Dry foam to apply to the stamp.  I find I get a more even coverage that way but the paint can be applied with a flat brush, it just depends which you prefer.  This time the bubbles are dewdrops glued down with a little Glossy Accents.  You'll notice that some shells have made another appearance too - I think I must be a creature of habit but......'s something completely different......

There are no shells on this one just shoals of little fish embossed in gold pearl - sadly, it just tends to look yellow from some angles!

See you tomorrow, peeps!

Under the Sea

Good morning, peeps!

If you always wondered what goes on under the sea, I'm about to give you a little peek!

Wor Sheena has been busy drawing again and you should just see the exciting stamps she's come up with this time!  Gorgeous detailed fishy images with silhouette images to match so there's no end  to the interesting techniques you can come up with using this little lot.  Just watch wor Sheena for some action packed demos on Create and Craft TV on Friday 13 December at 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m.  There's a repeat of one of the shows at 11.00 p.m. if you're busy working on Friday.

Anyhoo, here's a peek of the first card for today:

You probably recognise the shells from the last stamp release but they go so well with this new one that I couldn't resist!  You can also probably see the lustre of the Luminarte Silks on the fish and the shells - they are 'proper lush' (to quote a well known TV chef!) and I can't leave them alone at the moment!

Similar techniques but different fish on this one - you'll see that the background card has some of the silhouette images embossed with white pearl embossing powder on it.  These images are great for that as well as using as the foundation image and then over-stamping with the matching line art image.

Wait until you see what my teamies have come up with using these stamps.  Go here for links to all their blog pages.
