I'm sorry I've been MIA for so long but I've had a really nasty dose of bronchitis that has dragged on, and on..... anyhoo, moan over, I'm back with a tiger - no, not in my tank (for those of you with long memories!) but on my card. I've been beavering away with wor Sheena's wonderful new Indian Collection of stamps about to be shown on Create and Craft TV next week as their new 4 Day Deal.
Here's the big pussy cat taking his ease by the watering hole:
Sheena's drawing s always superb but I particularly love this tiger - what a handsome chap he is! I produced his reflection by using a brayer to pick up the image from the stamp and then roll it off again on to some Neenah Card. I coloured both images with Spectrum Noir Pens.
The jungle background is made with H2Os splodged on to the matte side of Centura Pearl then I stamped the leaf images from the same tiger plate with the same paints and finally embossed the card with one of the A4 embossing folders that you'll also see on Sheena's shows - there's a whole big bunch of them, all with wonderful designs in the Indian theme.
A rather new addition to the range this time is a CD with printable background papers all designed by the Inkoids and they're fabulous! (Well, I would say that wouldn't I but they are - really!)
The shows start on Monday 14 April at 8.00 a.m. and Sheena's back again at 1.00 p.m. Be prepared for lots of wonderful, technique-y demos!
I'll be back tomorrow with another sneaky peek.
Oh, and I mustn't forget to tell you that I heard only this week that I've passed the course and I'm now an Accredited Crafter's Companion UK Demonstrator - am I thrilled or what!
Edit: I decided to enter this card in the Spectrum Noir Challenge for April.
