Rain Ahead

This is an old Stamp-it stamp I have had for many years. Stamped onto kraft card and coloured in with watercolour pencils with the aid of a waterbrush. The grass I have gone over with a green texter. Dark Chocolate Liquid Pearls and Black Accents used on drovers whip. Blue chalk and white paint used on sky. Clear Crackle accent applied over center of wording circle.


Dust Storm

Same stamp obviously, stamped onto white card this time and sprayed over with Distress Stain Sprays – Tumbled Glass, Rusty Hinge and Forest Moss. The only thing I coloured in was the cows using a watercolour pencil.

It was my son’s 30th birthday recently – goodness that makes me feel old! He was born in the year of the rabbit, so I thought it would be cute to try incorporate some rabbits onto his card.

“Hope” is my most favourite word in the English language. It is what keeps us going through our ordinary days, never knowing what tomorrow will bring, but anticipating that wonderful things could be about to happen. Keep the faith.
