Went to see Milla this morning and she gave me my birthday pressie which she picked. She gave me a clue a few weeks ago saying "it is something I would use every day but not Friday!" I asked her if it was because I didn't work on Fridays. She said it was. Then going by my track record of my 25 pressies I said "a bus pass"!! NOOOO she cried. then would tell me any more. This is what I got:
How cool is this......... It's made by Red Herring. Same colours as my bag from Freda.
I am using the mouse right now - well not right this minute cos I'm typing but when I need to I am. The mouse just whizzes across the mat.......
Apparently, she has just been dying for me to get it. The look on her face was enough for me tho. She was beaming. I CHOSE THAT - she said about 6 times!!!!
Anyway a change now - I have been playing with colouring in my magnolia stamps with distress inks.
This was was stamped with stazon ink (Versafine was recommended by the fabulous Kim but I didn't have one of those - have most black inks but not that one!). Anyway. I used 300 gms watercolour paper and this is the result. I haven't cut her out yet.
This one was stamped with Archival black ink and using the same colour distress inks which were (if I remember rightly) aged tattered rose for their faces, frayed burlap and vintage photo for their hair and clothes, aged mahogany for the shoes and tattered rose for the socks.The first picture is the second one I did and I think I got a bit more adventurous with that one, colourwise. I have to say I am quite pleased with the result. I feel a purchase of some new colours coming on.
Thanks for stopping by. Going up in the cabin now to finish of some challenges. Will blog them tomorrow.
