Now before I show you my submission, I would like to thank everyone for their comments on my page last week, they are all so wonderful and very touching, and more so those about Wee Man's Index Card art. You made us both smile from (o ear to ear o) So, Thank you ((hugs))
I used a large tag which I covered in Apple Green Inktense pencil and then wet it down. I mixed a nice shade of pink with my luscious Koh-I-Noor paints and drew some balloons on top of the green but it didn't show up very well so I drew some on card, painted them and then cut them out to layer onto the tag instead. I painted on the strings with a darker green. I stamped some bunting to the top of the tag with pink Pixie Dust ink from Memento, (what a lovely name ~ Pixie Dust). Unfortunately tho', that didn't show up very well either, so I painted over it with the dark green. I used my pink Wink of Stella brush to add some sparkle to the balloons, a ribbon tie, and to add some details on the bunting. I also used it to stamp some tulip heads and then painted some dark green stems onto them.
I am also linking this to Tag Tuesday, as the theme there this week is Garden Party and I think this fits quite well into that.
I hope you aren't bored yet, because I have been a very busy crafter the past couple of days and been very fortunate that what I wanted to acheive has gone to plan. That being said, I would also like to share my submission for the Craft Barn's 13th Q & L Challenge with you, where the words this week are Path and or Horizon. We have to use one or both and use a quote and or a lyric in our work, whatever that may be. I am using a quote that has both words in it, and I'm quite chuffed about it, as it is the first time that has happened for me. (I think)
I did a very light sketch in pencil which I erased as I went along with my chalk pastels. A lovely selection from Pebbles, called Basic Bright Shades. I applied and blended with cotton buds. I drew the fence and sheep with a fine micron pen, which I also used for the lettering. I 'fixed' it with cheap hairspray.
That's it, you can relax now, and if you stayed this long, ((extra hugs)) and thank you all very much for looking, and until next time..................
............thanks for popping by to say 'Hi' *hugs*
