My first Sassy, clouds and a BIG thank you


This week is going way to quick, please slow down, I actually need to get myself in gear and get some jobs done!

So me and my sister met up yesterday for a little play. Me being me couldn't wait to colour my new stamp and sis being sis more worried about trying a new technique! So we tried clouds, I think you will see it turned out pretty well for a first go! I may have needed to go slightly lower down the image, she looked like she was floating in the sky when I finished, hence flower overload at the bottom. Hopefully now she looks like she is sitting in a field of pretty flowers! So for the clouds we used Die-namics trio cloud die, cut out a few times, we found the medium and smaller ones worked well. Then we masked our image and placed the clouds about where we thought they would go and then with a large brush dotted bashful blue ink around (from stampin up). Remove the clouds and hey presto a sky without too much hassle. Of course you can then keep your clouds as templates to re-use SIMPLES!

And the BIG THANK YOU is for Wend aka The Crafty Monkey who sorted my blog problem out, I tell you I was right stuck with this one but it's all fixed, thanks Woo you are a star and such an oober lovely friendly person!!
