Getting Organised!

Hello! Just thought I'd pop by to show you this - as the idea of sport 24/7 is not my cup of tea, I'm hoping to increase the time in my craft room.

So, I needed to start getting organised! I love a good colour chart, and I wanted one which I could have on the paper I use. So here it is! I used a lovely open stamp from Uniko Studio from the Lattice Collection, and sectioned my watercolour paper so that I had a section for each colour.

The left of the shape is the marker direct to paper, with the colour washed out the more you go towards the right. I'm going to sparkle it up at the weekend with typeset die cut title - so it can go in my colour chart folder!

Right! Just got to get my act together and make stuff now! Thanks for visiting!! K :-)

Uniko Studio Release Day - Pure Florals : Gerbera

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Uniko Studio release day! Just had to have some inky time with these - the latest editions to the Uniko Studio stamp stable!

Well, these stamps have started doing weird things to my style! I sat with them and just didn't want to put patterns with them today - so this is what I ended up with! I don't normally do orange. Or green! I just don't know what came over me - it all came from colouring the image!

No doubt I will be back to normal next week -  so 'Bear With!'! I will have more to show soon - there are some gorgeous digi papers that I need to show you. Some truly gorgeous colour combinations. Go and have a peek at them at Uniko Studio if you cannot wait!

Here is a close up on some of the details. The pattern on the Old Olive cardstock is the same gerbera image in white. The sentiment has been stamped in white, and outlined in Tangerine Tango.

The colours used are all Stampin Up! Colours - Kraft, Tangerine Tango and Old Olive. I watercoloured the Gerbera on hot press paper using the watercolour markers from SU!. I really loved colouring the image. It was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia to soften the lines. Sometimes black is just too harsh, isn't it?

Well, that is it for me at the moment - don't forget to pay a visit to the Uniko Studio blog, and see the lovely work by the Aimes, Gayatri and of course Bev!

A Little Bit of Vintage!

Hello! Happy Weekend! I've been on a little wander to a cliff top town near me - and have found treasure! Vintage crochet patterns! I'm so happy to find these. Will keep me quiet for an afternoon - probably a bit longer actually! Lol!
