Shhhhh!!!!! Have you heard!!

Crafters Companion have the Pick of the Week on Create and Craft starting Friday.

Well this week sees the return of the Paintbox Poppets in the form of Crisalis Classics. All lovingly created by Christine Haworth

Now when I heard it was Crisalis Classics, my heart flipped, as I knew there would be stamps, as well as the CD Rom. Well my heart flipped as I thought ooh goodie stamps, and then when I saw them I thought OMG! How can I colour them and do justice to Christine's beautiful art work.

So off I positioned my self in my little work area to set too, and I just drifted off for a few hours, and when I say a few hours that is no understatement. For the first time in ages I spent hours on colouring and turning the images into cards and projects. I need not have worried, spectrum noir shades made it a dream to colour. Whilst I am no Christine for colouring, I am quite happy with the results.

Here is my first peek!!
I haved used an Embossalicious 8x8 folder (EF8-RGSSWIRL)
My spectrum noir pens.
And have used a die'sire die as the mask to do sky and grass with distress inks.
Here is a closer look at the colouring.


I will be showcasing a card a day over the next few days to tempt you! To be honest though if you like elegant cards, these images are so beautiful it will pop into your mitts no problem.

I know the other DT members have been working just as hard, so pop along and see what they have created.

Feel free to ask questions at any time xxx
