INKspired Blog Hop #46

Hello Stampers!

I hope you have all had a great week!  It's awesome to see Lisa Eaton back for this hop and to "celebrate" her beautiful card this week.

As usual we have a sketch to get us INKspired this week,

I was chatting to a friend the other morning and was inspired by our conversation to use the angel from Wonder of Christmas stamp set.  I also used the sentiment from Greetings from Santa and the matching Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies. I matted my image on gold foil cardstock (just to let a little gold show through the thinlit cutout) and raised it up with Dimensionals, to give it an extra dimension.  To match the hint of gold I used a Wink of Stella brush pen in gold to colour the wings

I love to colour, and watercolouring is such a subtle way to colour.
I need some more practise as my angels hair has "bled" onto her face :( 

Make sure you go around the whole hop and check out the rest of the team's creations.

Next up is Renee Lynch

INKspired Blog Hop #45

Did you just come over from Lissa's Blog?  Make sure you "hop" all the way around and leave some love (comments) on each persons blog

Here is our sketch for INKspired #45

I just love it! it lends itself to so many variations!

Well thanks to the Designer Series Paper "Serene Scenery" the line in the sketch is represented by the colour change on the designer series paper (dsp) that I chose this week.  To me it looks like a beach, a serene setting.  
The recipient of this card received some terrible news recently and I thought this would maybe put a smile on their face and let them know I'm thinking of them and if they need me I'm there xx.

I have a few challenges and projects coming up so I will try to blog them for you :) 
Well until next time, it's onto Renee Lynch . 

Be kind to each other
