I deliberately did that, put the whole first line in so it sticks in your head and now if you remember this song its going to play around in your head all day like it has mine.
But first we will go to the Succulents card. I haven't used this stamp which is from Altenew in quite a while, actually since the last time I think I stamped it that time on pattern paper too!!! I'm afraid they are not high on my list of favourite stamps (only because I prefer flowers) as I have no idea really what to do with them or what colour they should be. And of course after taking the photos and as I started to do the post I noticed ohhh I need to fix some of my stamping, the tips are missing.
I looked to how others had coloured theirs and used their examples as I don't even know the names to look them up on the internet. But once coloured I was very happy. The paper is from a now pulled apart paper pad (I did this with all my paper pads to put papers in sections - stars/ stripes/ watercolour washes/ flowers etc) so I am more likely to use. Of course this means I cannot name papers but its a cool look and perfect for these plants - yes!!
Coloured with Derwents Coloursoft Pencils - perfect for people with hands that are weak or have arthritis as they are easy to apply layers upon layers. Very happy with end result and love the pots, those blues mmmm mmm. Sentiment from one of my Stamping Bella Stamp sets.
Now my next card came about because of the sentiment.
Ohhh I love it. I come from a house that had a mother that sang all the time, nothing modern of course. All the songs she grew up with and heard from her life growing up and I just loved it and still do. I love to hear the old crooners and the singers like The Andrews Sisters and onwards. There are always things that stick in our heads like 'Sky's of Blue' 'You are Mr Sunshine' and I was looking through Technique Junkies stamp website buying too many stamps and low and behold there it is
Here she comes
Just a-walkin down the street
I had to have it and I had to build my card around it. Well I had this wonderful lady who is a digital image I bought ohh so long ago and forgot to colour, so it was time to do that as she is just perfect for the sentiment - yes??
After colouring her, I then stamped the sentiment but felt I needed something else so decided to add the building which is a Penny Black stamp I have had for quite a while and again have not used for a while. I stamped in pale grey and coloured very small amount in grey.
I cut the panel slightly too thin for the card so added some glitter washi to the side, perfect and see the dots, they are like sequins but no holes. They are all colours and are from The Ton. Love them. Think I need more, just wish they weren't so staticeee (yes not a word but you know what I mean when trying to get from plastic bag and they stick to everything)
