Some Sneak Peeks!

A large post today....*grin*

Cornish Heritage Farms has a new Friendly Kritters by Tom Allen, Frosty Friends. This will be available next week, the 21st.... AND... a whole new line called "Scene It"! You know how I love to do scenes....I'm gonna have so much fun!
This first one is called Beacon of Hope and will be available the 24th.

Stamped Frosty Friends, masked and stamped Perfect Plaid Scrapblock™.
Colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Inkssentials white gel pen.


This is a stair step card, sponged with distress inks, colored with Copic markers with Inkssentials and Stardust gel pens for accents.

A simple, one layer card colored with Staedtler watercolor pencils. The oval was made by nesting Spellbinders Nestabilities ovals and dry embossing.

And last, but not least...coasters...or, they could be displayed as a picture.

This is still a learning experience for me. I need to find the right medium to use to color on these!

Stamped with Timber Brown Stazon ink and colored with reinkers...which take forever to dry, IF they ever do! Maybe I don't have the patience to wait....even with a heat tool! So, I just gave them a shot of Krylon clear sealer! Hey, worked for me! *wink*

For the edges, before the clear coat, I used a sea sponge and Walnut Stain distress ink.


Tomorrow we're supposed to take the llamas to another nursing home, I'm waiting on confirmation from the activities director (watching the weather). Hopefully I'll get more pictures to share this time!

I also dyed another batch of yarn the other day! So keep checking to see how it knits up!

Thanks for stopping!

Dawn, those glossy tiles *are* hard to color on. I used to use Fabrico markers, but you have to seal them really well. You might try the tumbled tiles - those are stone and actually take watercoloring really well. They'd be gorgeous with your reinkers. Just thoughts. :) Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous projects, Dawn! I'm always in awe of the scenes that you are able to create. The stair-step card is gorgeous. I also love the simple, one-layer lighthouse card because it is so simple, yet elegant. Thanks so much for sharing all of your projects ( and your immense talent ) with us!
