I've started colouring these BLine Design ladies and I've chosen fairly pastel colours - some of the new Memento inkpads.
I began by dabbing it on with a cotton bud, but then just rubbed the inkpad over it. I discovered the exact same designs but in a 1 inch size and used those to create a black and white frame. the corner designs are stamped on 1 inch Stampbord squares, but taken from the larger stamps. This next image is a close up of my favourite lady I made a background frame for her, this time roughly inking them with the same colours as the central square. I haven't actually done any work on the stampbord itself - I might, I might not, don't know yet!
For those of you who are a bit of an organizational geek like me, here's a photo of how I store pens, brushes etc. (Courtesy of Ikea!)
The idea was to clear my work surface a bit so that I had more than a 6 inch square to work in, but I didn't really succeed! I've discovered I just spread to fill the space!
I'm off Wales for a few days now, so no blogging for a few days!
