The Countdown is on...

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.

The countdown is on...

This time next week Rosie and I will be celebrating Hochanda’s second birthday on TV, and launching a rather superb new Designer Paper pad: Indian Summer. We have all loved the Northern Lights so much, that I’m pretty sure that a new collection of similar but different colourways will be well received.

Designed by Yours Faithfully

In fact, we’ve gone one step further, really pushed the boat out, 
and created the same papers in parchment!  

Dave and I have also started watching Game of Thrones.
Bit savage, very graphic and quite bloody, so I spend quite a lot of time with my head buried in a pillow and fingers in my ears.
But the storyline is good, and it is quite addicitve.
We started with the very first series and just finished it last night, when the lovely silver haired girl emerges from the fire as a dragon.

It reminded me of FIRE, the fantastic stamp which Mel drew, 
from our new Elements Collection
Also available individually.
So I picked the very first paper from the new book, 
and simply stamped directly onto the paper with Archival Black.

Repositionable Mask is included.
Add a little drop shadow with ink and one of our stencil brushes.

Like so:

Add a flash of colour with colouring pencils to the queen and her protector. It was sad when her husband died, but the blonde knight isn’t too shabby....

Trim back, black edge with a Sharpie pen, and mount on the back of another sheet of the same.

Seven days to go before they go on sale.
I think I will have some fun with one of the new parchment sheets tomorrow. There is a beauuuuuutiful blue one which would work brilliantly with WATER. Although I am really wanting to try out WIND.... 
Did I mention that we have turned the Northern Lights into parchment too? 
Tune in tomorrow, to see where we go next....

Love & hugs,
