Wink of Stella Florals

Morning guys
How was your weekend? Mine was lovely. I actually did a bit of crafting as well as some videoing of techniques for Instagram. Watch this space!
Interestingly, I did used to video for my YouTube channel but it was a slow and tedious process. Im all about efficiency and when I wasn't so well, I would struggle learning new tasks.

Todays cards are an example of how vibrant Kuretake Wink of Stella coloured pens can be. I love using them on florals. To get a bit of dimension, I allow the first layer to dry, then go over some of the areas that I would like to see darker. The image above is called Create Something Beautiful. the sentiment is from the set called Folk Art Florals. Both are by Wplus9. The florals below are from the set called Kind Soul from the same company.

Can you tell that I have dies cut 'Hello' out of the
middle of the flowers?
Wow, that really messed with my head as it seemed scary to spend the time colouring it in just to die cut it. I don't think the photo picks it up too well, but in real life its pretty cool.

Well, this week is my last week where I can say I am '40 something'!
Not sure how I feel about that really. Time keeps moving on by and milestone birthdays are a good reminder to make the most of your time with people you care about.
Thats why this year, my family will come to Canada and we will have a big party in August!!!!!

Have a wonderful week crafty peeps and see you next time.
