Happy Sunday All, if you have arrived here to enter for my Sweet Sugar Nellie Candy just scroll down to the post below, it is still open until Midday tomorrow.
As I mentioned earlier in the week I have been working on a new release, well today I can give you a sneak peek of the next Fabulous CD and Stamp Release from Crafters Companion. When I first saw the set of 8 stamps I was blown away these are just stunning and then I received the CD and realised this is an absolute stunner of a Package, the CD is full of the most cute images, card ideas, Backing Papers and everything else you learn to expect from a Crafters Companion CD. I have kept you in suspense long enough this release is the well known “Paintbox Poppets”, I am sure lots of you are familiar with these fabulous images.
A few years ago I bought some large wood mounted stamps of these images and I must admit I didn’t get on with them at all, they were too large and too detailed, but Crafters Companion have worked their magic and these new stamps are a dream to colour and stamp, they are smaller and a lot less detailed but still retain the unique feel of the original images.
There are 4 Girl and 4 Boy stamps plus round sentiments, so today I thought I would show you one of the Boy Images as there are so few good images for boys around. I have stamped and coloured the image on Neenah Classic Card with Spectrum Noirs (Colours below), the papers are from the CD as are the borders.
The Spectrum Noirs Used are:
Flesh: TN3, TN2, FS2, CR2
Trousers: TB9, TB8, TB4, TB3
Jumper: DR7, CR11, CR7, OR1, TB9, TB8, TB3
Boots: EB8, EB5, EB3
Socks: IG9, IG7, IG2
Hair: EBH5, EB3, EB1
Wall: IG4, IG2
