Scientifically speaking.....

As promised, here is the second scientific card.


"Shelve it" by Clearly Besotted


I truly couldn't believe my luck when I saw this stamp was being released......the image was perfect for Hannah's card!

It was stamped with medium grey ink and coloured with Caran D'Ache Supracolor Soft pencils on kraft card, one of my favourite combinations.


Clean, simple and ideal for the scientist in our family!

Thanks for visiting today, I will be back soon with some of the stitching projects I was working on during harvest.

Scientific Crafting!

As some of you may know, my son Ben is a Chemical Engineer.  Well, his girlfriend is currently studying for a PhD in Chemistry, so I am always looking out for stamps and dies that are appropriate for these two!

Here is the card I made for Ben to give to Hannah!


Instead of boring old white paper, I decided to use some graph paper for the background......well she is a scientist after all.  Adding some pastel splats with The Crafters Workshop - Mini Splats stencil.



I could not believe my luck when I saw the scientific scrabble tiles - how cool are they!!
Your Next Stamp - "Periodically Nerdy"

If you have enjoyed todays post and wish to keep up to date with my colouring and crafty projects you may wish to follow me on Instagram and my Facebook Page as I tend to update these more regularly than my blog.  

I will be back soon with the second card I created

Until then
Happy Crafting

Eek it's a snake!

Well, hello there, yes I am back - harvest is over and I've just about caught up on family stuff so I am in the studio catching up on editing photographs of cards I made ages ago and never had the chance to post online.

So let's get the ball rolling with "Coiled Snake" from Whipper Snapper Designs!

I adore the expression on this guys face, don't you?



As someone who's reached her half century I guess I'll be receiving more cards with snarky sentiments like this one in the years to come, this particular stamp is from Taylored Expressions - Another Year Older


I've also been inspired by Kristina Werner @starofmay who has been creating some amazing artsy envelopes to decorate mine too - I used Whipper Snapper Designs - "Snake in the Grass" on the front...... it's not on a par with Kristina's creations but hopefully it will make the recipient smile!

I opted to colour the snakes with Derwent Lightfast Coloured Pencils......these are relatively new Oil-based Coloured pencils, made here in the UK, woo hoo!!
Strong pigment, combined with good blending qualities make them a pleasure to use.


Until next time
Happy Colouring
