I'm now doing my post-sample making craft room tidy-up. It's a bit more exciting than usual though - we're looking at buying a bigger TV for the living room so the old 32" one will be going in my craft room. Exciting!
The last card I blogged was my Woodpecker Card that was stencilled using just part of the Lone Tree Stencil.
This one uses the whole stencil and the Gelli plate.
The Gelli print was done in the same way as my Gelli Print Country Scene.............
......however this time I covered up the sky so that I had a clean area for inking the clouds. It gives a very different look to it.
I must confess that I did cheat a little with the woodpecker and he was stamped on a separate piece of card and stuck on.
I coloured a piece of card for the border with the same colour red ProMarker that I used on the bird. That way you don't have to worry about matching colours.
Now that my samples are made I really must start on my personal Christmas cards; I still haven't made a single one yet. Don't tell anyone but I was out shopping with my friend Connie yesterday and I was looking at them in the shops. I didn't actually buy any but it might yet come to that (I can't believe I just admitted that).
Lynne goes off to apologise to all of her beautiful Christmas stamps..................
