This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door blog challenge is Sheepski Designs.
Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours.
I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers.
I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some. I opened my shop a month later so I could sponsor challenges and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.
I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby :D
Lovely bunnies sharing their affections: To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Putting It Together
I recently wrote up a tutorial for Through the Craftroom Door's online magazine featuring stenciling and Nuvo embellishment mousse.
For one of the panels, I used DecoArt crackle paste with a Southern Ridge Trading Company stencil. I used Nuvo embellishment mousse on the panel after the crackle paste dried and did it's magic. Check out the magazine article for my step-by-step tutorial on this technique and two more.
For the image I decided to give Crayola's watercolour pencils a try. They turned out rather lovely.
I dry fit a die on the bunnies to size it up.
I die cut the bunnies and used the next larger of the nested scalloped oval dies from CC Designs to cut a translucent white pearl panel for matting. I added a light blue gingham ribbon as well.
Inside, I stamped a sentiment from Unity Stamps with a stamped embellishment from Stampin' Up.
