good morning it’s friday

i hope your all well with all the rotten weather we are getting here in UK at the moment

i had plenty of time to pass while it was throwing it down

we had power cuts with the lightening brilliant  but all restored  now

so what did i get up too


i used Spectrum Noir Pens

from Crafters Companion on to Neenah for this topper

i  have remembered to save a list of colours i used

here they are

TN1- TN2- FS2- FS3-  CR3- CR7- IG1- IG3- IG5- IG7 – IG9 – black- BT1- BT4- BT5- BT7- CR8- CR9

GG1- GG2- EB1- EB2 GB3- GB5- GB8-  CG1- CG2- CG3- HB1- HB2- OR1- OR2- OR3-  LY1-

and a water colour using the same stamp 


i stamped onto Crafters Companion water colour paper

used  winsor and newton water colour paints to colour her in

i love this colour combo of orange green and turquoise

thank you for popping by today

hugs linda xxx

a little water colour for this afternoon

what blooming weather we are having here !!
i think we have had a bit of everything thrown at us today
anyway  seeing it’s been horrid i thought i would   water colour paint the Geisha
from Jayne’s new stamps not done much water colouring of late
the nice thing with water colours you get to add  back grounds once your finished the image
will make it into a card later got to get some tea prepared in case the power goes off again
hope you have missed the thunder and lightening where you are
