Teaching Today

I'm teaching this afternoon at The Papeterie, so I thought I'd just sneak in this post before I go and have a shower.
Here are some of the samples I've made over the last couple of days - sorry about some of the pics, I forgot to take pics before some of them went into bags.
I have had this first stamp since it was released and am ashamed to say that it had never seen ink, and the reason it saw ink this week is because the lovely Janice asked me if I had any tips for colouring her hair. This is the best I could come up with - she very nearly got the better of me, not the easiest hair to colour.

Next up are these gorgeous wee girls by Kanban, available at The Papeterie, now I've noticed them before but passed them by - but Willow chucked them in her basket during the week and I am hooked now that I've been playing with them, poor Willow doesn't get a look in.
 Image: Urban Belles - Birthday from Kanban, coloured with promarkers - I have used swiss dots and another embossing folder on white card from The Papeterie. The greeting is Hero Arts.

And last but not least is this gorgeous Kanban Wooly Bear....

I'm also really excited to finally meet Erika today - she's demoing all day at The Papeterie, so if you're at a loose end, you know where to go.

Wow these are great! I especially love the first one, I have been eyeing up that stamp for a little while, my youngest sister would love it! I love the idea of the cord running through the eyelets, goes very well with the image :)

Paula said...

I love the tartan & the eyelets & how all the elements come together in your Goth Girl & as for the Kanban girls - goodness I'd not have looked at them either if you'd not showed them - that colouring on the dresses looks amazing & such good practice for shading. Oh - I can see more stamps I shall need!!!.
