Colouring in a stamped design from marie young on Vimeo.
I used my phone and a "Lazy Arm" to take this time lapse. I shall put the image in my journal as it is coloured on Letraset paper rather than cardstock. I had so much fun doing this I went on to make two more, and I can't stop watching them. I've shared them on Facebook and Instagram. I am addicted :-)
The colours I used were:
Warm Grey 2
Spectrum Noir BG2
I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed making the video.

The product of a relaxed Saturday morning. I had a blank tag cut from watercolour paper just waiting for ink. I started by sketching my design in pencil and then coloured it using my Inktense blocks as watercolours. When it was dry I outlined the design, and added some extra doodles using a Sharpie (very fine tip).
I love the Inktense blocks. The colours are just so vivid but you can water them right down as well. I hoped to get several more projects finished but everything I made after this just didn't compare, and then I got hungry and saw it was way past lunch so thought I would tidy everything away and try again another day.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

I used the paper flowers from my previous post to make this simple card for my Mum. I used a card made by the lovely Linda Simpson at Crafty Piece of Heaven as my inspiration. Hers is way better than mine I think!
I appreciate that Mothering Sunday can be a sad day for some and in the past it hasn't always been the happiest day in my calendar. This year I was able to spend the morning with my son and then video messaged my Mum in the afternoon. It was a good day for me this year and I am grateful.
My heart goes out to those who cannot be with their mothers, or who cannot be with their children, for whatever reason.
