Branduff & Sophie

I bought this Elzybells stamp because it makes me think of my son Branduff and our "dear" little Border Collie Sophie! I thought it would make a nice greeting for family.
I used a combination of water colours and Pearl-Ex to paint the image. Also, I revisited the world of Shrinky Dinks to make the little plastic labels. I had to stick my head into the oven so many times fussing with the Shrinky Dinks that I was "sunburnt" by the time I finished!

Mouse in the House

I just love the way this Elzybells stamp of a mischievous mouse in a Christmas cracker turned out! I found the strand of miniature fairy lights last year, and I thought this was the perfect project to use them.
