Jubilee Ready

Hello I hope you are doing well, and are looking forward to the upcoming Jubilee celebrations. 

This little lady is very excited for the Queens Platinum Jubilee, and is all ready with her Union Jack in hand.

I delved into my craft cupboard to search for the Union Jack stencil for the background, and eventually found it! I overlayed it onto one of my bubble backgrounds which I made a few years ago.  The post with details about how I created it is here

The little lady is a stamp by Tracy Easson, I added  a little crown, which she loved. I used my favourite water colours and some sparkle pens to give her some colour, and  then fussy cut her.  I was very careful not to snip her as she would have not been very happy! I used foam pads to adhere her over the stencilled flag.I stamped another flag and made a little stick for it so she can eagerly wave it back and forth in delight. I finished by stamping “Queen of Hearts” on some card and adhering with foam pads. 

I would like to enter my Jubilee Girl  into the following challenges. 

Thank you for visiting today, stay safe xx

Classic Pooh Birthday Card

Hello how are you today? I haven’t been crafting for a while as I’ve had two unexpected operations this year. I have a biopsy next week, and I hope that will be it for a while. Today I am sharing a Classic Pooh card. I love E.H.Shepards original drawings in the Pooh books and these stamps have been inspired by his wonderful art work. 

I water coloured the map and used a uni pin fine line pen to add detail.The map is based on Ashdown Forest where all of  the Pooh stories were set.  I also water coloured and fussy cut Pooh, and added some glossy accents to his beloved honey flowing out of  the honey pot which he is lovingly clinging on to.I also managed to use up some of my large pile of pretty patterned papers as a mount 😁

I will finish with this photo taken in the Ashdown Forest some years ago, I am looking towards Gills Lap known as “The Enchanted Place “ in the Pooh books. 

Thank you so much for visiting, wishing you sunny & happy days xx
