Guest Designer for The Craft Barn


As its Tando week over at The Craft Barn's Blog I have been asked to design a card using the very useful Tando Mini's.  These have been especially designed to use on cards as they are a lot slimmer than the rest of the range.  But being slimmer does not mean they are flimsy, they can still take a battering of paint hahaha!  I have gone for one of my favourites - the bunnies - soooo cute!!!!!

For the background cut a piece of watercolour paper 5 inches square then using watercolour paints colour  a sky and some grass as shown.  You don't have to be precise as the stamping will cover most of it.

Using the Crafty Individual CI-226 stamps and black Stazon stamp the different flowers to mostly cover the grass.  Add the butterflies.  Using watercolour paints again pick out a few flowers & the butterflies with a little colour.  Lightly gesso the larger running rabbits from the Tando Mini Pack then when dry paint with Fresco Paints. I used Irish Cream with a little Chocolate Pudding added to it.  Paint the tails in Chalk and add a little highlight to their ears and dot their eyes with a black pen.

From The Craft Barn I used :

Tando Creative Mini Rabbits - Crafty Individuals Stamp - CI-395 (similar to the one I used) Alphabet Stamps - Watercolour Paper -Koh-I-Noor Watercolour Paint PaperArtsy Fresco Paints -

Thank you for looking today ;-D, hugs xxx
