I have really enjoyed colouring in the cracking images within the Hop To It! release from Simon Says Stamp. Take this fabulous girl from the Work Out set – so easy to colour and thoroughly enjoyable doing so :D I started by stamping her in Memento Tuxedo Black on White card and cutting out with the matching Exercise Girl dies. I prefer cutting out before colouring as I’m fussy about getting the image centred on the die so would hate to colour and then mess the die cutting up by a fraction. This way I know I’ve got a well cut image when I start colouring :D
Having finished Copic colouring, she’s foam mounted onto a collage of patterned papers and sentiment panel all cut with Stitched Rectangle dies. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Navy to match the papers and everything is mounted on a White top folding card base.
By now I should, if everything has gone according to plan, be journeying to meet up with a fabulous group of crafting women. I am so looking forward to spending time with like-minded people, having a good giggle and recharging my batteries :D I have the odd post to share, but things will likely be a bit quieter here for the next few days. Back soon!
