Gnome on Swing

Hey all! Today I have something fun to share with you all! I bought this stamp a while ago and just never had/made the time to get it coloured up. But today I have it painted up and ready to share with you all! I have loved Stamping Bella stamps forever! They are one of my favorites to pick up when I have time to just colour, or paint!

I stamped out Gnome on a Swing in a no lines colour, pulled out my Daniel Smith Paints and got to work!

I think he turned so stinking cute! Now I need to go purchase more of these gnomes and paint them all!

As some of you know, the first annual Kraftin’ Kimmie Retreat was this past weekend, and those of you that were there saw this little RACCOON come to life! I was so happy with him, unfortunately the lighting on the photo was slightly off, and I left him to live with Kim so this is what we get. It is fairly close though.

You will see these new images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs in combination with the NEW Granite Grey and Bubbly Blue inks AND the NEW Sweater Weather and Sparkling Snowflakes STENCILS!

You’ll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below so hop around and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!!

 

 

 

Colour Focus – Nickel Azo Yellow

Hey everyone! Today’s colour focus is going to focus on one of my favorite yellows, Nickel Azo Yellow, PY150. I love this colour for it’s bright glowing washes, and it’s rich mass tones. This pigment is a staple in making the new versions of my beloved Quinacridon Gold as well!

I love the variations of colours you can achieve with mixing this, I had a hard time getting all the colours to appear correctly for this one, those purple tones of to the right, are actually more brown with purple undertones, as you will see in the video, but the rest of the colours are true.

I hope you enjoyed the video, of course I have a small product list for you all.
