Good Afternoon lovely friends,
Big apologies from me, I am a bit behind the plot this week, we have had a massive internet 'outage' (technical term). Apparently Sky customers nationally have all been affected. Funny how used we all are now to having the www at our fingertips!
So, the long and short of it is that I am so far behind, I think I am in front! Hope to visit you all soon, please bear with me :-)
Today's card is a preview of a gorgeous new stamp by Lili of the Valley.
It is Oliver Kicking About which is available, along with the full range of Oliver and Jasmine stamps for pre-order HERE
I have have coloured Oliver with Copics and created a little scene for him to stand. I used my new 'embossing folder and mallet' technique which I described in a previous post HERE. I embossed the background and inked it up with some Distress Ink and a splatter of Picket Fence Ink.
I added a die cut frame and some sentiments, also part of the new launch from Lili of the Valley and available HERE
...and here we are, Rueful Oliver - a true teenager and as a Mum of two now post teenage boys, I feel quite well qualified to comment!... (He's great though ain't he, and so are my two)!
