....a childhood love and a handsome friend.  As a kid I loved the Thelwell cartoons and illustrations so when I saw Crafters Companions new Thelwell release I was soooo tempted! Lol! Well I succumbed and got the CD as it had digi stamps on it and today I had a little play. When it came to colouring it had to be a chestnut, for a wonderful 7 years I was lucky to share many happy times with this wonderful and beautiful boy.......Sovereign a registered section D Welsh Cob who to say the least was a character!! I lost him many years ago now but I will forever remember the fabulous gallops we had :)
Anyway enough of that, or I'll start blubbing over my laptop! So onto the cards....two totally different styles one modern and funky and one much more traditional......
....I printed out the digi stamp onto watercolour card and then masked it off with Pebeo drawing gum and adding a few swirls and drops of gum as well. Then I added the background with Spectrum Noir AquaTints and also a bit of stamping and stencilling before removing the gum and colouring the image with Spectrum Aqua Markers. Now the next more traditional....
...the digi stamp combined with some real stamping in the background and some of the great new dies and stamps from Sheena Douglass. All coloured with Spectrum Aqua Markers.

Thanks for stopping by :)
