I need to channel Curvy Girl and get the essential oils out so I can chill out and refocus. While I sort myself out, you can watch me colour Curvy Girl loves Essential Oils in my video below.

It’s Sunday with Tamibella

Hi!
Tamara here with you with my latest card featuring Stamping Bella’s image called Mini oddball on a stack of gifts. Is it too early to start with Christmas cards?? My plan to make at least one each month failed completely! I think I’ll be lucky if I manage to make at least 10 cards before the main season. LOL

I used Archival Ink – Jet black for stamping my image on Fabriano 300g HP watercolour paper. For colouring I used Distress Ink pads.

Distress Ink colours used:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
red: barn door
green: mowed lawn
purple: villanous potion
yellow: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade

I didn’t over decorate my card. I wanted to keep it as flat as possible for mailing. Image was cut out with rectangle die with double stitching and then I added a banner and two hearts that match the colours of my colouring.

Sentiment “Dear Santa define good.” comes with the image.

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs, t.

Which is your favourite? They’re all hilarious, but that horse gets me… “Yeah, hay there…hay, very good, I see what you did there…” Also, may I direct your attention to the weather vane atop the barn. Even the weather vane is over it.
