Birthday Feathers

I had fun making a birthday card combining the August 2021 Clarity New Design Club stencil with a die cut tag on a card.

Decorated Birthday Candle

I like to use my stamps for decorating plain candles.  Here I used the Happy Birthday stamp set which comes with the Cherry Green's Numbers stamps to add colour to this birthday candle.

WOYWW 646: Countdown to Half Term

Welcome to the weekly sharing of my desk with all the fine people who participate in WOYWW, led by Julia at Stamping Ground.  Please pop over to find out more.

Nothing much new on my desk.  I am between samples and the latest lot have already been posted off.  The daily drawing routine is still going strong and I am joining in with #inktober2021.

I had to honour the new shed roof of course lol.

This week is the last of this half term so next week I am looking forward to a week off and Tilly Tea Dance's workshop!  No meeting after school this evening for me but I do want to make sure that I have no marking to do over the holidays so it may be tomorrow before I visit.  Stay safe everyone and happy WOYWW.

NB I have been trying to leave comments on blogs and keep getting error messages so may not be able to this week.

Woodland Creatures: Stencil Techniques

Today I thought I'd bring together a selection of techniques using the Woodland Stencils from Clarity.  You could use any picture stencil instead though.

#Inktober2021 Round Up: Part 1

 I have been using the official #inktober2021 prompt list this month as part of my challenge to draw every day.  Here is my progress so far.

A nice easy one to get started.
Just like one in my wardrobe that I no longer wear.
I have drawn a few ships already this year so decided on a different interpretation. I had the Danny Kaye line 'the vessel with the pestle is the brew that is true, running round my head.
Another simple interpretation.
This was a major challenge for me so I found a picture to copy and went for it!
I went for a dual interpretation.
My parents have one in their conservatory.
Again, I tried for a different interpretation as I have already drawn time pieces this year.
I hate it when people shake a can before opening it, but it made for an easy interpretation.
Another easy prompt.
A prompt that I had earlier in the year so decided to go with a more cartoon like image this time.
My previous interpretation back in August.
One of my absolute pet hates!
It's not very long since my craft shed had a new roof, so this was an easy prompt to respond to.
I decided to challenge myself a little rather than a tick on a list (a check mark in the US).
I have only been on a motor bike once and was very glad of a helmet.
Memories of school!
I am looking forward to working on the rest of the prompts!
