Roofle the Reindeer

Morning all!!!

How are we all? Sooooooo sorry that I haven't managed to be around for a few days (well, over a week!) but just when you think that you may have a bit of time, things take over and you end up running yourself ragged. I'm sure you know that feeling well!!

So, what have I been upto? Well, I had a show or two on Create and Craft to get myself organised for, and a couple of demos too, one last Saturday at a fab little shop up in Oldham - Sophies Crafts - and also one yesterday, Thursday, in Ashbourne at Fairways Garden Centre. I had a very busy couple of days, both different types of demos so lots of sorting for those.. but all went well, so I'm a happy bumpkin!

One of the cards I made to take to my demo's with me this past few months was this one below.. just a simple stamped one layer card. I opted to use the boofle-y cute (get it?!) stamp from the new range of Boofle Christmas (available from Docrafts stockists) and I've coloured it in with watercolour pencils.

The one thing I love about doing my demo's is meeting wonderful crafters, and sharing ideas, and the technique I've used to colour this image is one I learned from Kat, a fantastic colourist who works at Craft Central in Derby.. honestly, her colouring is to die for, and we had a little lunchtime tutorial the other week. So, Thank you Kat, you're a treasure!!

Here's the image a little closer up... isn't Roofle the Reindeer a great little character!

And here he is again a little closer up. Pictures were taken on my mobile, so I do apologise for the fuzziness..

Anyway, that's all for now. My aim today is to take lots of photos of my projects and start to get them uploaded a little more often.. lol. Famous last words me thinks, but I do have a few days off.

See you again soon everyone!!!!

  3. Love the stamp and the colours, is that an embossed background or is it gems I can see?

  4. He's as cute as a button. Your colouring is super fab and dreamy too. xx

  5. AHHHH Good mornin luv!!! Roofie is simply adorable!!! AND your colouring is absolutely FAB while mine is still well not so fab! One quick question...and you'll think i'm bonkers but is the outside border part of the stamp or did you do it separate from the reindeer? Love the simplicity of it!
