Morning Peeps, this weeks Allsorts theme is hosted by Helene and she would like to see 'Baby Animals'. We have a lovely Rare Earth stamp as our prize. I also have some shares from my post over at the Choclate Baroque DT blog yesterday and one for this month Rudolph Days........ right on the deadline!
It had to be dogs or horses for me so I decided on a foal as my baby animal, it's the time of year where several have been born recently in our area and the are adorable with their fluffy little tails.
There is a real mixture of stamps here, Crafty Individuals, Stamp Addicts, Sutter and Art Impressions. With the exception of the birds I stamped everything into place using a mixture of Archival ink and Distress pens, then built up the background using Distress Inks and Pan Pastels, adding colour to the horses and house using DI's again.
My Rudolph Days card used Chocolate Baroque stamps, starting with a masked panel in the centre and then inking the stamps with Distress Markers and spritzing with water before stamping top and bottom on the mask. After removing the mask I stamped a sentiment in the blank panel.
Your will find all details of stamps and products used over at the DT blog here.
And I thought I would share these couple of photos of Eliot and the medals he won this week. This was last evening on day five with two laps to go.
Lots of you know several of our children (and now our eldest granddaugter as well) are athletic and run marathons and ulta marathons all over the world and we are always so proud of their achievements. Well this week Eliot took part in a contest to run five marathons in five days, all took place in the evening when at least it was a little cooler................I know it sounds crazy, but he succeeded so well done to him, another achievement under his belt.
Just thinking about it exhausts me!! Have a happy and sunny weekend all.
