Sunglasses at the ready, lol, ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I can’t believe its Friday already, lol, we had a busy end of the wee and weekend but I didn’t expect it to cause me so much discomfort and stop my play for so long. Anyways I’ve had another wee play with my new Leonie Pujol stamp meant I ended up with something quite unexpected, I think it’s graphic style, but whatever it is I like it a lot and here it is …
It had to be a nice big 150mm square card this time!
It will need a larger stamp but that's okay
Loads of yummy details
I am still struggling to capture the shimmer!
It's a little more visible on this photo

Many of you know that I have been experimenting with my style on and off for a couple of years now. I’ve learnt not to try and box myself in and just go with the flow and try different styles and different looks. I love pastel colours and I love bold shades, so much that I can’t say I prefer one over the other these days. I do really like playing and experimenting and I am much happier now that I’ve tried the CAS style and the fussy style. I can do both now but I do prefer the fancy or fussier style.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
