Hello from Embsay

A happy "Hello" from the staff at Embsay Mills
Today's project we are sharing is a card 
made with the lovely Rachelle Anne Miller stamps
 by Crafters companion
which you can find HERE

This stamp was stamped on to the crafters companion watercolour card using versafine ink,
 and coloured with a combination of watercolours and coloured pencils.
It was the first time I'd used this watercolour card and I have to say it's lovely to use, I have tried lots of brands previously and i would definately choose this one again
I like how the pencil picked up the texture on the watercolour card.
I also went over the outline of the stamp with a black fine micron pen, this helps the image ' pop ', sometimes you can lose the depth of the outline when colouring with paints and of course it's handy if you miss areas when you have stamped the image.
Finally i used a signo white pen to add highlights, if you don't have one of these...it's a 'must have item' 
The coloured image on the stamps packaging gives you an excellent guide on colours and shading areas which really helps.
The dotty background card is from the gorgeous  Anna marie designs range
this has just arrived in store and online.

So that's all for today
Love all at Embsay Mills
