Hambly Overlays

 Above is the front side and back side of Hambly Overlays and Hamblys Screen prints from Paper Temptress. These are all on sale. They come as 12 x 12 size sheets. I cut them down to 6x6 size so I could easily deal with them since I wasn't sure what I wanted to use.
The bird is from Sweet n Sassy Stamps that was colored with markers. I used the screen print that has Christmas words on one side and plain green on the other. It is paired with Teal Woodgrain Overaly. The square is another Screen Print. For another example of using these go to Paper Temptress blog.

This card is another example using Paper Temptress papers with Hambly products. This cute image is from Birdie Brown and for anything goes challenge.

I am still dealing with foot issues which has brought forth other health issues. I should know more next week. I made an ATC from scraps. It is hard to get a good photograph with all the shiny papers.

So Kind

This card uses Paper Temptress papers with Faber Castell gelato glitter pens. First I scribbled on White Grandee than mixed the colors with water to create the background. The Hambly screen print was done the same and rubbed with paper towel so scroll would show. The flowers were colored with pens too. I learned this technique from Faber Castells Ustream video.  The sketch is for Tuesday Morning sketches. The ribbon is Stampin Up.

Paper Temptress

I love the Hambly Overlays. This card shows Hambly Overlays. I love how they take texture. The Solar White Linen sprayed with mist. The image is from Meljen's Design.
