A card and a tutorial..of sorts!

Hya friends!
I was bullied 'persuaded' by my teamies on the All dressed Up DT, to do a tutorial on the sky I did for the Purple Onion card I did a few days ago.
(you can see it HERE).
I've never done a tutorial in my entire life and it will show in this tute! LOL
It's all photos 'coz I haven't got a tripod set up for my camera yet!
I hope you aren't in a rush!
My technique is a combination of numerous Youtube vids (Especially THIS one) and blog posts.
Thank you people!
Here goes!! 
Be kind!





My friend Christine Levison reminded me to tell you of a tip I gave her...
'Don't press down as if you're ironing a cotton sheet,
gentle circular movements is all you need'.







And finally! Phew!!
 Purple Onion 'Treeline'
Digi Stamp Boutique 'Christmas Tweet Family'
Coloured with Copics

I hope I haven't bored you to death.

Not bored at all Viv, lovely step by step illustrations, I prefer it this way to vidoes cuz I can take time to read what you have written whereas I don't always retain what I see in videos LOL.
what a delightful card it is too :o)
Love, Jackie xx

FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS card.... LOVE that little image which btw... you have coloured fantastically!!

And brilliant tutorial which I'm sure will go down very well... but don't forget that all important instruction you gave me... 'don't use the blenders like you're trying to iron a cotton sheet!!!' That was the important bit for me!! hehe!

I thought your tutorial was very good. I like that there was not a lot of reading in it. I feel confident I can do it from your guide. Hugs, joann sassy raggedy
