About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Lacy Sunshine challenge 56 - Steampunk

Challenge 56 at Lacy Sunshine is Steampunk, Shabby Chic or Vintage
Each challenge if you use a Lacy Sunshine stamp you can request the loyalty program stamp for the next challenge.
This month Heather has kindly given us "Steampunk Cindy to the Ball"

I have printed Lacy Sunshine stamp Steampunk Cindy to the Ball and coloured her with distress markers.  Coloured background with chalks.  Layered her onto Steampunk paper.  Added brads.  Layered all onto brown.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Come and Get it challenge - Things starting with B (brads)
