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.

Fairy Ink facebook group June challenge - mermaids

The challenge this month at the Faery Ink Facebook group is mermaids

I have layered Faery Ink digi stamp Pearl the mermaid onto Paper from Scribbles Designs blog "Chasing Rainbows" by Decosses Dynamite Doodles.   Coloured with markers. Added sentiment from Gingers House.   Printed out Pearl the mermaid again, coloured with markers, cut out the mermaid only and layered on top.  Added pearl, fish brads and punched dolphins.

Layered all onto white and then purple card.
