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.

Cute as a button Inspiration Post

It is my turn to do an inspiration post for February for the Cute as a Button showcase blog.

I have done another mixed media journal page.

I coloured page with blue and green Ecoline Brush pens.  Sprayed with water to create texture.  Drew hills with pink Ecoline Brush pen (which became dark purple when painted over the the blue.   Painted over cloud stencil with texture paste.  This didn't show very well when dry so I painted over the clouds with white paint.  Stamped over the green with grass stamp.  
Punched leaves and added flowers which I coloured with red marker.
Printed Cute as a Button stamp May the holy spirit be with you.  (This is one of two stamps in the set)
Coloured stamp with markers, cut out and layered on top.
Printed sentiments from We are 3 Be-attitudes sentiments set cut out, sponged some with red distress ink and layered on top.
