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.

My inspiration post for Cute as a Button

It is my turn to do the inspiration post for Cute as a Button
http://cuteasabuttonshowcase.blogspot.com.au/

and I have made another journal page


I covered journal page with white gesso.  Used distress stains and distress paints to make a rainbow background.  Used moulding paste through stencil, when dry sponged over with different colours of distress inks.
Printed out precoloured Cute as a Button digi stamp Love my Copics, cut out and layered on top.
Added brads and sentiment

I hope you will go over to the challenge blog and join in the April challenge Easter

  3. Confession time: I've never ever played with gesso. But, after looking at what you've done with it to create such a creative rainbow background, I think I might have to do something about that. Thanks again for playing along with us at Words 2 Craft By. :)
