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.

Inspiration post for Cute as a Button

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

I have done another journal page in the journal I am making for my second grand daughter.

I covered journal page with white gesso, then sponged with Coffee bean brilliance ink.  Stamped some stamps from Limited Edition clear stamps Art parts around the edges.
Stamped more of the stamps on a piece of Steampunk paper from Bearly Mine designs.  Painted over stencil with moulding paste onto the paper and when dry sponged some of it with distress ink and layered paper onto journal page.
Printed Cute as a Button Steampunk Evelyn, coloured her with markers, cut out and layered on top.   Cut out the sentiment that comes with the stamp and layered on top.

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