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.

Inspiration post for Cute as a Button

Hello everyone, it is my turn to do an inspiration post for September for Cute as a Butter showcase blog
I have made a journal page

I have printed Cute as a Button digi stamp IMG00112 Flashdance onto white card.  I separated the sentiment and made it bigger.  Coloured digi stamp with markers.
Drew a pink line around the digi and around the sentiment with Pink Kirarina Wink pen.
Painted the rest of the page with acrylic Vintage Rose paint, leaving a white border around the digi.
When dry stamped Stamp It Music in the air and The dance stamps with Brilliance Ink.  (It doesn't show up very well in the scan but you can see it better on the original).
Painted edges with Pink Blush acrylic ink.

There is no challenge for September as Francesca is on holidays.
