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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Part 2 of the Rick St Dennis progressive challenge at Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St Dennis EDT blog

Those of us who joined part one of the Rick St Dennis Steampunk progressive challenge received a freebie to join part two.

I printed out the free Rick St Dennis digi stamp onto white card.  Painted over with different colours of Tattered Angels glitter glam and left to dry.  When dry coloured bits with red and purple markers.

Today I used my steampunk stencil for the first time and used distress paints onto blue card, but it didn't turn out too well.  When it was dry I embossed with Couture Creations "Replacements" embossing folder and then sponged over the raised parts with distress ink.   Layered the digi onto red card and then onto the painted and embossed card.  Layered all onto red card.

It is a bit messy.   Yesterday and today I am having really bad pain days and really bad headache and am trying to do things to take my mind off the pain.

I made another card today but it will not go onto my blog till Friday as it is my design team card for Creative Fingers.
