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.

Beccy's Place - month of holiday cards - day 18

Day 18 at Beccy's Place month of holiday cards is Distress Inks

I didn't have any watercolour card so have just used ordinary card.    I stamped Stamp It "Christmas Love" onto white card with red distress ink, then painted it using wet brush and distress inks.  Painted another piece of white card with blue distress ink then sponged the edges with distress ink.  Cut out stamp and layered it onto blue card and stamped Penny Black "Christmas Wishes".   Layered onto red star paper from Christmas basic 12x12 paper pad and then onto kraft card.  Added punched star which I coloured with glitter pen (the shine doesn't show in the scan).   Added glitter around star and around picture.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes covered with pattern paper

Get Creative challenge 2 - anything goes/optional twist use glitter

Just Inspirational - frame it

Christmas Card Challenges 51 colour challenge, I have used 3 different blues, red and kraft.
