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 16

Day 16 at Beccy's Place month of holiday cards was watercolours
I am a bit behind doing this one
Painted a piece of white card with twinkling H2O's watercolour paints.  Stamped Christmas Wishes.  Printed Julia Spiri digital stamp Fairy and Gift from the Forest Dwellers collection onto another card.  Coloured skin and eyes with markers and the rest with twinklng H2O's watercolour paints.  Sponged edge of card with distress ink and layered on top of background card.   Added punched flowers and rhinestones.  Layered all onto pink card.
