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.

More Mixed Media challenge one - blue

I was excited when Lozzy asked me to be on the design team for her new challenge - More Mixed Media.  I accepted even though I haven't done much mixed media and will have to learn.

It is finally time for the first challenge for More Mixed Media challenge blog
The challenges for 2016 are colour challenges and challenge 1 is blue so any shade of blue to be seen somewhere on your creation

I have done a journal page.  I painted light blue card with Salty Ocean distress paint.  Printed piece of paper from Lozzy's fun paper set and another piece from Lozzy's Marble paper set, torn the edges and layered onto card.  Added sparkly thread across the middle.  Printed verse I found on Facebook and layered on top .  Added a few dots of glitter glam to the bottom sides.  Sprayed dylusion spray on top right hand side.  Added punched butterflies and glitter.  Added punched flowers and rhinestones.
Printed precoloured digi stamp from Deedee's  Angels are among us set, cut out and layered on top.
I ended up with paint on my hands and glitter everywhere.

I hope you will go over to More Mixed Media and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Create and Inspire 36 - anything goes
