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.

More Mixed Media August challenge - anything goes + option bright colours

The challenge at More Mixed Media this month is anything goes + option use bright colours

I have made another messy journal page

I sprayed white card with Dylusion ink sprays.  Added ribbon.  Printed words in word art, cut them out and sponged with purple distress inks and layered on top..  Printed scan of my 2nd grand daughters self portrait drawing, sponged with distress ink and layered on top.
Stamped flowers
Added glitter, flowers and brads.

There is glitter everywhere now, that is why I don't use it very much.

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

I would like to add this card to the following:

A Inky Mess challenge 2 - anything mixed media

Craft Rocket challenge 21 - glitzy glitter

Inspiration Destination 97 - anything goes

Love to Craft challenge 1 - anything goes

Sparkle n Sprinkle Creative challenge - anything goes with loose glitter (I used lots glitter on my page though it doesn't show very well in the scan, also glitter everywhere else)
