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.

Cute as a Button Inspiration Post

I am a couple days early posting my Inspiration for Cute as a Button

This month I have made a mixed media journal page (and a mess)

I covered my page with Gesso Primer then painted it with green and blue Ecoline Brush Pens.
Sprayed with water and tipped up and down to mix the paints.
Used moulding paste through clouds stencil.  I thought that they we stay white but they became blue after a while.
Used distress ink and gel pen through mini climbing vine stencil.
Stamped grass and flowers and butterflies from Posh Impressions stamp-a-scene set.
Printed girl from Cute as a Button precoloured IMG120 Love conquers all, cut out and layered girl on top.   Printed the sentiment from the set a bit bigger, cut out and sponged with distress ink and layered on top.
Added white flowers with rhinestones.

I hope you will follow the showcase blog and see the lovely work every few days by the design team.
