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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

Not Just Cards November challenge - anything goes

Not Just Cards November challenge - anything goes

Our sponsor this month is Fabrika Fantasy

I painted both pages with black gesso.
On the right side I mixed moulding paste and white paint and painted over star stencil.  Stamped music stamp with white Brilliance ink.
I made a mess of the left hand side,  I tried to spray Dylusions ink over a stencil and it just ended up a mess.  I wiped the ink off and tried to paint a sun and fire with gold acrylic paint.    I must not have left it to dry long enough as the red ink mixed in with the gold pain.
Typed sentiment that Jen Leeflang had on one of her cards that she made up (I asked her permission), cut out and layered on top.  Added rhinestones.
Printed Fabrika precoloured digi stamps Fire Fairy and flying elf, cut out and layered on top.

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
