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.

More Mixed Media April - anything goes optional yellow

More Mixed Media April - anything goes optional yellow

I don't often work with yellow so this was a challenge for me,
Firstly I covered the page with Gesso primer.  When partly dry I drew over the page with yellow distress crayon then painted over with yellow twinkling H2O's but the paint doesn't show in the scan
Painted over stencil with moulding paste and when dry sponged with mustard seed distress ink.
Printed out picture and sentiment from Princess Sassy Pants & Co and layered on top.
Doodled down the left side.
Added punched leaves, flowers and butterfly.  Added rhinestones to the flowers.
After I finished this I thought I should have used blue for the flowers instead of the yellow but it was too late to change.

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