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

More Mixed Media March challenge - anything goes with optional green

 More Mixed Media March challenge - anything goes with optional green - use a little or a lot

I put blue and green distress inks onto a stamping block and sprayed it with water.   I then wiped white card over the block.
I sponged circle with white brilliance ink.
Stamped Lavinia stamp LAV524 Forest Scene with green distress ink.  That didn't show up very well so stamped part of it again with green die ink.
Stamped Lavinia stamp LAV375 Fairy buttercups a few times with Brilliance galaxy gold (they don't show up very well in the scan either)
Stamped Lavinia LAV556 Flutterbies and LAV097 birds with die inks
Stamped Lavinia LAV222 Felicity with VersaFine Clair ink pad and embossed with Wow embossing glitter. Stamped Lavinia 216 toadstool mini with distress ink.
Added dragonfly brad, flowers and Best wishes gold sticker
Layered all onto green card.

I am so slow it took me nearly 3 hours to make this card.

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

I would like to add my card to the following
