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 - pastel

More Mixed Media - anything goes with optional pastel colours 

Bonnie Kohane sent me the link to who is now selling Fairy Hugs stamps in their shop and I received my order of the lovely Fairy Hugs silhouette stamps last week.

I stamped Fairy Hugs Stamps Azalea and Flutter dust onto white card and embossed with Wow clear embossing glitter, added Fairy Hugs glitter to wings, painted background with twinkling H2O paints and punched out with scalloped circle punch.  Layered onto pink card which I punched out with circle punch.
Then layered onto card which I had sponged with distress inks and then sponged over Lavinia stencil .  Stamped Fairy Hugs stamps fireflies and Flutter dust and embossed with Woy clear embossing glitter.
Added silver Thinking of you sticker, 
Layered all onto pink card.

I would also like to add my card to the following:

613 Avenue Create - anything goes with optional twist water colours (background painted with twinkling H20 water paints)

Gorgeous card! Great stamping and wonderful colours and a fantastic scene. I like the sentiment. It´s declares the same emotion the card already itself shows.
Thank you for joining the EAC challenge.
