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.

Post Pals - Putting a Smile on Childrens Faces

Friday 7 April 2023

Creative Fingers 252 - anything goes

 Creative Fingers 252 - anything goes

Our sponsor this fortnight is 
Digi Doodle Stamps by Tindaloo

I tried to stamp digi stamp Sunflower dreams straight onto journal page but it didn't stamp properly so I stamped it onto another piece of paper and cut out and coloured with markers and chalks and layered onto the page which I coloured with Distress crayons and Twinkling H2O watercolour paints
Drew large flowers through stencil and coloured with glitter pens and markers
Stamped grass, sun and butterflies
Added punched flowers, rhinestones, paper flowers and sticker butterflies and dragonfly.

My stamping and colouring is not the best due to my sore hands and bad eyes.

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

Thank you for sharing your journal page - what vibrant colours and considering as you say you have sore hands it's very well done. I'm still not up to sharing my journal pages yet with the world - maybe I should just take the plunge. Thanks for sharing with us a Creative Artiste Mixed Media
