I spent time getting mucky with paints, inks, stamps, and everything else this weekend and I am having a lot of fun, lol! The cherries on the top of all the fun is that I get to keep my MM tag experiments and my blog post/s remind me of how I created them and what I used to create them. I’ve used different elements, products and techniques and I think I have listed all below, lol. Whilst typing my post I’ve become aware that I’ve been using this stencil too often, lol, so I have temporarily removed it because it tends to be the first one I grab when I want to create a background because it’s perfect for any birthday or celebration card or tag experiments too. I have put it somewhere different so that I start using my other stencils more.
If you ever have any questions about how I created this or what I used to create it please ask. I am more than happy to share or create a tutorial: you just need to ask lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
