Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
Hello my lovely friends and
visitors, I hope your week is going well.
I am very, very happy using new stamps and playing with my different
colouring mediums and dies! I don’t need
much to keep me happy these days lol! A
first attempt with this stamp set had me creating this very pretty scene and
here it is …
An A6 card
May not be suitable for posting and it will required a longer than usual envelope!
Isn't he a handsome beastie? This flower die will get a lot of use
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I hope you can seethe sunshine through the
I am very lucky that this
card fits the challenges above because it was a case of me playing and
experimenting with new Prima stamps, the gorgeous flower die, two types of
watercolours, a little acrylic and some white stamping card! The flowers are a little larger than I would
like but they are an embellishment opportunity, lol, hiding a very bad attempt
of painting my own flowers with acrylics.
Because of the embellishment opportunity I chose to decoupage the bird
to make sure he was the star and not the flowers. I roughly painted a tree to the left of the
bird so that I could add a branch where his foot comes down – he doesn’t look
right without something to perch on.
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
