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.
More apologies from me for lack of visits, it’s my normal issue. Luckily I have some pieces that have already
been stamped, coloured, inked etc which makes my life a little easier when
creating a card! I have a male birthday
card to share with your today and here it is …
An A6 snippet buster - no stamping!
I adore these little hexagons!
Of course my 'happy' die needed to be used
Such cute little chipboard elements!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I had a lot of mixed media
gesso and green inks and painted snippets left over from another project and I
decided to die cut them using the die that came in Crafters Companion Issue 10
magazine. In fact this card evolved
after the die cutting, lol, and I have to say that I actually really love this
look. It is something I plan to try
again and differently next time.
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
