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.
Not a bird for a change, an unused stamp from a previous issue of
Crafters Companion Inspiration Issue 9 magazine. So I played with the Bright & Beautiful
and Beautifully Grunge AquaTints set to create this card and here it is …
I used old papers and ribbon,
although I managed to hide that and the Kraft background with the stamped and
pink layers on this card. I stamped the
dragonflies with my Versafine ink pad and then coloured them. I deliberately left it overnight to dry
before adding the lime green around them.
I adore the distressed look I achieved with the pink layer, the stamped
layer and by adding more paint and ink layers to the stamped panel. I also got to use one snippet die cutting the
My joy right now is that I
don’t know what I am going to create next!
It could be distressed, shabby or CAS and I love the liberation that I
feel able to create just for me and in whatever style that I am in the mood to
create. It is very freeing for me and I
am loving the ride and the journey right now and whatever the destination is at
the end I know I enjoyed it and loved it 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
