Welcome to my blog. I am married to Tim with a young son who's antics are relayed within this blog as well as my experiments in all forms of papercraft, including cardmaking, scrapbooking, artist trading cards (ATC) and inchies. I hope you enjoy what you see and read and I look forward to reading your comments.
I design for Quirky Crafts
I have been lucky enough to be nominated for the following awards
Poor Alex had a big bump this morning. He fell straight over backwards and cracked his head really hard on the ground...poor little thing. Fortunately he recovered well after lots of cuddles and had a good day at nursery. Here he is looking cheekily up the stairs at me! Just love that cheeky grin.
Crafting wise I have been making some trading cards for various swaps I am involved in. These first two used distressing inks and crafty individual stamps to make a spring scene so fit with the Crafty cardmakers 'distressing' challenge and kaboodle doodles 'spring' theme.
I also made these ATCs using some new techniques with the distress inks . The butterflies were masked to retain the white areas, and the dragonflies were made with versamark ink dusted over with mira pigments. I don't know how well the shimmer shows up on these photos. As these are distress inks they also count for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge. Have a great weekend everyone,
