Black and White

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA very simple stamped A5 card in monochrome. I can’t remenber whose stamp it is as I’ve had it a while. It is one of my favourite’s as I love trees in all forms, especially trees without any leaves on – I love their unusual shapes and can spend many hours walking in the woods in Autumn and Winter when all the trees are bare. The simplicity of this card reflects the raw and natural state of the trees in winter. I hope you like it x

Back in 5 Minutes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 card using some JOFY stamps on some watered Distress Ink background. I’ve painted in the flowers with Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed distress inks using a water brush. The sentiment is from Indigo Blu – only I think it would be more apt for me to say – “out of my mind …. never coming back”. I edged the topper with Salty Ocean distress ink and then I’ve mounted the topper up on mats and layers of Turquoise blue and basket weave yellow.. Thank you for taking the time to look and I hope you like it x

Love ART


This is the little paper bag Art Journal that I made in March on Leoni Pujols workshop in Bridlington. I hadn’t quite finished it when we left and now that I havE, I thought I would share it with you. The chipboard letters on the front have different effects on them. They have all been coloured with pro-markers and then the A has been glttered with 2 different colours, The R has been sprinkled with bronze and clear embossing powders and heat embossed, and the T has been gilded with “Morris Dance” gilding flakes. The other pics show some of the techniques we played around with during the course of the workshop. They include water ink stamping, micro beads over stamping, water and ink painting with distress inks, water bleaching stamped images, different glitters, gilding wax on embossed card and stamping into warm, heated Angelina. Hope you like them x

Rich in Raspberry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have been absent for a few days as I’ve been away for a few days on a lovely crafting retreat with some ladies from the UK Stampers Network. I had a great time. This is a DL card made recently using a Paper Artsy – JOFY stamp. I really like the JOFY Flower stamps as I think they are so versatile. I made the background using Picked Raspberry and a little Seedless Preserve Distress inks, which i stamped onto my Craft sheet and mixed together with a little water. When it was dry I stamped the flower with a white ink pad and embossed with white embossing powder. I thenĀ  painted in the flower heads with some more Seedless Preserve Ink. To finish off I randomly inked and embossed the edges with some more white ink and white embossing powder. The stamped topper was then layered up on white and Raspberry card and then mounted up on white textured card which has a little disress ink to the edge x

Butterfly Kisses

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is an A5 landscape card using the Heartfelt Creations stamp – Butterfly Kisses. I have stamped the butterfly image a 4 times with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with WOW White Pearl powder. I’ve then used 3 shades of Pink Distress inks over the top – Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. Once it was dry, I’ve used a water pen and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to outline the butterflies. I also brushed a little Stickles – Fruit Punch – in the middle of the butterflies to add a little sparkle x

White Toadstools?

A simple 7 x 7 card – the in vougue size I’m told – stamped using a Woodware Zentangle stamp. I’ve stamped with versamark ink and and heat embossed with white embossing powder to act as a resist to the distress ink. The distress inks I’ve use were Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and a little Seedless Preserve around the very edge. I decided to keep the colour combination very simple, very clean, so just mounted the card on white and purple mats to finish it off x

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn 8 x 8 cards using Indigo Blu’s “Jane” stamp as the main feature which I satmped with Black “Versafine” ink. I then masked her when she was dry so that I could stamp the background using one of Tim Holtz stamps and also stencil with one of his stencils. I used “Mowed Lawn” and “Sqeezed Lemonade” distress inks in the background while the mask was still in place so that “Jane” would stay black and white. Then I double layered the whole image onto yellow texture card and olive green card, mounted on a white base card x
