Flying high


Today I'm sharing another card using one of my favourite stamps from StempelBar. I love the challenge of making one layer cards which look like they have some depth to them.


The base oval was printed on a gel plate, before stencilling on top with Distress Oxide ink. Careful masking and positioning of the girl and the border strips gives the impression she is just about to drift out of the frame. White gel pen and grey Promarker were added for highlights and shadows.

Sometimes you get an idea that looks complicated but actually is very easy to do. This was quite the opposite! Quite fiddly and lots of detail but doesn't look it. It kept me out of mischief for a while.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have an 'uplifting' day xxx

A gentle return


I'm back after a couple of months of no posts. I have been doing some crafting and painting, by that I mean starting things that I haven't finished! 

One project I did get finished was a mixed media canvas.

I started by painting a 25cm sq canvas with Fresco Finish paints and stencilling in some background.

Next I coloured white card by 'swooshing' through Distress Oxide ink...

...and die cut leaves, flowers and a vase. It was A LOT of die cutting!

I think it was worth it in the end.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day, hopefully with a little crafty something thrown in xxx
