Christmas Soon!


Inspired once again by the marvellous Pinterest, I have made these three cards. I couldn’t find my sheet music papers anywhere (argh!) so l used my music stamp. Aged it up with Tim Holtz Distress ‘Vintage Paper’ inks and added the silhouettes. On the card without music, I used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to age the paper. It worked quite well.

Now I have to decide which of our friends would like these style of cards!

Umbrella Man


Hello again…

For the longest time now I have been making my own backgrounds, which means all my papers mostly just sit in my drawer! Here’s another using water colour paper and distress inks. I inked an acrylic surface (I used a plastic die case cover) and sprayed with water. Then, to coin a popular phrase, ‘smooched’ the acrylic over the watercolour paper. Picking it up and replacing in different areas. I dried each layer using a heat gun, and then I finished it by wet stamping some water spots stamps on one of the cards. I just inked up the stamp and sprayed a little water onto the stamp. I made two cards this way. Hope you like them.
