Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

It’s your favourite challenge!!

Yep it’s ‘Anything goes’ over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges !! So free your creativity and join in the fun.  This week I have used one of the word art pictures you can get FREE from the shop. IMG_2649b
I decided to go for a monochrome Christmas card , I love non traditional colours and might be doing a few more like this!

The image is a Stampin Up! stamp inked with versamark and then embossed with silver/crystal embossing powder. Card from stock. Black organza ribbon from Joanna Sheen and MS punch.
