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!

Sail away...

was the theme Lauren set on the CMLI Challenge on Craftbubble. Luckily I found the perfect image too use and I think it turned out quite well.

I had just got some new papers and was itching to use them.

I even used the scrap bits that were left over!

I used some bakers twine and fiskars butterfly punch for embellishments.

I lightly inked the rounded edges of the card with memento lulu lavender to make the edges stand out.

I used promarkers to colour this gorgeous teddy.

Colouring mediums - promarkers, derwent pencils and chalk
Card stock from Craftwork Cards
Gems and /buttons from stash
Stickles - Stardust
Papers - Spring Drop by First Edition Papers

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;
