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!

Fairy Glen

This card was inspired by techniques I saw at Newbury with my new Lavinia and Majestix stamps..I'm reasonably happy with it but we are our own worst critics!

I used DI's for the background, a mix of blues and purples and then used majestix and craftwork cards stamps for the flowers/leaves and the mushroom and fairy are lavinia.

I used liquid pearls with a new glitter recommended by the lady demo'ing for lavinia - it's meant to give it more dimension - it has a funny nozzle and the glitter goes everywhere so that is coming off when I use it again.

I hope you are having a relaxed, crafty and somewhat cooler sunday!

Hi Debbie

Only "reasonably" happy? I would be "very" happy if I had made this lovely creation.

Love your stamp image selection and your colour choices. The envelope looks super special too!

Hope all is good with you and that you have had a nice weekend.
