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 Bubbles

Thanks to my crafty pals I have been trying some mixed media projects and recently bought some pastels to have a go with. I have used pan pastels at our craftathon but thought I would get the (much) cheaper version. It's such a quick way to get background colour. I gesso'd a piece of card and used greens and blues over it and then stamped on top. I used a mix of inks - the versafine were ok but the memento's were not too happy. 

I used this lovely Lavinia stamp as our group's challenge this month is Bubbles as sadly CraftBubble (our crafting forum) closed it's doors. Our rather the moderators (Origin) stopped giving a toss about it months and months ago and the site was so full of spammers it was ridiculous. They have encouraged us to join their other crafting forums where I'm guessing nobody moderates and they don't give a toss about anything apart from traffic/money from advertisers.

It's Friday...I don't care - if they had let the users moderate they wouldn't have had any of the problems they did...Anyway - it's now officially the weekend because our little alarm has just announced it..Happy Weekend Peeps!

I am entering this card into the following challenges;

Cute Card Thursday - Things with Wings
Creative Inspirations - Fairies
