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!

I am the shadow

A Mixed Media Colour Challenge has picked a lovely colour palette this week so I decided to have a go!

I decided to use this lovely octopode stamp my sister got me - she is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with zig art watermarkers.

I put some gesso on some chipboard pages I found hiding in my stash and went over it with pastels. I then used versamark and white embossing powder for this fabby tim holtz stamp and wenr over it with the zig marker (very watered down).

I did some background stamping with memento london fog but the grey doesn't show up so well.

I stamped the sentiment in london fog - except for the word moon , which I stamped in staz-on purple - I went around the letters with staz-on purple then a black marker pen. I then put some purple gilding paste around the edges.

The sentiment is a line from the Halloween Town song from a Nightmare before Christmas.
I am entering this page in the following challenges;

Pan Pastel Challenge - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Colour Palette

Hope your Sunday is going well!
