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!

Hello Friend

This card started off as a watercolour sheet of paper. I used the smackin acetate technique (colour on acetate or acrylic block) spritz with water and apply to card/paper. I used zig watercolour markers on the acrylic block and then onto a kaisercraft alphabet background stamp.

I then used some ink to draw circles and stamped over them with artemio stamps. I went around the edges with a black gelato.  I stamped the Lindsey Mason alphabet stamps from the background paper which was underneath the watercolour paper (no waste!). I love these alphabet stamps and the outline around them - you have seen them already and I'm sure you will be seeing them again!

Hope you Sunday is going well!

Allsorts Challenge - Use your ABC
Sister Act Card Challenge - Linky Party
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes

This background is great and I wish I could get this method to look so good-I have tried but failed so many times! You have done a great job. Thanks for joining us at ATSM x
