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!

Watercolour Cards

I decided it was about time I made some cards, I went back to a technique I had used previously called smackin' acetate. I put my zig water colour pens on an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and pressed it on my paper.





I then used my versamark pad and black embossing powder to get these striking results - I tend to forget that it sometimes looks even better than stamping!

FAB makes, I must revisit smacking acetate now you've reminded me - loving the more vibrant of the two, so VERY Part-ay!
