Designs by Ryn and Hobby Art

Hello peeps!

My mojo has returned, and boy am I glad it's back!! Today I made a background with Distress Inks and the acrylic block method, that is I put some ink onto an acrylic block, spritzed the block with a little water then plonked it on the card, very technical!! Next I squidged (and yes, I do mean squidged 'cos the paint had gone a bit dry!) some Inka Gold paint in jade through the beautiful Maidenhair Fern stencil from Designs by Ryn. Actually, I quite like the rough texture that the dry paint gives, even if I was a bit grumpy about the paint drying out!...

Then I stamped the dear little birds from Hobby Art across the page, and coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gold glitter pen. I added a few of my latest fave accessory, sequins, and away we go...

Hope you like!! Thank you so much for visiting, big hug! Xxx

A stunning card Wendy. The colours and birds are gorgeous. You are a typical crafter, we don't want anything to go to waste, even dried up paint. The effect is fabulous xx

It looks great with you. I love how you've built it all up to a lovely composition with elements from different suppliers used. Great colouring of the birds.

Hey Wendy :) That's wonderful about your mojo returning! Just in time for Spring! Glad the Inka Gold paint worked out despite the initial disappointment. I love it when I discover neat effects by accident! Nice placement of the birds in relation to Maidenhair Fern. Many thanks! Xoxo
