Tim Holtz and Brushos...


Good morning lovely peeps!
A Tim Holtz fest today! I splashed about with some blue Brusho and decided it looked like the sea, so that's what it became! All TH products used here. Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments, much appreciated! Xxx

Designs by Ryn, Mermaid and Koi

Hello bloggers!

I've been playing with my lovely stamps from  Designs by Ryn today.  I took a salted watercolour background, stencilled Ryn's Flowing Spirals over the top, then stamped the Koi and coloured him with Brushos.  The mermaid was stamped, coloured and cut out to sit on the card.  Sea bubbles are popped around the edge and finished with white enamel and Stickles.  Hope you like it!  Thanks for visiting and hope you have a great weekend. xxx

Happy Anniversary to me (and hubby)!

Hello bloggers!

It's my 22nd wedding anniversary today! I know people always say this, but where did the time go??

This is what I made for hubby, he doesn't like 'fussy' so it had to be simple. I made a gelli plate background using the distress ink method that Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps demonstrates on her blog. So easy! My gelli has a new lease of life. :)

Thank you for visiting! Xxx

Delicate Penny Black


Hello bloggers!

I bought this lovely Penny Black stamp, Dreamy, recently and decided to have a play this morning. My craft space is still not set up properly, so it's a bit crazy trying to find everything! I wanted a soft background for this delicate stamp, I was tempted to stamp some script behind it but it really is such a fine stamp that it would have become 'lost' in the script. So I opted for a splattery Distress Ink background instead. At the end of each little frond is a dab of glitter, shame it doesn't show up in the photo very well!

Thanks for visiting! Xxx

Another lovely workshop day!

Hello lovelies,

After almost a month without stamping (gulp!), I had a lovely day with crafty friends at another of Eileen Godwin's workshops.  This month we were using Brusho watercolour paints, great fun!

The first card was made with Rubbernecker's Poppy Field stamp...

The next card was made using mica spray, Brusho crystals and scrunched up cling film, topped with a Sweet Poppy stencil...

The final card was stamped with the Mermaid and little bubbles from Lavinia Stamps...

We really enjoyed getting good and inky, hope you've discovered the fun of Brusho paints too!
Thank you for visiting, hope you can leave me a comment. :)  Big hugs! xxxx
