Gathering Together….

20 May

Hello!  It has been ages since I made a blog post and I have some major catching up to do!  I have been busy crafting away but have been neglecting my blog.  I have loads of stuff to share with you and I thought I was start with a new stamp that I picked up at The Cutting Garden.  This stamp is by Penny Black and it is called Gathering Together.

Gathering Together 001I pulled out my Distress Inks and inked up the background and flicked some water at it to give it some interest.  I stamped it a second time so that I could color and pop up the butterflies and used my white gel pen to give the swirls some dimension.

Gathering Together 002It is difficult to see in the photo but I used my clear Wink of Stella over the butterflies to give them a pretty shimmery effect.  I am totally pleased with how this card turned out!

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for peeking in to see what I have been up to!


Hero Arts – Large Blossom

Good Morning and Happy Sunday to you all!

I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy crafting.  The sun is finally out and spring has arrived here thank goodness!  I made some spring inspired cards with the Hero Arts Large Blossom stamp that I picked up from The Cutting Garden.  Have a look…
