Baubles


Saw the idea for ho, ho, ho baubles on Pinterest ages ago! 
Finally got time to ink my new Stampotique images up, plus a splash of grey ink splats by PaperArtsy in the background. Letters by Hunkydory range 'For the Love of Stamps'.
So building up my Christmas card stash gradually over the year.

Fence



Had such fun making this project..what was going to be a mini book ended up as a birthday card!
Turned some lolly sticks into a fence, inked them up a bit and then added some Stampotique images to bring it all together.
The ink splat is from a coffee set by HunkyDory. I am pretty sure the happy birthday sentiment is my Magnolia! Talk about an eclectic mixed of Stamps!

Flowers


...for a change in my little art journal. The background started with me trying out my new Gansai Tambi watercolours and I sploshed all the shades of green on the paper. Some finger painting and scraffito to create the flowers. Lots of doodling and stamps to finish it off.

The flower in her hair seemed like the perfect finishing touch.

WIP

Working on finishing one of my 2016 quilts and trying hand quilting for the first time.
This quilt was a 2016 quilt along by Janet Clare.
Determined not to sign up for anything else before I finish my two UFOs!
Wonder will I stick to it? Will probably be Easter before I finish them both...lol!

Everything's coming up...


roses! One of the brand new stamp sets launching today by Hunkydory and can be seen on a Create and Craft with the first show at 9am. I really enjoyed playing with this set of clear stamps. My first card uses Promarkers to colour the roses. I am entering this card into the Passion for promarkers and I love Promarkers Anything Goes challenge.



Here is a second card using the same stamp set but this time on Kraft card stamping with Walnut Stain Distress inks and some paper piecing. I am entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday New challenge.
