Dandelion Wishes


I am delighted and honoured to have been invited as a guest designer at A Vintage Journey.This month Amanda has chosen Watercolour as her theme.Which is of course my favourite colouring medium, it is very versatile and easy to use.Why not give it a try and join their challenge this month.

I created a background with my watercolours and stamped this gorgeous girl blowing a dandelion stamp by Crafty Individuals. I always love to use elements from nature with my projects, so I found some pressed gypsophlia to use for the blowing away dandelion seeds. I am always finding forgotten pressed flowers in between the pages of thick books, where I have pressed them many months or probably even years before!



I wrapped some threads around the base of the card and tucked some more gypsophlia between them.

I finished the card by edging it with black ink, and adhering the picture onto a scalloped edged card.

May all your wishes come true xxx

I would like to share this card with the following challenges.

Lake District Card


It's my sister's birthday at the end of this month, so of course I wanted to make her a special card.For the last 30 years or more she has taken two walking holidays in the Lake District every year. So when I saw Crafty Individuals new stamps of a church, and country cottage, I thought they would be perfect to create a Lake District type of scene in a  3 D  card.



I stamped the  images, and coloured them with my very favourite medium which is of course Watercolours! I also die cut trees, branches etc and watercoloured them too.


This is the card folded down ready  to fit in the envelope.

I think she will like it, at least I hope she does!

Thank you for visiting today xx

Let It Snow

The main image is by Crafty Individuals, I chose this stamp after I was luckily chosen as winner in one of their challenges.

I stamped and water coloured the images. I fussy cut them out and detached the umbrella from the children. I made a snowy background with Watercolours and adhered the children to the texture paste and glitter snow. I used foam pads to hold the umbrella in place to gave it some depth. The Let it Snow stamp is from IndigoBlu's stamp set Sparkle and Glisten

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon.

Once upon a notebook

I recently found this cute little notebook. I decided to alter the cover by using A lovely Teddy stamp by Crafty Insividuals, and colouring her with watercolours.I created the background by using chalks on water I have written a short tutorial on how I did this here. I then added a few spalshes of watercolours.

I tied a lot of pretty organza ribbons onto the book spiral.

Thank you so much for visiting.

Party in the Forest

Yipeee it's party time in the forest and crowns are the order of the day. And of course no party is complete without balloons !

I used a circular box lid for the base which I covered in old book pages. I also cut thin strips from the book to make the tree.

The Crowned Bunnies stamp by Crafty Individuals is just adorable, I coloured them with water colour paints.Some white flowersoft gave them a nice little bunny tail.

I used Magic plastic to make the balloons, that was an experience!

Thank you for joining the party in the forest today.

Wild Poppy Meadow Box

I couldn't bear to throw out this lovely little biscuit box, so I decided to cover it with decoupage papers. I used Wildflower Woods Paperpatch. I always use PVA glue with my decoupage, it is much less expensive than the special decoupage glue and seems to work ok for me.

My favourite flower is the wild poppy, and Crafty Individuals Poppy Meadow Stamp fitted perfectly on the front of the box ! I used watercolours to colour the image.

For a finishing touch I put some lace along the side of the lid. This lace had a double sided tape already on it, which was helpful!

I am going to give this to my sister for Easter, ....... I better find something nice to put in it first !

Thank you so much for visiting.
