Be The Light




I recently received this gorgeous stamp by the super talented Phyliss Harris, she is one of my favourite artists.
I used watercolours, texture paste and flowersoft  to bring this little girl to life. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are having an enjoyable December. We hope to decorate our Christmas  tree this weekend.I have lots of gifts  to wrap up too.  No handmade tags to go on them this year though! 

 I am still waiting for my treatment and MRI scan....

Country Holidays



Hello, let’s hope the sun comes out for the Bank holiday weekend! Today I am sharing a 3D frame I made for my  sister’s  friends birthday. They have taken numerous holidays together each year in the Lake District since well... forever. So I wanted to create a Lake District type scene, and these  Crafty Individuals Stamps are just perfect for that.




She has two grown sons so I stamped coloured, and fussy cut two boys and a couple to walk along in the scene.

After stamping and fussy cutting the sheep, I added some white flowersoft to their coat. 

 

I also used some flowersoft for the hedges, and added in some dried flowers. I used twigs for tree trunks, and finished by adding some tiny bunting. I just have to wrap her gift up and attach the tag I made previously and it will be already for her birthday.


Thank you for visiting and whatever you are up to this weekend I hope you have fun! My wheelchair has been making a terrible grinding sound recently, luckily it is my indoor one, and not my other newer one for going out in,  so I may make it out to have a lovely Pimms and lemonade outside the pub, if the weather is nice enough. xx

Gothic Arch Challenge



For the last few months I have been taking part in the Gothic Arch Challenge  at UK Stampers. Gothic Arch refers to the shape it does not have to be gothicky (thank goodness)This months theme is “in stitches” I wondered what I would create, so I looked through my old wooden stamps, and came across these treasures. A lovely teddy and bunny with stitches on them. I decided as they had been packed away for such a long time, they needed a good wash so I washed them and hung them on the washing line to drip and dry!

I used glossy accents to add drips of water falling from the furry friends.They are quite difficult to see in the photo but there lots of them there.I used green flowersoft on the branches, and also added some faux stitches around the edges. 

The foam stamps are coming away from the wood, so I am undecided if I should remove them from the wood to save space or glue them back on... 

I would also like to enter my In Stiches  Gothic Arch into That’s Crafty Stitch In Time Challenge

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope all is going well with you xx

Party Sheep




Hello how are you today? Sadly I have still not heard from the winner of the giveaway, I have posted on her blog and Facebook to no avail. If I have still not heard by Monday evening I will randomly select another winnner. I do hope that the winner Linda  is ok.

Today I have made a tag to tie around a gift for my sisters friends birthday. Oops I haven’t made the gift yet...... it is going to be a 3d picture in a frame. My sister and friends go on several holidays in the Lake District each year so I wanted to create  a country scene. The Crafty Individual Stamps are perfect for this.

As this is for a birthday the sheep of course had to be holding balloons! I used Watercolours for all of the colouring, and added texture with Flowersoft for the hedge and white Flowersoft for the sheep. I crushed up some Prima Art Stones to make the pathway. I finished the tag by tying on  several different shades of green raffia. 

Thank you so much for visiting today. Wishing you a happy, and hopefully sunny weekend xx

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.

Spring Deers

I stamped Forest Friends by Penny Black with black Archival ink onto water colour paper. I love water colours and I used them to colour the beautiful deers.

I created a background with dye inks and stamped a tree branch, then added some pink flowersoft for blossom.

Thank you for visiting.
