By The Sea


I love the sea, although sadly I do not see it very often, and then I only see it from a distance as unfortunately beaches are not wheelchair accessible, but at least I can see it for which I am very  grateful. 
With the sea in mind I created this 7x7  card. The background is from the gelli plate. I inked up the gelli plate and then placed the netting from some tangerines over the top, and it left this nice netty pattern. I cut some pieces of bark for the seagull to stand on, I must admit I don’t like seagulls as one of them swooped behind me last year and snatched my sandwich right out of my hands!  



I also added some art stones and few tiny shells, some stamped and some real.To finish off I wound some twine around the edge of the circle.

The stamps I used  are by Crafty Secrets.

Thank you for visiting today, have a lovely day. Hugs xx

Little House On The Prairie

 

Earlier this year I was very lucky and won the challenge at Fashionable Stamping.My wonderful prize was a voucher for Flonzcraft, so of course I immediately browsed their stamps. They have some very lovely and unique stamps. As soon as I saw this girl stamp I immediately thought of Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie! It is one of mine and my Mother's favourite tv shows, so I  just  had to choose her, and then of course I needed the wagon to go with her too!

 

I decided to make a bendi card, it was fairly easy to make, if you have never made one you should give it a try! On the bottom level I added some layers of raffia.on the higher level I added some texture paste which I later painted. I watercoloured a background. After stamping the images with black Archival ink, I coloured them with watercolours. I fussy cut the lovely images and adhered them to the card. I stamped some leaves and cut them out, and added them to the scene.

I think it looks a little like a scene from Little House, it is going to be my Mothers Easter card.

Thank you for visiting today.

Crafty Individuals Face Value



I don't think I have ever made a Christmas card in July before! 

Crafty Individuals have a Challenge this month with the theme of "Face Value". So I used their lovely deer stamp on my card, and created a snowy landscape.

 I have a feeling this deer maybe Prancer!

Thank you so much for looking.
