Courage Dear Heart



“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”

 C.S. Lewis,  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 

 I used watercolours  to create my background and versafine black ink to stamp over the top.

Morty on the beach


I hope it is not pouring where you are today, it certainly is here! June already and no sunshine yet! 

Today I would like to introduce you to Morty, a gorgeous new stamp by my friend Tracey Easson. She has dedicated her new range of stamps to the memory of her beloved father. 



I created  the background with watercolours and stamped Morty onto card before water colouring and fussy cutting him. He wanted to have fun on the beach and build a sandcastle, so I drew him a bucket and spade. After drawing a sand castle I added some texture paste to give it a grainy look, and painted it in a sandy colour. 

The seagulls, starfish, and shells are from Crafty Individuals, and also a Stamp Set which I think was made by My Favourite Things. 

Thank you for visiting me today.

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.
