WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Pink, Black and White Wildflowers

This card was inspired by one that I saw in an issue of Creativity magazine. Just discovered it was Issue 19!
I decided to use one of the stamps from the Crafty Individuals Wildflowers stamp set.

The Wildflower stamp was inked up using the Versafine Spanish Moss archival pigment ink and Whispers Port Wine permanent dye ink and stamped onto the Greenhouse paper from the Basic Grey Wisteria paper pad. The flowers were then coloured using the Carmine Impress reinker.

The individual words from the 'Just For You' stamp from the Clear Choice! Birthday Parcels and Greetings stamp set were inked up with the Port Wine ink and stamped onto the separate panels.

A length of the Anita's pink two-tone self-adhesive ribbon was adhered to a panel of the black and white polka dot paper from the Papermania Clare Curd 'The Big One' paper pad, and a knot attached to the right.

The image panels were attached overlapping each other and at angles and clear faux gems were added to the third panel.

Here are the challenges that I will be entering this card into:
