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, Green and Blue Floral Milly with Kitten

This card was made with a Pink Gem image kindly donated by Judith B in a docrafts image swap back in September 2008.

I watercoloured the Milly with Kitten image using the following Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
  • Worn Lipstick
  • Milled Lavender
  • Broken China
  • Peeled Paint
  • Antique Linen
  • Frayed Burlap
  • Mustard Seed
  • Tattered Rose
The image was then highlighted with Craft Planet Iridescent Sparkle glitter glue.

I then distressed the edges of the image panel with the Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender distress inks. The image panel was then matted onto green and blue paper.

A panel of the multi-floral paper from the K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper pad was also matted onto the green and blue paper and a length of light blue organza ribbon was wrapped around it with the image panel matted over the top. A pink card candy from Craftwork Cards was added over the ribbon and covered with the Iridescent Sparkle glitter glue.

The 'It's Your Birthday' circle sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set was stamped onto white linen card and green paper using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink. The inner section of the sentiment was cut out from the white linen card and edged with the Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender inks. The whole sentiment panel was cut from the green paper and all matted onto a circle die cut using a small classic Nestabilities die cut from the blue paper. The sentiment panel was then adhered over the bottom corner of the image panel.

The challenges that I will be entering this card into are:
