Hi, my name is Sue and I live with my partner in a village in Derbyshire. I love all kinds of mixed media crafting and am never happier than when I'm elbow deep in paint ! I hope you enjoy your visit !
It's time for the next challenge over at The Fashionable
Stamping Challenge. This time the lovely Esther has chosen the theme of
Music. I've taken the opportunity to make another Christmas card as it is fast
approaching and so far I've only made 4 cards !
I used an Elusive Images stamp set for the background and stamped 'Deck the
halls with boughs of holly' and 'Tis the season to be jolly' using Olive
Archival ink and doing second generation stamping. I then blended DI over the
card and did some Spritz and Flick. I tore a piece of a page from an old book
that had no text on it and stamped on it using on old favourite Christmas text
stamp, but I don't know the make of! The lovely cottage is from the Artistic
Outpost stamp set called Midwinter. I added a little stickles to the cottages
The holly leaves, branch and berries are all cut using the Tim Holtz die and
I've coated them all with Distress Rock Candy Crackle paint. I stamped the
music onto some shrink plastic cut it out and shrunk it. I stamped the text
onto the twill tape using Olive Archival ink. The numbers are cut from white
card using the Tim Holtz WordPlay die and I've blended DI over them and then
painted with the crackle paint too.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you
