Dream on....

Here's a pic of the card I made for my daughter's birthday:



This uses one of the latest Finnabair stamps. I loved picking out what to stick on her hair!

Thanks for looking!

The Colour Wheel....

We looked at the Colour Wheel last week in Inky Fingers at The Craft Barn and at all the different colour combinations you can use, some with very complicated names I might add! The favourite in the end was 'random' - in our case, pick out 3 Distress Markers without looking and go for it!

Here are some of the things the group made - excuse the light shining on the glossy card - it was quite difficult to photograph:















We were using some of the latest Viva Decor Tag stamps and a couple of the latest Crafty Individuals backgrounds.

Thanks for looking!

Brusho workshop at That's Crafty...

I had a lovely day on Saturday over at That's Crafty doing a workshop on Brushos.
We used the Carabelle Studio stamps and everyone had a choice of buildings:



or flowers:



As you can see, everyone put their own spin on it and created some lovely artwork:














and a card for luck!


I hope I got a pic of everyone's!

Thanks for looking!

I've gone vintage!

I've got a lovely class coming up at The Craft Barn making some vintage frames and cards with some of the Crafty Individuals tag stamps:





There are two colourways to choose from and we're going to look at making your own shabby chic background paper and how to add texture to a frame.
So, if you fancy joining us, hop on over to the Craft Barn for booking details.

Thanks for looking!

Bored of using the same old colour combinations or not sure what colour to use where? Well, this time at the Inky Fingers Club we're looking at the colour wheel and making cards using some different colour palettes.

Hidden Objects

This is the theme over on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment, so I made a pull tab card that you can hide a message in:


If you want to see how I made it, then hop on over to the blog.

Brushos and Crafty Individuals....

Yes, that's what I'm demoing on Saturday at The Craft Barn Summer Fest and here are a couple of pieces of artwork:





These use Brushos with stencils, but I'll also be showing other techniques and using Crafty Individuals' latest stamps (some fab backgrounds).
There are also lots of other great demos going on, so come along and join the fun.

Thanks for looking!
