For 10 years now we have been clearing our loft, well we finally got to do it over the last few weeks. I came across a lot of china I painted. I have taken a box full to the charity shop to sell the rest I have put on my craft room wall. There is a painting of my dog Daisy and a Westie which was my next door neighbours both gone to doggie heaven. I no longer paint on china just watercolours and mostly cardmaking and sewing. I am never bored just not enough hours in the day sometimes for things I love to do.
I cut an aperture with a Spellbinder die and sponged through the opening. The flowers are also Spellbinders, the kite is a stamp that came with the magazine Creative Stamping. The mat and layers are Spellbinders.
I cut an aperture with a Spellbinder die then used a grey ink pad to sponge the opening circle. The stamps are SU. The background embossing is a Creative Expressions folder also the mat and layers are Spellbinders.
A card I have been asked to make for Betty a volunteer at Jersey Hospice Day centre. A lovely lady. The background die is a Spellbinders also the sentiment. The leaves and butterfly die is a Memory Box.
The background to this card - using double sided sticky paper, placing a net curtain over on sticky side add glitter then take the net curtain away and apply a different glitter. The sentiment is a Memory Box and the flowers Sue Wilson.
These were done with Sharpie pens and pure alcohol, put random dots of sharpies over fabric then add drops of alcohol, watch it spread. I then free motioned machined over the top to make the flower shapes.
The stamp is a Denamidesign. First I stamped onto a piece of acetate with Stazon. Cut out the middle of the stamped image and used this as a mask. I stamped onto white card with Stazon, put the mask over the top and sponged with orange and yellow distress ink pads. The mat and layers are Spellbinders.
This card is for my neighbour a keen cyclist, she was in fact in the Island games and won a gold medal. The background die is a Spellbinders also the umbrella, the bike a Marianne die. The grass is a MS border punch, the flowers and leaves are IO dies.
