Birthday Wishes...

So I have something a wee bit different to share today.  I saw the background technique on Youtube....well something similar and thought I would try it out!

First I cut the square blank card and then loaded a paintbrush with water and randomly dropped the water droplets across the card.  I then gently dropped various colours of green and blue watercolour ink on to of the water droplets and left it to dry naturally....I left it overnight to find the watercolour had dried into the card....I thought it looked quite cool so made it into a card.
I embossed the leaves and die cut them and watercoloured with a darker shade of blue to make them pop out a bit.  I added some sticky fixers and layered them onto them card.  I added a piece of stripey paper for a funky look.  I added some splashes, dots and sequins and doodled the edges to finish.

Hope you likey.

Fab 'n' Funky - anything goes

A wee mug...


So I treated myself to a wee mug press and I thought I would share what I have made....I have to say I'm a wee bit obsessed!

It does take a bit of getting used too...I have a box of rejects that I can't decide what do do with yet.  I think this is my best one so far above....and a wee selection below which I am happy with too!

Don't go pitchin' no hissy fit...



Morning stampers it's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog.

This time we want to see your doodling...yes doodling.  You can have as much or as little as you like.

Now I do love a bit of doodling (incase you didn't already know that) so this is perfect for me to showcase the doodling that I like to do. First of all I stamped up this Whimsy stamp and coloured using copics.  I stamped a couple of sentiments from the same set...I have to say these are hilarious! I added some sequins and dots too.  I then doodled around the edges and then shaded in some of the doodled line so it has a checkered effect, now I like using this kind of doodling when there's lots of white on the card as I feel it really stand out.  I then layered the panel onto some coloured card and then onto the card blank.

Hope you likey!
