This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Tomorrow is the deadline for this week's Colour Q so I got busy this afternoon.
I used the embossing folder as a stamp. I inked up the side I wanted to use with a brayer, placed it over the white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot. I had to add a few layers of cardstock for shims, to get a good print.
The flowers are die cut from white waffle paper, glued into stacks, crumpled and sponged with dye inks. All easy stuff to do, just takes a bit of time to do it. Worth it I think. :)
Take up the Color Q challenge here.

Then, I had a go with the left-overs and made some tags, or bookmarks.
The opposite end of the folder was used for stamping on these backgrounds.

Thank you for looking!
