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.

I have snowflake stamps and distress inks and sparkly spritz- and couldn't be happier about it!
Quietfire Design has just released a new stamp set and it's gorgeous. This card shows only two of the six stamps in the set. If you look at Quietfire Creations on Wednesday, you'll see a little more of it.
This card uses a technique called Distressed Spritz. Distress Inks are sponged onto the cardstock, then a Lace Border stencil was placed along the bottom edge and shimmer mist was sprayed over it. As it dries, the ink fades where it was wet, leaving a mottled, distressed look. The snowflake stamp was lightly sprayed with water and stamped a couple times. The rest of the card was completed, then spritzed with a little more shimmer spray.
Winter/Christmas/Holiday cards are so  much fun to glitz up.
What's your favourite for bringing on the shine?
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderfully creative day!
