Cat and card



Hope you are having a great day. It's been a busy one here. Skipper has been helping out her Daddy with his work. As you can see it's hard work. lol

The card above was made today. Finally used one of the papers from my Tim Holtz paper pack. lol The wine dies were free with a magazine. The other dies are Tattered lace and Xcut.

Hope you have a great day.

A small quilt


Sorry I have been a bad blogger but work has been a bit busy lately. This is my latest project which I managed to complete in one day! Not done any sewing for a while so really pleased with how this turned out. The fabrics are from the The Works. 


Skipper  was being my little helper. She is such a good girl. :)

Have a great weekend.

Screen printing and my ginger baby




Been having fun with my Screen Sensations system. Printed this screen in black on a white t-shirt. The colours were added by using Derwent inktense pencils.  I did add water to the edges so there was a bit of colour bleed.  Was pleased with the outcome.  I have two new screen I got made with Beccy Muir's designs which I will be showing you really soon.  I am so grateful to her for letting me use her images. Thank you Beccy!!!

This is Skipper letting me use the garden swing. It was sunny but a bit nippy hence the blanket. She is such a beautiful girl but getting very grumpy in her old age. lol
Have a great week.

One for the boys


Birthday card I made for a friend's son who is a teenager who loves music. The stamps were free with a magazine and the background was created using various Tattered Angels Glimmer mists. Have been trying to use them up as they have been in my stash for years!

Hope you have a blessed day.

Screen printing and Skipper


My latest projects using my 7x5 screen and my Screen Sensation system. The inks are from another company and they work well. The are a bit thinner in consistency but worked fine. 


For fans of Skipper, here she is playing with her Kick-a-roo in her box.  She loves her box and her Kick-a-roo. 

Have a great weekend.

Farm Fresh


This is such a sweet digital set by Beccy Muir. When  first say it , I thought how perfect it would be for cards for friends around here. I live surrounded by farms and farmers. 
This set is called 'Farm Fresh' and can be found in Beccy's Place web shop. You can find this and many other wonderful digital and clear stamps in her shop.  For more inspiration do check out Beccy's Place blog.

Printed the tractor image from the 'Farm fresh' digital set onto white card. It was then die cut and coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. The sentiment is also from the set. Stars were stamped around the image in silver ink and edges in brown ink.
The background was dry embossed and coloured with metallic wax. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Sweet Delights



This new 'Sweet Delight's digital set by Beccy Muir is just perfect for homedeco projects! You can find this wonderful set and many others on Beccy's Place web shop.  There are lots of inspiration for the rest of the DT on Beccy's Place blog.

When I say these images the first thing that came to mind were canvases. I had these two canvases which I thought would be perfect. First I used  two stencils and some structure pasted with some starlight paint added to it, to give the background some interest. Then embossed a black piece of card and added metallic paste to highlight the embossing. Next I printed both the images on two pieces of A4 card and coloured them with watercolours and then stencils around them with starlight paint. 
They look so much better in real life and now resides with my friend in Texas.

Entering this in Challenge Up Your Life :#71

New decorated bag



This is one of my latest projects. The bag was decorated using a screen print image in blue. Then I used a butterfly stencil with gold and blue Starlight textile paints.  Once the front and back were dried, it was ironed to set the ink. 
The screen and blue pearl ink was bought from Thermofax Screens. I love using my Screen Sensation but I wanted to try other designs and inks. This ink is a more fluid than the Screen Sensation inks but works fine. Not tried the ink on a Screen Sensation screen as yet. 

Have a great day.
