Helpful kitty

Life has been a tiny bit busy lately so not much time for blogging. Made some Christmas cards using a free kit which came with a magazine and Patch decided to help with the process. She is a crafter in the making as whenever I start to do play she is there! lol
Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Craft stall results

This was my stall at the Fun Day at our church in Bassingbourn.  It was a great day, lots of brave people abseiled from the church tower, I was not one of those. lol
Special thank you to Brenda (Floral Fantasies) for her donation and support today. Was wonderful to meet in person!

Thankfully I managed to raise in total £91 for my two charities

Only one small painting sold which was a shame. If you are interested in any of them do get in touch.

These are our two babies which have come from Joan at God's little People.

Bit of sewing

I kept seeing these great aprons and desperately wanted one. Finally decided to make one as it looked so simple. I drafted the pattern directly onto the lining fabric and then cut it out of the main fabric. Was really easy to sew once I make a couple of adjustments to the arms and neck. Once the it was sewn I used two screens to print the images onto the apron. 
I am really please with this project.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my projects, they do warm my heart.

Sound off Jean!

I treated myself to some Art Impressions stamps recently and this is one of them. The set is called Sound off Jean and I just love the image and the sentiments. 

The image was stamped and coloured in watercolours and then the background was done with shades of red and brown in watercolours. Once it was dry I stencilled through a Paula Pascual die, to add interest to the edges in brown ink.

The glitter cards (black and purple) were bought from The Works in Royston.

Happy Pill

Did a bit of experimenting this week with paints. Started with the different colours of acrylic paint and blended them together. Did this a couple of times and then took away some of the paint from the top layer with a rag.  Really like the background and how the layers and colours mixed. Can see many things wrong with the cat but I am happy with the overall painting.

Purple Tag

Made this tag last night by candle light. The storm caused a power cut for a few hours but thankfully was back by 10pm.

The tag has acrylic paints, metallic wax in several colours. The background was embossed and I used the debossed side. The stamps are by Viva deco.

New Painting

Had a bit of painters block recently but finally put brush to  canvas this week. This is a painting done with acrylic paint. It does look much better in real life and I am really pleased with it.

Cute kitty card

Trying to clear up the mess I made while doing some crafting in the living room. While doing this I found some paper and decided to make use of them. lol 

The stamp is a Penny Black one I bought years ago (at least 8 years). Just love love the cat stamps and though I would use it today. I embossed the glitter card and the pattern background paper with a Tonic embossing folder. The Works have some great glitter paper and card at a really good price.

On the sea

Promised my darling husband I would rest my arms today but I just had to do a bit of crafting. lol  All the stamps used in this card are by Beccy Muir and can be found in her shop Beccy's  Place.  The boat was stamped in black in  on white card and coloured with watercolours. The posts and sea gull image was stamped and coloured with watercolours and cut out. Really love how the stamps from different sets can work so well together. I did draw the birds in the sky with  a black pen.

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments you have all left recently.

Have a lovely day.

Made a tag yesterday. The background is one of the backgrounds done on the Gelli plate. I used one of my Carabelle stamps with the paints on the plate. The sentiment stamp is from Marianne and the dies are Sheena Douglass and free one with a mag.
