About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Sketch Time at Michael Strong Rubber Stamps

I have completed my card sketch challenge for on of my favourite Yahoo groups, Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. Along with the sketch provided for the challenge you must use at least one of Michael’s stamps. For this sketch I used his small Cloisonne crane and a couple of his Cloisonne medallions.
This is the card sketch:

This is my card:

Some of the other elements that made up the card are:
  • the large background paper was coloured with Distressed Inks
  • the large circle was a piece of paper from my stash that I had made playing with some inks and an air gun
  • the purple flower was made with a Martha Stewart punch
  • the blue flower was a Tim Holtz die cutter
  • the white medallion was made with a EK punch and embossed
  • the sentiment was by Hero Art 
Come join the fun at Enjoy Michael Strong Rubber Stamps. Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
