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!

Magic Is Something You Make

Fashionable Stamping Challenges (#22) this week has an interesting challenge, create something that is "Mystical and Very Magical". When I saw the challenge I immediately thought of a Wizard rubber stamp from Stamps Happened, Inc. that I had in my stash. I coloured the wizard with my Pilot gold pen and my Copic Markers.

I searched my stash for elements to make up my tag. I used a cloud stamp on the background then added stars, Diamond Glaze , a metal "spirit" tag, fibers, and a sentiment. I trimmed the edges of many of the elements with my Krylon Gold pen to make the elements pop out.

Thank you for stopping by and have a magical day.
