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!

Mix Media Butterflies

I have been playing with my Brusho colour crystals this week and I decided to join in the Mix Media Card Challenge this month.  The theme of the challenge is butterflies. 

 I coloured my background with my brushos by sprinkling water on my card and blowing the colours around with a can of air. Once I had my background the way I wanted I stamped my clematis  and butterfly stamps on my card.  My next step was to added more Brusho colour to my butterflies with a paint brush and finish the card off with a ribbon, threaded pearls and a sentiment.  

Products I used to make my card:

Stampendous Butterfly rubber stamp
PSX Clematis rubber stamp
Stampin Up sentiment rubber stamp
Brusho Crystals 
White ribbon
Threaded Pearls
