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!

Ain't No Sunshine

It is Sunday and Come and Get it Challenges has a colour challenge and the colours are pink, brown and blue. I just love the colour combination.  Bugaboo Digi stamps is sponsoring the challenge and Random org is picking the winner. 
The stamps I used to create my card are from a Bugaboo angel set of stamps called “No Sunshine”.  I coloured the image with my Copic markers, added some layers of paper and die cuts in the challenge’s colours. To add some interest and texture I added Diamond Glaze to the areas that were wet from the rain.  I also added white PearlEx Powder to the wings to give them some sparkle.

Now it is your turn to make a card for this challenge. We would like to see your art work.  Thank you for stopping by and do something creative today, it is good for the soul.
