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!

Time for a Card Sketch

It is Cindy’s turn to choose the theme this week at Come and Get it Challenges and she has chosen a card sketch.
This is my interpretation of the sketch. 
The background paper was colored with Gesso and Radiant Pearls mixed in colors of pink, blue and copper and then the paper was spritz with glimmer mist. Once the gesso had dried I cut out my frame using a cut and embossed frame from Cuttlebug called Carly. Inside the frame I added a scalloped circle and stamped a sentiment and embossed it with copper embossing powder. I layered the frame on copper card stock which I thought brought out the copper in the background paper. I then added a ribbon and some bling to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you will join us at Come and Get It Challenges this week.
