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!

Playing with Inka Gold

This was the first time I have used Inka Gold on a card and I like the effect.

For the background I used my fingers to rub on the three colours with my finger, Violet, Green Yellow and Old Gold. Once paint dried I buffed it to a shine with a piece of paper towel.  The flower and leaves are by Fred, She Said Designs from the happy flowers and sentiment collection of digital stamps. To colour the flowers with Cobalt Blue Inka Gold I painted them by mixing some Inka Gold with water.  

I added my sentiment and ribbon ans my card is complete.  Thank you for stopping by to see my card.  I liked the Inka Gold and I would like to play with the product more.
