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!

Watercolor Bleed - Focal Image on the Side

This week at Come and Get It Challenges we are having a "focal image on the side" challenge.  I thought I would combine this challenge with a technique I wanted to try, water colour bleed.  This technique  can be found on the Splitcoaststampers' web site.  

The products I used to make the card are:
  • Distress Inks
  • Sun Flower Stamp by Class Act
  • Sentiment by Inkadinkado
  • Embossing Powder
  • Embossing Folder
  • Ribbon
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see your creation at Come and Get It this week.
