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!

Monochromatic Challenge at Fitztown

It is time for my second card for the monochromatic card challenge at Fitztown. I chose a rose image called FL1 from the floral collection at Fitztown

I printed the image on pattern paper then I used Copics to add some colour.
 Next I cut out the image and layered it on several pieces of pattern paper in the monochromatic colours. I faux stitched around the out side of the card and used distressed ink to the edges of the paper to give the card some dimension.

My final step was to embellish my card with a ribbon, tag sentiment, and butterfly.  There is still time left to enter the challenge at Fitztown this week.  Hope over to their blog and see the other cards the design team have made to inspire you.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Through The Craft Room Door - Alway's Anything Goes
