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.

Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown

Thanks for stopping by. I am hosting a Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown this week and this is the card I created for the challenge. 

This beautiful image that I am calling Finger on lips is a digital stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons' collection at Fitztown.  You may not find this in the store but if you send a picture link to sales@fitztown.com, someone will help you with your  query. 

I have coloured my image with Copic Markers and Distress Inks. I used a Spellbinder Card Creator to frame my image and added a flower I have made to complete the card.  The flower was made by adding alcohol ink to an acrylic sheet and let the ink dry  then I used Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose to die to cut out the flower parts.  I then used my heat gun to melt the acrylic to create an interesting shape. The petals were held together with a brad.  There are several sites on Pinterest giving directions for these flower. 

I hope you have a creative day.
