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!

More than one Fold Challenge

I made this card for the more than one fold card challenge at Come and Get It this week.  Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi and they have a great prize for the lucky winner. 

 I decided to get out my watercolour crayons and paper along with a Penny Black rubber stamp to make my joy fold card. 

I added my watercolour crayons directly to my stamp and then misted the stamp. It took me a couple of tries because I was a ittle out of practise using the crayons.  I like the effect.  To complete my card I embossed around my image with some rectangle dies, added a ribbon and a thank you die by  Spellbinder.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Don't forget to stop by our challenge blog to see the beautiful creations the design team has created to inspire you.
