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!

Feeling Sketchy

I made this card for a challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge blog RRCB30 .  They were having a sketch challenge and this card is my interpretation of the sketch.   

This is the sketch I was work from


To make the card I directly added the watercolour to my flower with my Caran D'Ache watercolour crayons, layered my images and added my thank you sentiment. 

My Penny Black flower stamp was purchased a little more than a year ago and the sentiment is an old stamp from my stash made by Just for Fun in 2003. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
