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!

Make Your Own Background Challenge

Time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and the theme this week is make your own background.

To create my background I blended several shades of Distress Oxides on watercolour paper and then sprayed water on the paper.   

The flowers were stamped with VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing power.  The flowers were coloured Mungyo Water Colors.  To complete the card I added a happy birthday die cut. 

Thank you for stopping by and remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by the creative design team members.
