Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
Hello my lovely friends and
visitors, I hope your weekend is going well.
I have one of my embellished but not fully embellished cards to share
again today. I have really enjoyed
creating this one too and I know part of my enjoyment is using rich colours
with new die cuts and really old embellishments too lol! And here it is …
An A6 card
Loads of yummy details
I am happy to be using some old stash too
I adore the new stamps with these rich colours and
I'm now wondering if I can make a winter scene look so good too lol!
Pretty and delicate
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I have a slightly eclectic inspiration for you: The Super
Mario Brothers Theme Song
Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running;
Go save Princess Peach! Go!;
Today, full of energy, Mario runs; Today, full of energy, jumping!;
Today, full of energy, searching for coins; Today, keep going, Mario!;
Get a mushroom - it’s Super Mario!; Get a flower - it’s Fire Mario!;
Goomba! Troopa! Buzzy Beetle! Beat them all!
Mario is always full of energy and strong!
I was really into Super Mario when it first appeared
quite so busy or quite so bold today but still much fun to create and I’ve
learnt that using Kraft as a base means that I can use the bright bold colours
that I love without my project looking garish.
I know, because I have done it in the past; very bright colours with
large areas of white do tend to look garish so I am happy I figured that one
out lol! Once again I used my Pebeo
masking fluid to protect the toadstools white spots and I die cut then coloured
quite a few butterflies, massive understatement!
Thank you so much for taking
the time to visit and comment. I really
do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
