Two Posts in one day! just a quickie. This is a birthday card I've made for my husband's birthday which is on Wednesday. I really like to use this Graphic 45 stamp of the jazz band with a vibrant background as I think it adds to the already joyful image. The background has been created using stamps from Tim Holtz's Bitty Grunge collection. I've used a Kaliedacolor rainbow inkpad in Calypso and Tims enamelled stamping technique. The band have been stamped separately and cut out and mounted on dimensional pads. They've had a little colour added to them with Distress Markers. I'm entering this into The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is all about 'Colour'. So that's me done for today. x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
