About Me

My photo

I am a stay at home mum of one gorgeous 4yr old boy, & he certainly keeps me on my toes. I have crafted in some shape or form all my life, I have always loved to draw & paint & I used to do custom murals, back when I had the time lol. I also crochet & scrapbook, but my biggest passions are card making & doing altered canvases. I have been selling my cards for 3yrs now & my canvases & plaques for about 2yrs. It still gives me a buzz that someone wants to buy something I have created.
I will be posting some examples of my work here but you can see & buy any of my work on my facebook business page, I hope you like it.

Through The Purple Haze Challenges - Indigoblu

Good morning all, I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend. It's time for another challenge with

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

& this week we have been so lucky to be sponsored by the wonderful

& the lucky winner will get a stamp of their choice as a prize. (Check out the blog to find details of how to enter if you don't have an indigoblu stamp)
IndigoBlu as famous for their gilding flakes as well as their stamps. It was my first time using one of their stamps & I was very pleased with the crisp outline it gave.
I was lucky to get to use Blazing Poppies for my project & you can find it here
Our theme this week is: Anything Goes
So, here is my make. 


I wanted the beautiful stamp to be the main focus so I decided not to use any designer papers & keep embellishments to a minimum. 



I used some purple pearlised card matted onto grey, I wrapped some grey satin ribbon & added some card candi


I have stamped directly onto some of the purple card using versamark & sprinkled bonding powder on top. I then heat set it before transferring foil onto the image. I decoupaged 2 of the flower heads & added touches of purple promarker to add a little bit of definition. I then assembled my card.
It is so hard to take a good photo of projects using foils, so if you have any tips do let me know :)

I hope you like my card, I really had fun coming up with it & I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with too.
