My last post for this year and a Happy Christmas to you All


I was so struck by the designs of these Clarity Stamp Groovi plates from Jayne Nestarenko and I decided I just had to give them a try, its been about 8 years since I did much parchment but this new way of doing it is certainly a lot easier than trying to draw out all the lines.
I have used all three of the plates and designed the whole layout. I then after I had done the white work I coloured it with my Karisma Polychromo pencils.
To finish of I layered it up on a dark blue background, its rather big 8"x 8" but Im pleased with the end result I hope you also like it to.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper December Challenge

Good Morning Crafters this is the last blog post that I shall be making for Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge so I want to thank Hazel for letting me be part of her Design Team for the last year and I want to wish the Team all the best for the future.
And here is the Card I created for this last Challenge for me

This stamp image is from Marianne Designs I stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens I then glittered it and cut it out with a Marianne die and inked through the diecut holes. I then placed it onto a piece of blue card to make if stand out more on the patterned background.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is a piece of blue card the backing paper is from Creative Expressions then in the corners I have used the Memory Box dies to create the diecut designs.
I then laid my mounted image in the center and stamped a sentiment onto another piece of white card and cut it out with a oval die and inked this around the edge to. I then placed it before the mounted image in the center.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to the CraftyHazelnutsPatternedPaper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspirations.
