Hi Toucan!

Hello. Treated myself to some new stamps. The set is called Toucan and they are from Tracey Hey at Alpaca Pals. I used my Art Philosophy watercolour confetti set to colour, love the zesty colours in that set. The background papers are Sketchbook by Amy Tangerine. 

I am entering the Allsorts cute

The other main stamp in the set is a toucan dressed as a pineapple - it's card world and anything goes! The papers are again from the Amy Tangerine pad.

That's it from me, take care, stay safe.

Mixed Media Book - part 1

Hello. Look at all the gorgeous happy mail that has touched down in the crafty room. All new in over at Paper, Pen and Plan. I couldn't wait to have a play so I have pretty much thrown everything that came onto the first page!  

I am far from a mixed media expert but I do find it fun and relaxing to do. Also, there are so many tutorials out there, thank goodness for You Tube! I started by giving the whole page a wash of the Art Philosophy watercolours. Then I stencilled some of the Sparks acrylic paint - a hint of sheen and sparkle. Then I added loads of collage bits from my oddments box. I finished off the page by adding stamped and coloured images from the Dream Without Fear stamp set. Pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Once the first page was done I decided that the cover deserved to be decorated. I have been saving the background piece of paper (which came in an earlier Sweet Treat Box) and decided this project was the perfect time to use it. 

The flowers and birds are from a Tracey Hey stamp set called With Love. I stamped, coloured, cut them out and stuck them down. Added some doodles and washi - job done!

hello friend

Hello. I'm still having fun with my Penny Black stamps! This one is Buzz in the Air and I coloured using my Zig Brush Markers. The diecut background is Butterfly Oval by Tutti Designs and the large diecut daisies are from a Sizzix set called Wildflower Stems #1.

I am entering the Cute Card Thursday challenge....anything goes.
