Try something new for the New Year- Crafter's Companion post


Everyone on the Inspirers team was asked to try something new for the new year, and I opted to try some sewing. I had a great time and found a whole new appreciation for our very talented sewists. I used Love Birds fat quarter fabric, one of Sara's floral dies and some ribbon from my stash.

Sheena Douglass Groovin' 60's bookmark

My post for Crafters Companions Inspirers team this week is a bookmark, using the swinging chick, and Blooming Sixties stamps by Sheena Douglass and grunge AquaTints. 


After cutting a piece of watercolour card to size, I sprayed it with water and brushed the AquaTints over the top allowing them to blend into each other where the colours overlapped. Once that dried I stamped over the top with one of the flowers from the Blooming Sixties set. I was not very pleased with the job I had done so I went around all of them with a black pen (that's what they are for...right!) After stamping one of the Swinging Chicks in place and going over the image with a silver pen. I splattered some with and silver paint over the top and went around the edges with black paint.

Sheena Douglass Swinging 60s Card


A very Happy New Year to all, I hope 2017 bring great things for everyone xxx

For my Inspirers post this week I have made a card. Using a card blank, watercolor card stock, Aqua Tints, and the new Sheena Douglass Swinging Chicks stamps. I love these stamps, they are just so fun looking.


 I cut the watercolor card to size sprayed it with water and dropped the Aqua Tints over the top using the applicators that come in the box. Once I was happy with how it looked I dried it completely and then splattered black acrylic paint over the top. While that was drying I stamped the ladies out, I was unhappy with how the ink looked against the paint so I painted over them with the same black paint before cutting them out. To finish I glued the ladies in place on the card and doodled around the edges.
