Hello and welcome!

Hi! Welcome to my very first blog posting! I'm so excited to have my own blog! I have been so inspired by all you amazingly creative people out there, I just had to join in! I hope that some of you are just as inspired by some of my creations.

Do please have a look at my galleries and I'd love to hear any comments you have. Do leave me a comment and I can come and have a look at your blog too!

Here is a card I've just made using my Penny Black transparent stamps.

I wanted to create a doggie couple so I stamped the dog twice side by side. Then I stamped the tie separately from another transparent stamp and coloured and cut the tie out and glued to the dog on the left. The bow on the right hand dog I just drew freehand and coloured and cut out and added to the ear to create a girl dog! I coloured using watercolour pencils and added highlights to the roses with Crystal Stickles which I just love!

Crafty stash used: Stamps- Penny Black transparent sets, Elzybells sentiments; Watercolour pencils; Crystal Stickles; Black fine liner; Paper- Papermania Love kit; Assorted cardstock; Pink sheer ribbon (recycled); Red gems (Lakeland)

Hi Steph! Thank you so much for following my blog...just begun browsing more closely through yours. You are really talented!

I have that same doggy stamp to and it really gave me some inspiration of what I can do with it! Love that you've made this cute couple of it!
