Hi all!It's been a while, but I thought I'd share a project I've worked on for my next online sewing class. Details under the classes tab.
The kit includes everything needed and an option to have the seahorse plain or painted and a Facebook Live class, which will be in a private group.
Felt in the background, lots of sparkly textures, sea shells and lots of fun stitching.
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

Here's a litte abstract artwork I made on my Create and Craft tv shows on Saturday 8th August.
I used cobalt and mojito inks, then just added a few drops of statue alloy ink, with blending solution.
I then showed how to use the applicator tool to swipe across the Yupo.
Here's a link to the show, available for 30days.

Here's a bright and fun card using a gorgeous new stamp Called Circle of Thorns by Andy Skinner. Hopefully you'll see this make an appearance on Create and Craft tv later in June.
Using a versamark ink pad and Andy's Satin Sunset embossing powder, I randomly stamped the image, then heat embossed it.
Thanks for looking.

Here's my project for the May Craft Stamper Blog Challenge. A pretty card with a wired heart and paper rose embellishments. To find out about the challenge and the fab prize, click HERE.
I also used the paint, Intense Pigment and Pixie Powders on a piece of fabric, which I use for the background and as a ribbon across the card. To embellish I added a piece of wire I'd shaped into a heart.
This looked a little bland so I then made a paper heart by rolling up copy paper coloured with the IP ink, and snipped a few black leaves from card I'd cut with the Leafy Frame die, adding some gold treasure Metallic Gilding Polish.
A stamped sentiment from the Big Ideas sentiment stamp set, and mounted them onto a little flag die cut from a Stitched Flag die set by Sue Wilson. Along the stitched detail I drew lines with a sharpie marker. This really makes it look like stitching. A few gems, a piece of lace and a thin strip of paper and it's finished.
