Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Tuesday Taggers

I do not enter many competitions, mainly due to lack of time to create cards specially to fit the criteria.  However, having glanced at the Tuesday Taggers http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/   rules for this week, I felt that this card might just fit in.  The base card is plain white hammered Dl card.  The decoupage on it is from a printed image I had bought at some time (no idea where, now).  I scanned the main image and reprinted it as four tiny ones, which I mounted together, rotating them to create the kaleidoscope effect.  I mounted the full image and the small ones onto two toning colours and added the peeloffs.  I have said before, you cannot have too many butterflies, and these are so pretty, being holographic.

Hi Maggie, I've given up on challenges for a while because, like you, I lack the time and wanted to have the time to learn new techniques and have the freedom to do what I want without fitting in to some prescribed theme, etc. Having said that your card is lovely, love the balloons and your clever scanning. You're not the only one that has bought an image and by the time you come to use it have forgotten the source - happens to me all the time:)Elizabeth x
