A Little about me

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I have loved doing crafts for as long as I can remember-sewing, ceramics, painting. But I have only been involved in paper crafts for the past four years.What I love the most about paper crafts is the plethora(check out the 50 cent word) of styles and techniques in paper crafting.There is something for everyone. I hope, on this blog, to show you some of the techniqques I have learned and the cards or scrapbook pages I have made using those techniques.

Fabulous technique

These cards use a combination of 2 techniques from the "Techniques Junkies" Feb/Mar 2008 Newsletter. The techniques are aged metal and penciled twinks. They were easy to do, but create such fabulous results.
For the aged metal background, I first embossed the metalic looking paper with my "CuttleBug". Next I slid black STAZON ink
over the embossing.

The image was outlined in watercolor pencil, then filled in with twinkling H2O's. After I did the fill in, I brought the wet Aqua brush across the penciled areas, dragging the color into the image. And ta da! A great looking card. Stamped image by "Stampin Up".
