My latest addition to A Crazy World is the leaning tower of Pisa.  First I drew the tower on grey cotton fabric with a black Pigma pen.  Then I cut out the tower and appliqued to crazy quilt background.  The tower is 3 1/2 inches tall.

Next on the world tour I will be adding a Dutch windmill.  Just need to refine the sketch and size to fit on world background.

Just Because

JustBecause_Jan2017

Products used:

Serendipity Stamps – Winter Farm and Just Because,large.

Cheery Lynn die – B664 Windmill

Spellbinders Nestabilities dies – Astoria Labels

I covered kraft cardstock with silver Sharpie and then daubed Tim Holtz Antique Bronze distress stain over windmill and sentiment background then dabbed with tissue to remove excess. It gave them a rustic, rusty look.

I added a sentiment to the card I posted last time. Now I’m happier with it.

IO – Thistle Garden

Playing with my new stamp, Impression Obsession’s – Thistle Garden. I love thistles, so was surprised that I hadn’t seen this stamp before.  First, the stamped image that I colored with markers. Then the finished card.

Wow, I can’t believe that I have neglected my poor blog for so long.  My only excuse is that winter almost did me in and also going through med changes.

This is a short post. I just want to let everyone know that if you are interested in seeing what I’ve been up to you can find pics here on my Flickr page.

I won’t make any promises of posting more, but I am planning to try. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,
