I love this little girl. She's a collage image by Art by Marlene.
I made a postcard for my journal. The background started as a stamped stencil image. I then added crackle texture paste through a heart stencil and when dry used Oxide re-inkers to drip colour from top to bottom of the page. I added some tone on tone texture stamping and some black stamping around the edges. Gold wax was added to the hearts and they were outlined with gold Posca pen and Charcoal watercolour pencil. Gold acrylic paint was added around the edges of the page. Washi tape acts as grounding for the collage image.
I love the effect of crackle paste ...

A warm welcome to my newest follower, Grasiela Santos. Thank you for showing interest in my blog.
I had a little time today, so I decided to have a play with some ink and new stamps.
Here is the card I made:

Let me please welcome two new followers, Sue Kimmet and Gabriele Patton. Thank you ladies for showing interest in my blog!
Today is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and I have used a set that was released a few weeks ago, but I didn't get around to using it until now. The set is New Puppy and Janet made this digi set to commemorate the arrival of her new puppy, Olive.

I distressed the edges of the Buddha image and layered it onto papers from the Winter Palace ATC set. I added lacy die cut borders made from kraft card to match the hard cover of the notebook, inking the edges with Vintage Photo ink. I embellished the Buddha with tiny gemstones and Stickles. I found some lovely natural coloured flower trim in my lace collection and added this to the base of the panel, adding a gemstone on the centre of each flower. Tim Holtz 'Small Talk' stickers with inspirational words were inked and added along the dark blue mat layer. To finish I added strings of gold flat-backed beads that have a metallic lustre.
