my first blog!

I had made it my new year's resolution to use some of the many craft goodies I have, instead of just buying them, and that I would create something from craft stamper magazine each issue. Then I discovered the wealth of blogs out there, and more specifically mittwochstempler ! So here is my first attempt, with an atc for the 'shiny' category this week. I used alcohol inks to create the background (wild plum, slate and stream, with some pearl mixative) and stamped over with one of my new Tim Holtz stamps. The butterfly is from a set which I picked up really cheaply years ago, and I have stamped it onto the atc with black archival ink as well as onto some aluminium sheet with stazon.


  1. Welcome to WS! Your alcohol background looks wonderful as does your shiny foil butterfly = Lovely ATC! You're so right about using what we have too.

  2. Oh and congratulations on your new blog too!


Thank you for taking the time to visit. It's always nice to know that someone has stopped by, and it would be lovely if you left a message!
