Getting Inky..


There is nothing I like more than being in my room with all my inks out.. and just play!

I do find that I’m more creative when everything is out
and things look like the photo’s I’m showing you today!


Above is the album cover bits that are in the process of drying at the mo
as I’d gone a bit slap happy with the diamond glaze!
It is looking yum, yum though and can’t wait to show you the finished project…
hopefully tomorrow.

 I also had a go at making my own DP,
I’ve inked normal watercolor paper with some cut ‘n dry and stamped the new SU!
medallion background over it a couple times with Aged Mahogany distress ink..
then got my pearl Glimmer mist and let dry.

The squares are done pretty much the same way,
but used peeled paint, 2 background stamps and a christmas sentiment.

The sweet SUGARNELLIE image has been coloured with distress inks as well to get a good match,
I’ve then cut her out and 3D’d the dog at her leg.


I love how the flower turned out today!!

Cut from tissue paper and distressed with inks.. the leaves have been stamped on grunge paper, inkedSP and stamped with plaid background.. then curled and heated to fix in place.



Olli loves nothing better than coming into my craftroom [told you before he’s got an artistic flair!] but lately he has really taken to sleeping on my chair..

I don’t mind at all.. as I love his company and I do most of my crafting standing up anyway!!  but when I do want to sit down, I feel really bad for waking him and kicking him of the chair!

Soooo.. I did the only other option left to me and bought him his own little
crafting chair so I don’t have to disturb him and he doesn’t pinch my seat!! heehe

Talk about being a spoilt kitty-kat!

Have a fabulous day all!

    too cute! Love that kitty has his own little sleeping pedestal 🙂 And I can’t wait to see what you’ve done with the diamond glaze and the rest of that project using the distress inks! Beautiful job with the elements on the Holiday card – that flower is really cool!

    Hi Marlene, looks like your having great fun, inky fingers brings back memories, I wonder why? LOL. Can’t wait to see the end product. Where did you get your units with the plastic drawers in, the ones behind your Sewing machine? They look fab.
