I live in Southport with my partner Paul. I have two fantastic children .... Craig 25, and Becca 18, who I am so proud of and wouldn't swap for anything in the world.    We sadly lost a special part our family, our cat Sibby last year, and now have a new family member who has quickly taken over the house ...... our rescue cat Boswell !!!

A Bit Of 50's And Some Art Deco !!!

50's Fashion Birthday Card


Used A 15cm x 15cm Shaped Card,
Inked The Edges Of The Cards To Match Backing Card And Topper
(from Create and Craft Sew Pretty Mini Kit)
Added Buttons To Edge To Add Dimension



Special Art Deco Card For A Very Special Friend


Cut A Piece OF Silver Mirri Card And Attached To 8" x 8" Card.
Took 6" x 6" Piece Of White Card, Applied Acrylic Paint, Using Mono Print Technique (I Think!).
Once Dry, I Dabbed With Pigment Based Ink To Create The Colour/Effect I Wanted.
I Then Added The Decoupage Topper, Sentiments, And Gem Swirls With Co-ordinating Brads.
This Is The First Time I Have Attempted Printing My Own Backing Card, So I Hope It Worked!
I Now Have A 'Gelli Plate' On My Wish List !!

 Decoupage Art Deco Image,
Mat and Layered Using Black Card and Gold Mirri Card.
Added Scarlet Red Ribbon And Diamonte Gems
Mounted Onto An 8" x 8" Card Blank

  1. Great cards, love your mono print background. If you want to play with a gelli plate you can pop over for a play? Give me a ring?
