mixed media pocket letter

Hello. I took part in another pocket letter swap. The theme this time was 'mixed media' and this is the letter I sent my partner. I threw everything at this! Too many stencils, inks and stamps to list. But, if you want to know the name of something specific give me a shout in the comments!

one of a kind

Hello.This is another stamp from my new Penny Black set I was talking about last week. The background is 'modern mosaic'. A large My Favourite Things stamp that I have watercoloured. Love that pup!

Warts Up?

Hello. Warts up? Ribbit ribbit!

Thursday, 23 June 2016


Hello. I got a new Penny Black stamp set. It's called 'Man's Best Friend' and I love it! All the stamps are sooooo cute and make me smile every time. For the background I stencilled a heart and added some twine. I stamped the image onto watercolour paper, used watercolour pencils to colour and carefully trimmed around. The sentiment is by My Favourite Things from the 'brushstroke birthday' set.

Rightyho, I'm off out to cast my vote!

pocket letter swap

Hello. I have been trying my hand at Pocket Letters again. I joined the Make It Mail It Craft
Swap UK facebook group and organised a swap with a fellow crafter. We agreed to swap three letters. The themes were pink, summer and pets. For the pink PL I used my Clearly Besotted stamps. I stamped using pink and green chalk ink - quick and easy, no colouring!

For the summer PL I used a mix of stamps, stickers and die cuts. I did find this one a wee bit more of a challenge. But I think I managed to pull it off!

And here is the 'pets' theme. I'm sure some people keep hedgies as pets - don't you think? I really enjoyed this one. Watercolouring all those little hedgies was right up my street - and so relaxing.

And here are the three gorgeous PLs I received from my swap partner. Complete with extra crafty goodies and some delicious tea!

straight to the point

Hello. I did a wee bit paper piecing! The stamp is 'straight to the point' by My Favourite Things. The 'paint strokes' are die cut using a Paper Smooches die called, yep, you guessed - paint strokes!

Do you think that's summer over? My woolly cardi is back on and I have my thermal vest on stand by!
