Well, I had a very interesting two months. Lots of school activities, small trips, we were all sick with one type or another of a flu or a cold. I haven't even realized it's been almost two months since my last update. Ooops. I am back now.

Today is a gorgeous day in Vancouver. Practically summer. I am sitting in the garden with my laptop and enjoying it with my kids. It is only last few days that the weather got better, it was pretty miserable last month. I've been stamping a lot. I finished working on my craft room and I love it. It is so easy to find everything (provided I put it back where it belongs). :-) It seems that two techniques took over - watercolouring and soot stamping. I love both so much, I've hardly done anything else. An old stamp set by SU!, Natural Beauty was a great one to play with. Some cards were cased, some not, I made so many I am not sure anymore... Wanna see? Here are the five I really, really like...





Supplies Used:
Paper: Natural White (SU!), Watercoluring paper - 140 lbs cold pressed (SU!), One of the SU! blues - I really need to learn my blues, Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Really Rust (SU!). Baja Breeze (SU!)
Stamps: Natural Beauty (SU!), Linen (SU!), Sincere Salutations (SU!), French Script (SU!)

The next three cards are all made with the same soot stamping technique, out of less than one sheet of glossy white.

    I hope to see you posting more often because your cards are fabulous! I have not been the best blogger either, but I would rather post less often with cards that I am very happy with versus cards that I threw together just so that I can update my blog everyday. I love seeing your latest creations!


  14. I really like the 3D aspect of your cards and the soot technique is super cool.

    Totally lovin' your blog. I'm going to point this blog out to a fellow stampin friend of mine. We have a little private joke (at my expence) over Really Rust. Your work just proves that Really Rust is a great colour to work with, LOL.
