MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Fridge magnet card

On a little shopping trip to The Range with my pal Chriss last week I found some mini mirror frame magnets and thought they would be fun to alter.  I had a few thank you cards to make so decided to add one of the magnets to this card so that the gift could be used after the card was finished with.
I inserted an inchie image inside the mirror frame and sponged stazon ink through some sequin scrap to decorate the mirrored surface itself.  Topped it off with a hand cut butterfly coated with diamond glaze before adding it to the card.

loving text paper and the fabby brown linen paper from Papermania new collection. Edged with distress ink... well it just had to be didn't it.  They are never far from my hands while crafting these days... love love love them.... did I tell ya I love distress
