Cosmic Crazy

Hi everyone, just thought I'd share one product I'm loving at the moment. I bought some cosmic shimmer powders a few weeks ago, but like most crafters I know, they went in the drawer with everything else, anyway I found them and they are just fab.

The affects you get on black card are just gorgeous. I covered the bottom part of the card with a Versamark stamp pad, then taking three different colours of the powders I sprinkled them all over the watermark area. By dabbing with a brush and working the colour into the area, you are left with a wonderful affect.

I then used one of my favourite stamps, scribble flowers, and by stamping the small flower over the cosmic coloured area with the versamark, it lifts the powder to reveal the black card magic!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the top part of the card I stamped the medium scribble flower with the versamark ink and then dabbed the cosmic powder over the stamped area to gain a reverse effect.

Hope your enjoying this fab spring weather, bye for now and happy crafting P x

Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
