About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Sunset!!

Back today with another Spectrum Aqua card. This again uses Sheena's "The Beach" stamp - but this time with more sunset colours.
The colours I have used for this one are: Sunset, Amber, Topaz, Kingfisher, Peacock Blue, Sea Green, Boulder, Evergreen, Desert, Fawn, Chestunut from the Nature set and Charcoal and Moss from the Essentials set.
I used the scribble technique to create the background card, then spritzed it with water...
... before placing a piece of watercolour card on top to soak up the colour. Matt Black card helps to bring out the the sunset colours. And now I shall be heading out into the garden to do some tidying up before a little family BBQ tonight.
