Crafting and Baking
I have been making a card for my sister's birthday and went full on mixed media for it - hope she liked it! It has a die cut leaf which I coloured with acrylic ink and then clear embossed, so it looks as though it is wet. The background is a mixture of book pages and collage papers and the envelope has leaf stamps on it.
here - inking and then stamping onto self adhesive labels. I used Tim Holtz stamps 'Field Notes' here.
here It was really easy to make, smelled beautifully of cinnamon and mixed spice and tasted even better! It is great as a pudding with custard, or with cream or yogurt or just on its own. As it has apple in it, it won't keep for that long, but that wasn't a problem in our house!

#Printinktober 2022 - week one
I always enjoy a little creative challenge, so when I saw this one on a blog which I follow, I knew I wanted to get involved.
Inktober is a month long challenge where you use an ink supply to create a piece of art every day during October. Printinktober is where you use a stamp to create a piece of art every day during October. I thought it would be a great challenge for me as it would encourage me to use stamps which I haven't used at all, or not very much. I could also review my stamp collection at the same time..possibly...or not! There are a set of prompts (above) but as always with these things, you don't have to follow them. There is an opportunity to share what you do on instagram I think, but I am just going to do a weekly round up here.
This one is Pattern and used stamps I have only used once before. These were border stamps from Dovecraft.
Yes, this one is Rainbow and I used some new pigment inks (Versafine Clair) which have lovely vibrant colours. This was a Sizzix stamp set called Splats.
Abstract was the prompt here and this used Altenew Simple Flowers. This is a stamp set I really like but I forget I have got it.
Are you joining in this month?
