So I've been mostly been making cards recently due to Christmas and my current ink/paint obsession, but also some scrapbooking. Another thing the new year does is makes me realise how far behind I am with that. I haven't scrapbooked any photos from the second half of last year, so I've just put in a massive Snapfish order. And here's a couple of pages I've done recently.
For Christmas my lovely mum gave me a voucher to spend at Make the Day Special, or as it is now known, Seven Hill Crafts, newly reopened with a smart new website. Here's what I bought with it as soon as it reopened to get my 2016 creatively kick-started. I couldn't resist opening the Altenew flowers to have a go straight away, it's just a shame I now have to work all of this weekend! I just have to keep myself away from the internet as I now want to buy loads of ink colours to stamps flowers with.
Also for Christmas, I asked my husband for these Gansai Tambi watercolours and one of the Mama Elephant die sets (gotta love crafty Christmas presents!). The other I got from Seven Hills Crafts as I was lucky enough to win their November blog challenge, yay!
And finally for this massive blog post, a birthday card I made using the Gansai Tambi paints (and Avery Elle stamps / Lil Inker die). I have to say, I love working with these watercolours, possibly even more so than my Zig Clean Color Brush pens. I just love inks and paints at the moment, can't get enough of them!
Thanks for reading, see you here again soon!
