What a Mix!!

Morning all. Hope you are enjoying the beautiful
sunshine, like we are having here in Suffolk.

Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.
I love to read and treasure them.

I have two pictures today, as they are both very 
different but finished on the same day!!

My first is a card using a Honey Doo Crafts stamp.
I used Distress Ink mixed with glycerin, to make 
the piece of white card pink and lightly mottled.

I stamped the image with Versamark clear ink
and embossed with white Wow Embossing powder.
I then coloured the flowers, using Copics pens.
A bit fiddly using 3 shades and used a 
Colourless Blender Copic pen to remove any
ink that went on the white embossing lines.

Now this little fella I just adore!!
I made him, using my Needle Felting 
wools and needles I bought from 
Frankie and Sidney, details at the bottom
of page.
He is 5" high and 4 1/2" wide
or 12.7cm high and 11.5wide.

It did take a few days to make it and
made it up from just seeing a picture on line.

His back legs were the hardest and took me 
2 goes to get them right. 

I am now going to make another one.
 I just sent a picture of him to a 
couple of friends and one, Aileen, 
wanted to buy him from me!!

Sandy (X Craft Barn owner) said 
'it was probably the cutest thing I 
have ever seen!!' Also, her husband
thought he was real!!

So I must make notes of what I did,
before I put him in the post!!
Going to take a few pics of all angles too.

You can find the shop at

They sell the most beautiful wools etc.
They are free delivery mostly and a 
pleasure to deal with.
If you're too scared to just 'go for it'
 as I did, with a few animals and want to 
have a try, they do sell kits.

Looking forward to seeing your makes.
Stay safe. 
Big hugs,

Love the pink card. The dog is adorable, you really are very talented. I’m a bit behind with my commenting as I got a new iPad and in the process of transferring everything lost access to bloglovin. Fortunately I was able to get in and restore it from my laptop!

Carole said...

You are so clever Carol....Love your fact I think I have that stamp lurking in the stash...clever idea with the background and then to deepen the colour on the flowers. As for the little fella at the bottom of your post...adorable, I can see you are going to be very busy from here on! xx

Hi Carol

A really beautiful card but I have to admit your needle felting has stolen the show. You are clearly a natural! Beautiful work.

All good at this end thanks Carol, and Mum is too. Hope you are well too.

Love Jules xx
