About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Letterpressed Background

Good Morning All
I watched a video Sue Wilson made on Tuesday 10th November HERE, using Mica Powders to Letterpress. I thought I would give it  a try on black card, as the Micas I have are all  pastel colours.


 I love how it turned out.  I used afew different colours as shown here.
Below is the card I made with it, using a 6 x 6 scalloped card blank and Sue Wilson Ornate Ovals as the sentiment.
I did have to use afew butterflies to hide my messy heat embossing.
I coloured this too with Mica powders, used as paint.
The shimmer doesn't show up too good on the pics but looks great in real life.

  9. Hi Wendy
    What a dramtic effect, like a stormy sky but then muted by the lovely flowers.
    I always get confused about which side of the embossing folder to ink up lol!
