New Lavinia Stamps

Hi! I bought two new stamps at the NEC Hobbycrafts show in March, and this is the first card I made with them. I coloured the background with ink dusters on watercolour paper, and then spritzed with water to blend it a little. I coloured the flowers with promarkers, and used a Gelly Roll 'clear star' pen on her wings to make them shimmer.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Color Throwdown:

Dragonfly Dreams: "Spring is in the Air"

Uniko: "Use Metallics" - the wings look metallic, so I hope that is ok for the challenge!

A Hen!

Hi! A friend of mine has a couple of gorgeous chickens, called Talula and Henrietta, so I decided to try to make her a fabric chicken! It's an easy one, but I think she's quite cute!

Here's a video of how to make one:

Made a Draft Excluder!

Hi! Ok, so it's not fancy, but I made a draft excluder for my baby cuz and her new house. I found the fabric on Etsy and fell completely in love with it!

I'm thinking about getting some more fabric to make one for the pantry door - there's a gap under it and Darwin's favourite cat toys keep getting pushed under there! So maybe we need a Cat Toy Excluder :)
