Finally!............I never did get back to tell more about the stamp I used yesterday. Family life really takes too much time from my crafting!!
Seriously tho', I have fallen for the Gothik Angelz stamps from Kenny K's. They are digital downloads, and so far I've bought two, but I see about 4 more I would lurve to own. I treated myself to Lady Raven first, which you saw yesterday, and I also bought "Star" who isn't actually in the new Gothik Angelz range, but is so similar in design, she fits in just fine.
I printed them off a little too large at first, but I can make them smaller next time I want to use them. I coloured them with Promarkers, however I really need a larger range of greys to do justice to them. I may try colouring them next time with twinkling H2O's.
I've not made a card yet with Star, but I've coloured the image..............
About Blackbutterfly Cards
I started making cards for pleasure in 2007, and quickly found my home was becoming swamped by cards everywhere. I decided to put some of them up for sale on a webpage in an effort to recoup some of the costs of my hobby. I called the webpage Blackbutterfly Handcrafted Cards, and it can be found at http://www.blackbutterfly2007.co.uk/
I try to take my cards to a couple of table sales or craft fairs a year, but make my cards mainly for friends and family. I would love the website sales to take off, as I nowhere near cover the costs involved in this all absorbing hobby, but for me the main thing is the pleasure I have in making my cards.
Recently I have decided to expand my blog to cover my other interests too. It's a sort of substitute for going to work and chatting to people, as due to ill health I was unable to work, and since the beginning of 2014 I am officially a pensioner.
Although I'll still show my cards, I'll also be covering my other interests and how I attempt to make ends meet day by day.
In fact anything that crosses my mind will be on here, so be prepared for waffle and a wasted five minutes as you read. Make coffee and settle in, why don't you?
