Highlighted Heart


Why is it my cards usually end up with some purple in them?
This started as a sheet of Kraft Card which I then inked with Distress Oxides
before stamping in Distress Oxides.
The black images are embossed and then highlighted with a white pen,
apart from the front cover where I coloured the rings with a silver pen.
Stamps used:
Steampunk Heart
JudiKins Vintage No.1

Studio decorations


Did you see the all the effort the Hochanda team went to in decorating the set for our 26th birthday?
Lots of bunting and presents, it looked great.
The floor manager told me they were going for an 80s themed street party!
But the counters did have to be lowered several inches because when I arrived they were way too high, kind of at my elbow height - not great for stamping.

Sunset at Sea - Oxide style

If you saw me on Hochanda TV earlier this week you will know this is Sunset at Sea
designed by Teri Sherman.
Vicky stamped the image with Distress Oxides, I know the main colour is Seedless Preserves.
After stamping Vicky used a waterbrush to move a little of the colour around
but the Oxide colour is intense so you need to wipe the excess ink of your brush frequently.

Celebrate our 26th Birthday with us

I made this card using our Steampunk Heart (designed by Teri Sherman)
