I have recently moved back to Msia and am still learning my way around. I've been spending a bit of time (quite alot actually!) browsing several Msian blogs.I was so happy to find so many creative people. I'm more used to looking at UK and US blogs. There's so many talented bloggers here in Msia. I find its not only the art that interest me but I learn a bit about the different cultures and backgrounds as well. Admittedly my Bahasa is a bit rusty and sometimes I can't understand everything. Wish I could meet you all in person and look at your art. I'm especially inspired by the quilling blogs like Lin's, Miyyah's and Simple Rhyme (see sidebar) - I know there's lots more of you but I haven't got around to you yet. See the reason is, I bought some basic quilling tools ages ago but never got around to using them. I have lots of crafty tools and things with me that have never seen daylight! (I know, I know! what a waste) so I should start by learning to quill. Girls (and guys if any) I hope you can help me when I need some supplies as I'm totally lost about where to get them (ie besides the big craft stores). As for me, I would love to share my art and answer any questions about it (or at least point you in the right direction) so if you've any questions please don't be shy, email or leave a comment. Happy crafting!

Another cutie image coloured with Prismas. I coloured it to match the background papers. My first attempt at drawing grass as teddy needed to be "grounded'.

This little girl is so sweet. The background designer paper is by K & Co. As it already had lots of details it was easy to just add the image and some embellishments.

I've been meaning to try out this technique with Distress Inks and here's the result. Its quite easy and fast. I used 4 different colours of ink for the background then sprinkled some water on it to give the speckled effect.

Today I decided to do a floral card. I used the stamped images to mask before stamping a row of flowers. They were then coloured with Distress Inks. Added a bit of glitter and some gold perfect pearl in the centre. The background looked a bit white so I swiped some ink to fill in the spaces. Turned out real pretty which is quite satisfying as I was only playing around with the stamp. Card size: 16.4 x 12.7cm

I've had this tulip stamp in my stash for ages (unused of course). I found it while looking for something else and suddenly an idea was born. Its a simple card but quite effective and shows off the stamp well. Now I've found it I must make sure I use it more often. Size:17.8 x 12.5cm

A sweet card suitable for most occasions. This is an image from Sugar Nellie which I have coloured with Distress Inks. The flowers I made with my punches and stuck on some flower gems. Don't you think she's really sweet? I like Hello cards because they are useful for most occasions or just to keep in touch with a friend....to let them know they're in your thoughts.

Hi and welcome to my first post. I have been making cards for a few years. I love stamping and colouring images with Distress Inks. I also love designer papers and sometimes can't bear to cut it up. There are so many techniques I want to try but there's never enough time. I would love to share my work with you so drop by often to see my latest creations. I will also have cards, albums and crafty supplies for sale.
