About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

So annoyed

Time for some more slinky inspiration!

Here is my inspiration using So annoyed times 8

Colored with copics and then fussy cut! I used some dylusions ink and stamps! I tried the salt technique as I wanted the background to really look like water! All you need to do is add some salt to your project while the ink is still wet and then wipe it off after the ink has dried! So simple!

Head on over to see some other Slinky/Spunky creations!
