something exciting has landed on the site!

Morning all, today is an exciting day as my two new stamp releases are now available to purchase on my website. Come and meet the mammals of Scotland which include Badger, Pine Marten, Red Squirrel, Highland Cow and the Scottish Wildcat.

These images speak for themselves, very little work needs to go into them when producing a handmade card. Below you will see some simple and clean card examples using these beautiful images.

Exciting Times Ahead!

Hey everyone

Just a quick update from me as I haven’t posted in a while. I am currently working on something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and guess what? I’ve finally taken the plunge. Over the next few months I will be hopefully sharing a few sneak peeks of the new Photopolymer Stamps only available from Mellzcraftz. To begin with my idea is to have the product line available on my Etsy shop which you can find a link to from my webpage below. I have received my first lot of samples today and I will be playing with them over the next few weeks to ensure they are tip top before I share them will the world. Watch this space. πŸ™‚

Kit and clowder online colouring classes.

I’ve recently signed up to take part in the kit and clowder colouring classes. Whilst I’ve been colouring for years, I want to learn how to colour realistically using light source to make my images really come to life. I would recommend kit and clowder to anyone who is interested in learning more about colouring. Alyce is a great teacher and explains things really well. If lockdown has been good for anything it has been great for taking the time to learn new skills and work on what you are really passionate about.
