Tracy's crafting passions

Good morning crafters, time for our mid month inspirational post and over the next few months will be doing something a little bit different and inviting our DT's to answer a few questions about their personal crafting..........a bit like being a fly on the wall in their craft room.

This month Tracy is in the spotlight and has created a fabulous piece of artwork....................

And here's what she has to tell us about herself and her crafting......................

Q) When did your love of stamping begin?

About three and a half years ago, when I found blogland and saw all the beautiful cards.  I had just started scrapbooking then, but loved all the cards, so thought I'd give it a go. Bought a couple of stamps and loved the fact I didn't need to be an artist to produce something decent by my own hand

Q) What do you enjoy most about it?

"I love the colouring and how the stamp comes to life as you colour it"

Q) What is your favourite make of stamp ?

"Oh anyone reading this will know my answer - House Mouse and Penny Black"

Q) What is your most used stamp/product and why?

"A set of Dovecraft Sentiments, I use them all the time, in fact I used them on this card.  It's a large set and covers a lot of celebrations and names"

Q) What colours to you most enjoy working with ?

"Pastel and vintage colours"

Q) What inspires your designs?

"I think animals and nature are my biggest inspiration. I always start with the image and imagine the colours, then match papers and embellies. And I suppose Blogland is a huge part of it too"

Thanks so much for sharing that with us Tracy.

Next and because I forgot earlier in the month, here at last are two winners of our 1000 followers candy.
