Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Hi, Sunday morning and where is the sun?  I'm off playing bowls today in a County Match at Halesowen and so this is a very quick post but I wanted to show you what I did with my failed aperture card. 

The cut-out became a stencil!  With the help of 3 colours of distress ink and a scrap piece of card......
this is the result. A good start for something??!?!?!??

Back tomorrow, win or lose, have a good day!

Oooh, this is so lovely Ikki! Beautiful misty colours and masking is one of my favourite techniques for backgrounds.
