- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

The image is 'Beach Hammock' by Penny Black and I've stamped it with Stazon onto watercolour cardstock. I then spritzed with water and used my water colour pencils. I'm not that confident with water colours but I am pretty pleased with how this has turned out.
I've used the ties from the hammock to incorporate my fibres so that it looks like it is fully suspended (if that makes sense).
The text I've done on the PC and then matt and layered. All the bellies and brads are from my stash. The DP is Pocket Full of Posies by DCWV.
