I did intend to upload some stuff earlier in the week, but firstly my laptop was playing up, meaning I had to reset after reset then reset again – ending up with undoing all changes and getting me back in…grrr!  THEN my phone screen kept disappearing Sad smile 

But I’m here – for now – and ready to upload some rainbows.  I really have had so much fun with my inks lately, and it’s been so exciting to experiment with Oxides!

My first is another Birdie card – this time for my brother. I’m sure you’ll be seeing many more of these because I have a box full of them, coloured, cut out and ready to use – as and when I need them!


This is just a journal background, firstly before spraying…


…then after spraying…


…then after sprinkling with rock salt and more water … always great fun! I prefer it in the second photo, I think.


This one’s just smooshed with Oxides, spritzed and stamped, then brushed with water. After drying, I stamped the edges with a stamp inked in Versamark ink, then sprayed, to take off a little colour.


This one isn’t made with Oxides, but it’s still a rainbow, so it fits in with my title!


The ‘shrooms’ are very autumnal, so I’d like to enter it into the Autumn challenge at

Sweet Stamping Challenges

and the Autumn Glory challenge at

Stamping Sensations

PLUS the Forever Autumn Challenge at

Crafty Stampers Challenges 

Thanks for looking!

See you again soon, all being well…

Hi Cath, Charlotte (used to be Kemsley) here - good to see you still going strong! And your granddaughter is just so darn cute! I hope you're teaching her lots of stamping :D Sorry it's been a while (okay, more than that.....) - life got massively in the way.

Hope you're well :)

Love, Charlotte xo
