Designer in the spotlight - Evil Edna!

So hope you are ready for our first designer in the spotlight which is one of our newest team members Evil Edna.
Now in order to explain this to my Daughter we have just had to watch Willo the Wisp a few times with the ever so talented Kenneth Williams. I love how EE has taken on the persona so well! so here she is with her favourite Technique!
Name: Evil Edna

How did you start crafting ? : I have developed from making mud pies to staining my fingers green with ink, then hiding them in my pockets. When I am pretending to be professional. I like card making, altered art, digital art, stamping on materials, patchwork and making boxes. I tend to use distress inks which are a favourite product, I like how they blend. I love stampotique stamps like Bat Boy and Prom Queen, they have such character and they print well and evenly. I also LOVE puns and try to have as many as possible on my cards.

Fave project 1 : this is one of my fave cards, the main image is stamped on to a "caught in crystal" acetate piece then attached on to scraps and it all just really work well as a whole.

Fave project 2: I made this recently and love the simplicity of the design (the sun is masked distress inks.)

Fave Technique : masking, it really changes the look of a stamp and makes it more versatile.

Top Tip : it is an oldie but a goldie, put you paper etc on top of a mouse mat and then stamp on to it.
