DT CALL Stamping with the Dragon

My name is Lorraine but most people call me Rainee,
I started craftig in December 2012, It was a close friend of mine who had been on at me for a while to make cards as I am craft minded but never considered i would be good enough. She then explained to me that it would also be good therapy for me to cope with my Brain illness and ME. Once I started I was hooked. she introduced me to a craft den and i have never turned back. I started using Digi images in january and have love playing and learning how to use my promarkers, which then in turn introduced me to trying ink stamping, this is another style I like to dabble in, and love to learn more about.
I think I could bring a simplcity style to the team and I love to blog hop so commenting on others work would be great, as i also find inspiration through others creations, like teaming clours and embellishments. I have attached 3 pieces of my work below and as you can see from Toe Tapping Tally that I like to use colours thats dont often appear to go together to see the vibrant results.
