Introducing Marga our New Design Team Member

Hello everyone, today we would like to introduce a brand new member to the Design Team; Marga Dounan. You may have seen some of Marga's work on the recent TV shows on Hochanda. Marga has been helping us out, and is now joining us as a permanent member of the Design Team. We asked Marga to tell us a little bit about herself so that you could get to know her a little bit better.

Hello, I'm Marga, I'm 54 years old, I'm living in the Netherlands in a small village. We have a daughter and son, and two grandsons. I started crafting when I got sick 30 years ago, it was not my thing to do nothing, so I went looking for a hobby. I did all sorts of things until I discovered stamping. Since then, I just stamp and play with stamps. I discovered Chocolate Baroque stamps 5 years ago and loved them instantly. My first stamps were Pretty Poppies and since then I bought a lot more, I dare not write how much I have already. Most of all I love to colour stamps, ut I do all sorts of techniques. Therefore I am so glad that I can be part of this great team and I hope you also love the things that I let you see. Hugs, Marga.



Marga's first project  incorporates some of the latest stamps that were featured on the TV shows on Hochanda:


Hello all, here is my first post as a new Design Team member. I'm so glad I may join this team. Today I want to show you this beautiful bird from the Kingfisher Song stamp sheet. I stamped the bird with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and coloured it with pencils. I also coloured the branch with pencils. The leaves from the Silhouette Grasses stamp sheet are stamped with Memento ink. For the leaves, I have also used a green fineliner for some details.



Also, I have used a pencil to shade around the images. The sentiment comes from the stamp sheet Words to Dazzle and Sparkle.
I hope you all like my first post for this blog,


Best regards,

Marga.
