A final post for the month ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’ve a card to share again today and here it is …
An A5 card for our card box for a change!
It has great depth yet flattens to go cheapest post
I must start playing with my newer butterfly stamps lol!
Love these little flower stamps (so versatile) and touches of bling with sequins!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
A Sprinkle of Imagination Challenge Anything Goes (The Distress Re-Inkers)
Craft for the Craic Challenge May: Things with Wings
Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #13 Brights
I’ve played a lot with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints a lot this month and I’m going to be using them a lot more from now on. I love the many different effects you can create with them and that they work with many of the other mediums that I have in my stash – always a bonus when you need to be frugal.
On today’s creation I’ve used them as an ink for the background pieces and as watercolour paints for both soft and bold colours. They blend beautifully with each other and I have discovered they also blend with some of my Distress re-inkers too. I love these colours because they are gorgeously bright and zippy but not gaudy or garish. Needing at least two more of the colour sets they’re at the top of my ‘Must Have Wish List’, above all stamps, that’s how much I am in love with and enjoy using them lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do over the coming week. Also huge thanks to my lovely friends for visiting and encouraging even when you know I can’t return the favour right now! You are all lovely and much loved by this somewhat eccentric (aka mad) crafting stamp addict woman ttfn Karen x
