2nd post of the day, challenge entry, please scroll down to read my earlier post

Hi there,

I KNOW, I know, a second post from me almost immediately after the first - what's that all about? Well, didn't I say I was craft starved?!

I have looked at the wondrously popular Simply Less Is More blog this morning and their current challenge is "A TOUCH OF RED" and I couldn't wait to use some stamps I bought yesterday. HOWEVER, the scale is wrong for a card (or maybe not . . . .) so I made an ATC - I'm going to upload it to the challenge but am half expecting it to get bounced as it's not actually a card although it is MADE of card!!!! I DO have a Plan B if Chrissie and Mandi don't like it though so you may see more!


Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Fiskars image inked once each in Brilliance crimson, memento rich cocoa and archival black
  • Fiskars sentiment inked in archival black
I also bought this set of stamps and couldn't wait to use the paper airplane . . . .



Materials used:
  • ATC blank, with edges distressed and coloured with dark blue
  • White card very slightly smaller than the ATC blank and coloured using distress ink in faded jeans
  • Recollections image inked in Archival black and coloured using the clear Sakura stardust glitter pen
  • Hero Arts sentiment inked in archival black ink

Happy Saturday

Love the shoe one,Kathy....I'm sure it could translate into a card.

Craftilicious said...

I think it counts and you can't tell its an ATC from the photo. Love the sentiment, its one I personally live by ;-) and the shoes are fab :-)

Chrissie said...

I don't know if we've actually said anywhere that it HAS to be a card... even though it may be generally implied.
I love those shoes... love the sentiment too. My daugher had a friend who had a Saturday job in Russell and Bromley... they got a bonus if they persuaded any customer to buy the same design of shoes in two different colours.
She would probably have loved this sentiment too!
Have a good week.

Erica said...

This card could easily be mounted on a base. I totally can see it. Of course, I wouldn't mind seeing another card by you.

ThinkInk Creative said...

I am guilty of buying a pair in 2 colours if I really like the shoes. I don't do it often but I have done it so this card obviously 'speaks' to me. That makes it a great card. :-)

cheers,
Malyn at ThinkInkCreative

Hello Kathy. How cute is " sending smiles" . I write a few letters and I'd love to put that with my signature . I'm sure those images would look great as card toppers too.
