2nd post, challenge entry

Hi there,

Back again - just a quick post from me this gloriously hot and sunny Saturday - here's hoping it's the same where you are.

Over on the Simply Less Is More blog the challenge is YELLOW (in addition to being Clean And Simple, of course) and here is my entry ...



Materials used:
  • White 250gsm C5 card and matching envelope
  • White card panel coloured with a yellow copic marker and then stamped in Distress Ink (wild honey) on a Recollections splatter image.
  • Black card panel
  • Penny Black "Breeze" image inked in Versamark and then dusted with yellow mica powder which was then set using hairspray

Hope you like it, if you've time then please feel free to check out my earlier post here or by scrolling down, it contains the Design Team challenge over on Craft Mad and Loving It.

Have a fab Saturday, it's Cinquo de Mayo here and everywhere's celebrating so the restaurants will be doing themed evenings, beer specials etc - I imagine it will be pretty busy out there tonight so a fun evening with our neighbours (and friends) Sally and Roger should be in order.
