- White ATC blank
- Distress Ink in iced spruce "swiped" across the ATC, I LOVE how it leaves the darker edges
- Kaisercraft "tiny dots" image stamped using Distress Ink in iced spruce too
- Recollections "splatter" image stamped several times using Distress Ink in peacock feathers, which I also used around the edge of the ATC
- Stampers Anonymous sentiment and mini blueprint typewriter image stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
- 12½cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- Kaisercraft "tiny dots" image stamped across my base card using Versafine onyx black ink
- Recollections "splatter" image stamped numerous times using Versafine smokey grey ink
- Go Kreate scalloped square die used to cut a 6cm scalloped square from an offcut of black card
- 5cm square cut from an offcut of Kraft card
- 4½cm square cut from an offcut of white card and stamped with a partial impression of my Inkadinkado "guitar" image, using Versafine onyx black ink
- Dimensional foam tape was used to attach the image panel to my base card
- Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped beneath my image panel using Versafine onyx black ink
As usual, these days, my design was carried across to the inside of the card and both the front and back of the envelope. I'm on a roll with these masculine cards lately, but feel I probably have enough now - perhaps it's time either for a Christmas card (HEAVEN FORFEND - it IS only January!!!) or an anniversary card - hmmmmm.
And here it is - a Christmas card using the same basic layout.
- Same as above but with an Inkadinkado reindeer instead of the guitar and Stampers Anonymous Christmas greeting instead of the birthday greeting as well as using Distress Inks in festive berries and barn door
Whilst it "sort of" works I have to say that I don't care for it in the same way I LOVE the black/grey colour way - is it the image perhaps or is it just the colours? Still, it IS one less Christmas card I'll have to make in November!
Clare posted the new Rudolph Day challenge over on Craftbubble 2½ (registration required) and, coincidentally enough, her challenge is: "Circles, Spots and Dots" so this fits in because of the use of my "tiny dots" image - yee haa - I shall probably have another go sometime within the next couple of weeks too, as I need to make around eight each month!
And, at Simply Less Is More they have launched their new sketch challenge - reckon I can combine two challenges here ....
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- 14cm square white card panel, edged using Distress Ink in broken china
- 3 x circles cut using white card off cuts, two edges with Distress Inks ... tumbled glass and broken china
- Kaisercraft "bubble wrap" image stamped across my image panel using Distress Ink in tumbled glass
- Inkylicious "dot" image over stamped across my image panel using Distress Ink in broken china
- Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
- Craft Stamper freebie "snowflake" (if my memory serves me well then I think this was a Chocolate Baroque image) stamped on to the smaller circle using Memento Paris dusk ink
- Stardust stickles added to snowflake to give sparkle
And, since I have made TWO Christmas cards I'm eligible to enter Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge (see it here) - WOO HOO, I AM on a roll today!
Do you have a "GO TO" stamp manufacturer? I am LOVING the Kaisers but I also love Inkadinkado, Stampers Anonymous and Penny Black (for their brushstrokes as much as their cutesie!)
