Welcome to my two new followers, Kristie and Shery of Stamplorations - thanks so much for following me and I hope you will stop by from time to time.
OH MY! What weather we've had this week? It's been wet and WILD here and some of our neighbours have lost roof tiles. I'm given to understand we've not endured anything like the worst of it so some parts of the U.K. must be in dire straits. I have no idea how much longer it's going to last (but won't be sorry when it's gone) and no clue about how long we are all going to be feeling the repercussions from the storms and resulting damage. Stay safe out there fellow bloggers
Each designer has their own "style" of design and they explain how they were inspired by the challenge.
The styles are divided into 6 style themes:
- 15cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
- White card and black card offcuts for image panel and matting layer
- Kaisercraft images: "grid", "chequer", "bubblewrap"
- Visible Image "splatter" image
- Hero Arts "dandelion" image
- Inks used: Versafine onyx black and Brilliance orchid for image panel
- Brilliance orchid, Memento rosebud, Distress Ink in worn lipstick, Versacolour raspberry and orchid
I'm not sure whether this qualifies as Clean And Simple (though there IS plenty of white space) so (if not) I reckon I may go with Freestyle collage instead!! Reckon this will be a challenge I shall be having a go at on a regular basis - now I've discovered it!
Here's a close up of those layers of stamped images.
|The inside and the envelope (front and back) - cool huh?|

"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."
Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.
Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.
She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who
She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"
The bank manager looks back at her and says. ........................
"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan, His old man's a Rolling Stone."
(You're singing it, aren't you? Yeah, I know you are..)
