|My distressed card|
|And co-ordinating insert and envelope|
- 15cm square white, 250 gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
- 13½cm square white panels and black card for matting
- Snippets of white, navy and black card for the image panel
- Taking the snippet of white card I applied Distress Inks: tumbled glass, salty ocean, faded jeans and black soot using a blending tool and foam pad.
- I then took a Distressing tool and worked my way around the edges to give a grungier feel to my panel which was then matted on to black and then linen effect navy card
- My Inkadinkado image was stamped using Versafine onyx black ink before taking my brick stencil and, without re-inking) my blending tool was used to randomly sponge colour through, avoiding sponging colour over the central image. I used this stencil at the weekend and rediscovered its versatility - thanks Karen Clare
- Paper Artsy "splatter" image stamped using the faded jeans D.I.
- Crafters Companion Spray and Shine applied to the image panel to seal and protect
- Once my focal image was attached to my card I positioned my Inkadinkado sentiment (from their "rockstar" set) and stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
- For the envelope I used a smaller image from the Inkadinkado "in the groove" set and stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
I've left room for a sentiment inside, thinking it will probably become a birthday card. I'll be entering this card for the following challenges:

Yesterday my hubby said ..... "vegetable samosas for lunch" - fine with me, I LIKE samosas. Little did I know! I was talking on the phone with a friend when I smelled something super yummy coming from the kitchen but knew it was too early for lunch - WRONG!!! Samosas, from scratch, take a novice a while!! He says he got quicker at making the samosa shape as time went on!
If you're interested - they were DELICIOUS too!
And now, since it IS What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday - here's a little peek at the haven that IS my table of craftiness - I make no apologies for the state of it this week as it's where I like to think I do my best work!!!
