Welcome to Monday

I know I don't always post on a Monday but I DO normally post in the mornings so I fear I may have caught a few of you unawares! Still, it IS me and I DO have a craft-y make to share with you .... my ATC stock levels were SEVERELY depleted about two weeks ago but seem to have become the focus of my attention and are now adequate ..... that said, it won't take many swaps to deplete them again so there will be no resting on laurels. Want to see the colourful make which has been today's project? Yes, you're right, it features a couple of my current "go to" images - the paper artsy splatter and my Visible Image flourish
Materials used:
  • Snippet of brown card for ATC blank
  • Snippet of Kraft card for matting
  • Snippet of white card for focal image
  • Distress Ink in ripe persimmon dabbed over using a "minion" dabber and then applied through the "faux brick" stencil
  • Visible Image swipe stamped using Adirondack sunset orange
  • Paper Artsy splatter image stamped randomly using Distress Ink in picked raspberry
  • Paper Smooches sentiment curved to fit the curve of the swipe and stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Sunshine Designs foliage stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Visible Image (Craft Stamper freebie ... again!) stamped across the bottom using Adirondack watermelon ink which I also used to edge the white card panel
  • Visible Image finger print stamped randomly using Memento tangelo ink
I'll be entering this make for the following challenges:
  1. Pixie's Crafty Workshop - "Snippets challenge #172"
  2. Creative Fingers - Challenge #75 "Anything Goes"
  3. Craft Stamper - April challenge "Go all out for colour"
 And, over at Ike's Art I was a TOP PICK at Left of Centre .... for their monochrome theme, can't remember the card? See it (and the other top picks) here

What a fabulous design Kathy - and so perfect with the sentiment as well :) I love the vibrant colours too!

About camping, as you say - things sure have come a long way, although I ain't offering to try sleeping in said tent!
