We treated ourselves to a day of two halves yesterday ..... a trip to Costco in the afternoon (in the wind and the rain!) but then the treat of a visit to Raj's with a pal in the evening - super yummy food and a very pleasant evening with a pal too - always good, more than made up for the necessary (but EVIL) trip to Costco!
A recent delivery of the latest issue of Craft Stamper landed on my mat with its fab free image (my new favourite!) from Visible image - set me thinking right away .... I made a card and a number of ATC's with it right off the bat but I have another to share with you today .... it might not be instantly obvious that I've used the image but, trust me, I DID ... on the orange layer!
- Orange ATC blank
- Snippet of Kraft card
- Snippet of white card
- Visible Image (C.S. freebie) stamped around the edge of the ATC blank using Adirondack cranberry ink
- Distress Inks used on the white card snippet: mustard seed, shabby shutters, tea dye, vintage photo and black soot
- Close to my heart numbers image stamped twice using the D.I. tea dye
- Visible Image ink blot stamped using the tea dye ink
- Wendy Vecchi (for Studio 490) sentiments and another Craft Stamper freebie (moustache) stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
I am loving this image and have already been on-line and ordered the full size version ..... and, wouldn't you know it? A couple of other things just happened to ACCIDENTALLY fall in to my basket too! How on earth do these things happen? Can't wait for them all to arrive at their new home now!
|You can see my new "Go To" stamp .. bottom left corner|
I'll be entering the above ATC for the following challenges:
- AMusing challenges - "Anything Goes"
- Fashionable Stamping - "Favourite GO TO stamp" .... this fabulous V.I. flourish - I love it so much I've bought the large version too!
- Stamping Sensations - "one for the guys"
- The Cheerful Stamp Pad - "Use a Silhouette" ..... my moustache is a silhouette!
No Riddick sitting this week, apparently he's having a fab time at the seaside and has become a fan of the water! Guess his e-mail is in lieu of a postcard!
