Welcome to Friday and the Friday Funny

Morning all,
Here we are at Friday and the weekend starts here ... hope you are ready for it.
I found myself trapped in the rut of layering stencils and stamps inking with just two colours plus black or grey .... and here's another example:-
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of white card cut to ATC size and coloured using a Tim Holtz blending tool and Distress Inks in scattered straw and wild honey
  • Stencils from TCW and Tim Holtz used applying the above two inks with the blending tool
  • Stampers Anonymous "sun ray" image stamped with the scattered straw ink and then the checker image from the same set stamped around the outer edge with the same ink
  • Recollections splatter image stamped using the wild honey
  • Eiffel Tower image from the Artistry range by Stampers Anonymous using Ranger Archival watering can ink
I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Addicted to Stamps and More - challenge No. 146 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Penny's Paper Crafty - challenge No. 229 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Create and Inspire - challenge No. 22 - ANYTHING GOES

And, whilst I was making this ATC I had an audience, perhaps I should run a class!
I came home yesterday to find that I won over at C.R.A.F.T. - thank you peeps.

And now for the Friday Funny .... this week courtesy of Lesley T - you're in the draw!

Have a great weekend
