Welcome to Sunday morning

Morning all,

Hope you are all OK this morning ... hubby and I were out to dinner with my sister in law and brother last night - an Indian BBQ restaurant!!!! Rather unusually for us, we took the bus! Well, parking's really difficult around the location of the restaurant and the bus stop? DIRECTLY opposite the restaurant - how easy was that?

Bit of a change for me .. a card which ISN'T CAS (Clean And Simple) but it does, once again, feature Distress Crayons and Crayola Slick Stix!!!!

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of the envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 9½ x 14cm + snippets for both the image and sentiment
  • Two pieces of navy card cut to mat with a 1.6mm border
  • White gesso applied using a dried up baby wipe
  • Once dry Distress Crayons in black soot, hickory smoke and chipped sapphire applied to panel and blended with a moistened finger. It lacked a little something so I grabbed the Crayola Slick Stix red and added/smudged it around the edge
  • Using stencils from TCW and That's Crafty and a baby wipe I knocked back some of the colour and also added some lines using the TCW grungey lines stencil and Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • I stamped the Stampers Anonymous "man with umbrella" (from the set "SIDESHOW") once on to the image panel and a gain on to a snippet of white card, using Ranger Archival jet black ink. I fussy cut out the man from this image and mounted it on dimensional foam tape directly on top of the stamped image
  • I stamped the Stampers Anonymous sentiment border using Ranger Archival cobalt blue ink and the sentiment in Ranger Archival jet black ink - the panel was cut out, dabbed with Distress Ink in hickory smoke (to lessen the stark white of the card), mounted on dimensional foam and positioned above the image
  • Crafters Companion Spray and Shine applied to the project to seal the water based ink/crayons

Great card Kathy! Still dithering over crayons here - I do love to see your work with them and the 'guy with the gamp' is one of my faves for a masculine card.

Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground :)
