Woo Hoo, Sunny Saturday AND some crafting ..

It doesn't get better than this, does it?

Hi peeps, hope you are enjoying your Saturday and that you have nice weather wherever you are too.

Saturday morning's are ALMOST always spent at the ToC (Table of Craftiness) making at least one challenge entry for a couple of my fave challenges and, today is no different.

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

Materials used:

  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels cut to 9½ x 13cm
  • Two purple card panels cut to 9.9 x 13.4cm
  • Close to my Heart image stamped using Ranger Archival jet black (also stamped on to a post it which I cut out and placed over my image, as a mask)
  • TCW harlequin stencil through which I randomly applied Distress Ink in wilted violet using a Tim Holtz mini blending tool
  • With the mask still in place I stamped the Paper Artsy splatter image using Memento grape jelly ink
