Second post Saturday .......

Hi there peeps,

Don't often see two posts from me these days but ... I was delighted to have been invited to be a Guest Design Team Member over at the Inkspirational challenge blog - however, their challenges go live early in the morning, well before my usual Saturday challenges. If you missed my early bird post then you can see it by following the link here or by scrolling down. There was nothing for it but to schedule the GDTM post and then prepare another for later in the day!, and here it is!

Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Stampers Anonymous image and Anita's sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Distress Ink in tea dye applied through a Memory Box (small circles) and TCW (sketchy lines) stencil using a Tim Holtz mini blending tool

I'll be entering this make for the following challenges:-
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 289 - SOMETHING FRENCH .... it's also One Layer Card week! something I've been known to forget before! This make is one of my more simple CAS cards!! but I didn't think it needed any more.
  2. Creative Fingers - challenge No. 114 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. A Vintage Journey - August challenge - STENCIL IT .... I went with vintage image/colour and font for my sentiment

Regular readers of this blog may recall that I swap ATC materials with a buddy on the Isle of Skye .... just wanted to let you know that I received my latest batch of materials .. here they are

Any suggestions?

I spotted that I got a "Design Team Favourite" over at Crafting With Friends, thanks peeps

Design Team Favourite 

Do pop back tomorrow and see what I've made the above materials in to ... Have a great weekend

Fabulous layering of elements on your LIM card Kathy. You have really showcased how effective stencils can be. Love the two colour scheme that you used too as that lends a sophisticated air to your gorgeous card. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More.
