Welcome to Friday and the start of the weekend

Morning peeps,

Had a good week? Got a good weekend planned? Hope the answer to both is YES!

A bit more crafting to share ... a late entry for the SIXTH Blogversary challenge over at Simply Less Is More

My card
And a closer view which should hopefully showcase the three colours a little better
The inside of my card and reverse of my envelope
The front and back of my card and front of my envelope
The eagle eyed amongst you will spot I added more purple splatters AFTER I took this pic!
Materials used:
  • White C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 14.3 x 10cm and 13.8 x 9.5cm
  • One piece of navy card cut to 14.3 x 10cm
  • Kaisercraft crackle image stamped using Brilliance pearlescent purple ink
  • Kaisercraft distress image stamped using Memento Bahama blue ink
  • Kaisercraft Graffiti image stamped using Ranger Archival cobalt blue ink
  • Paper Artsy (from JOFY14) sentiment stamped using Memento Bahama blue ink
  • Paper Artsy splatter image stamped using Versafine onyx black and Brilliance purple inks

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:
  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 324 - COLOUR THEME .... THREE COLOURS APPEARING ADJACENT ON THE COLOUR WHEEL ... in this case purple/dark blue/light blue
  2. Happy Little Stampers - February challenge - USE BLUE - two blues .. check!
  3. The Male Room - challenge No. 53 - NUMBERS ... 16, that's a number, right?!
  4. Inky Chicks - challenge No. 78 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE ... lots of white space, one focal image - OK it's a panel - but I reckon it counts!

Always love to see you play along Kathy, your cards and envelopes always have so much detail yet retaining CAS-perfect designs too. Another prime example here. Super crisp stamping and super classy. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More and HLS CAS Challenge this week. Sarah x

Fantastic stamping and a brilliant design! What a super contemporary effect and with tons of visual interest. Always lovely to see your coordinated envelopes and card inners too which gives such a finished and pro feel. Thanks so much for playing along with us again at Less is More :)

Rollin' rollin' rollin', keep 'em rollin' in this week Kathy. You are on a creative high! This set looks so loose, free and arty but I bet you were really methodical creating it and the stamps used give a glorious texture. Yet another amazing masculine card to add to your collection. Thanks once again for joining in at Less is More xx

Viv said...

A brilliant masculine card - love how you've done the envelopes too!

Deborah Frings said...
