Here comes another weekend ...

Morning all,

As the post title says .. here comes another weekend, got anything planned? Last weekend hubby had a model show and I had a scrap and stamp show to look forward to as well as dinner with friends. Not sure what this weekend will hold - YET!

One thing I do know - there WILL be some crafting, speaking of which, I recently acquired the fab Tim Holtz mini dogs and cats set, so here's an ATC using one of the set.

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in white and two shades of grey
  • On to both of the white snippets I stamped the Stampers Anonymous dog image using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • One snippet was coloured using Derwent coloursoft pencils and a Finesse blending pen, fussy cut out and sprayed with sealant
  • On the other stamped snippet I applied Distress Inks in spiced marmalade and picked raspberry then taking a Tim Holtz stencil I lightly applied Distress Ink in barn door, making it look like a brightly coloured brick wall! I sprayed sealant on this too, to protect the water based inks
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle splatter image stamped using Ranger Archival vermilion ink - to simulate the dog shaking his head!!
  • Using Tombow glue I attached the coloured dog image directly over the top of the inked background image
  • Hampton Arts jillibean sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Stardust stickles used to over write the large font segment of the sentiment
  • White gelly roll gel pen used to doodle a border

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Mod Squad - May 10th challenge - LET'S COLOUR (hand coloured images)
  2. Try It On Tuesday - May 9th challenge - LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT (smaller than 4" square)

And another make I forgot to blog last week!! Not sure how that even happened!

My card
The front and back of my card along with the front of the envelope
The inside of my card and reverse of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 5¼" x 4" and 5" x 3¾" + snippets (2) for image panel and matting layer (coloured DTP using Hero Arts neon yellow ink)
  • One piece of navy card cut to 5¼" x 4" + snippet for matting image panel
  • Carabelle triangular border stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Hero Arts line image stamped using Hero Arts neon yellow ink
  • Recollections small splatter image stamped using Versafine imperial blue ink
  • Studiog small flower image stamped using Hero Arts neon orange ink
  • TPC Studio sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:

I adore your cute dog on the brightly coloured inked and stencilled ATC, and the prettily put together elements of this geometric designed card. Have a good weekend. x

The expression in the dog's face always makes me laugh. So much fun to color I think. Thanks so much for joining in my Challenge for the Mod Squad this week. Good luck and hope to see you again.
