Welcome to the weekend

Morning all,

Hope you've all had a good week, I know I have - we've had sunshine too. Hubby had a show to go too so I spent the day visiting my fave craft haunts and reading by the lake - perfick!

Anyhoo, some crafting to share with you today, sadly, the first one deploys a fab stamp but which I discovered was a knock off set but which I bought in good faith - BUM!

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White A2/C6, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of purple card, cut to mat
  • Using a pre cut aperture mask I stamped my image using black ink, including on to a piece of scrap paper which I cut out and used to mask my image, I placed my stencil over the image and aperture mask and stencilled the purple ink
  • Pencils to colour
  • Sentiment stamped using black ink
  • Wink of Stella clear glitter gel brush pen and stardust stickles used to bling it up
Prismacolor scholar and Derwent coloursoft pencils
Stampendous SSC1115 "Birthday Wish" and S.U. Beautiful You lookalike (I was sold a knock off, sorry SU)
Tim Holtz stencil from THMM103
Memento tuxedo black ink and grape jelly (not shown)
I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. QKR Stampede - challenge No. 294 - ANYTHING GOES

Well at least you're making good use of the set. FAB card . . . and great masking/layering technique.

Happy Saturday! We have LOVELY SUNSHINE for the rest of the BH weekend. Looks like I took my holiday one week prematurely!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Lovely card. Love how you have done the background. Shame about the stamps it isn't fair if you think you have bought originals to find out they aren't. Thank-you for joining us at the Colour Crazy Challenge this week.
