Bright one for the Boys


A card today...

I wanted to have some of the base cardstock showing through the inked layers this time, I quite like the 'white bits' - funny how the same can't be said when applied to sunbathing!! (of which I have been doing rather a lot lately)...

The splats are bingo dabbers, Sam brought home a splattery picture from nursery recently, "How did you do that?" says I... Cue a trip to the poundshop the very next day, lol! Yes, I know you can do it with distress stains, but I haven't got any of them, and bingo dabbers? Well, no prizes for guessing how much they cost!

I'm entering this card for two challenges

Simon Says Stamp & Show - One for the Boys
Stampotique Designers Challenge - Bright Colours

So thanks for visiting & {GREAT BIG HUGS} with a cherry on top if you comment too!!

Dylusions Tag


Yes I'm back, with another tag no less, still trying to perfect my inky background techniques & playing with my lovely dylusions stash!

Had lots of fun with this, of course I am heavily influenced by the hugely talented Dyan and Kate Crane which I imagine is fairly obvious lol! I will put this onto a card blank later for a special friend's birthday, she is indeed a 'Top Chick'!!

I am entering my tag for the challenge this week at Simon says Stamp & Show which is Anything Goes.
