Hello, thanks for taking the time to pop into my blog. Today we begin a new two week challenge at    Cardz 4 Guyz .  Dawn from the DT has chosen for #276 Shades of Blue. For more details and to see the inpiration from the DT please pop over to the blog.

For my card, I was inpired by a card in the Creative Stamping #92 magazine.  I used a white A6 card, I coloured the edges with  DI Chipped Sapphire. Added a grey mat. I used several blue inks to create the main image. Splodges of blue and Spiced Marmalade.  For the sentiments and the runners I used Versafine Clair Bluebell ink. I hope you are well and will think about joining in. Take care.

No Patterned Paper

Hello, thanks for your visit. Today at My Time To Craft our new challenge begins. Tracey has chosen for the next two weeks our challenge is No Patterned Paper.  Please visit the blog for more detaisl and to see my fellow design team buddies litle works of art.

For my 6" card, I have a black mat.  The white card was then smooshed in  Shaded Lilac and Twisted Citron DI sprayed lightly with water.  Dried with a heat tool. Once dry I then added the same two inks through two different masks to create an interesting background. Again heat dried. Through past experience I know the Rock band stamp by Sheena Douglass needs a lot of pressure, so I placed the main image in my Press to Impressstamping platform, stamping the stamp twice with Versafine Onyx Black. The sentiment and 'Rock On' are stamps from Crafter's Companion Just 4 Men set.  Enjoy.
