Time to Celebrate
Well it was definitely a stay in and craft day yesterday so thought I'd enter a few challenges so here are a couple of cards.
For the first one I've used Oak House Studio stamps - Fireworks and the Celebrate Words sets - and I've stamped with their Colour Chemistry Pigment Ink Pads - Triple Fruity Reds and Triple Sky Blues which give a great ombre effect. I stamped the sentiment, masked it and then randomly stamped the fireworks, sprays and added stars etc.
I've kept it 'Clean and Simple' to fit in with The Craft Barn's weekly challenge, used 'Something Blue' for the Oak House Studio Challenge and 'Take a Stamp - Anything Goes' for the Craft Stamper Take it, Make it Challenge.
My second card is even simpler but took ages!! It's for the Less is More Challenge week 234 where the recipe is to use a SNIPPET in the design. I think this is a great idea - I'm sure we all keep the smallest pieces of leftovers and it's nice to use them. I used the same sentiment stamp and then used the balloon die that came with the latest Simply Cards magazine. I cut 5 balloons from various snippets of sprayed card and then I dithered, arranged them, re-arranged them etc. In the end I've just added one ...well the challenge is less is more!!
Anyway thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave me a comment - they are much appreciated.
