Hello everyone I love it when the sun shines like it is today. I have washed all my sheets and dryed them and I have had a good tidy up. I had some lovely crafty goodies arrive today including a Stamping up Catelogue from the lovely Teri I also got a digi image from the lovely Teri S who's link to Delicious Doodles you can find in my sidebar. I also got my awesome My Guy Ian Stamps from the greeting farm so it was rude not to use them today for my challenge crafting.
I used a direct to paper technique to create my background. Firstly I used a pennyblack stamp which I thought resembled straw. I used a watermark ink on the stamp and randomly stamped the paper. I added various colours of ink with some foam. I then overstamped with the pennyblack stamp and a mustard yellow ink. I also added my sentiment. I coloured My Guy Ian image with promarkers using the colour create colours which are Red Yellow black and white. They have an optional challenge to use check and flowers on your project hense the flowers in the background and the check ribbon and My Guy Ians shirt. I also added a charm which forfills the criteria for Cute Card Thursday's challenge. I used Basic grey and MME papers.
Loved using the techniques which I have been neglecting for so long. It reminds me of why I love craft so much.
