I'm back with my second card of the day. The World Cup is great - while the man is watching the matches I'm also sitting in the lounge making cards! Everyone's a winner...although I doubt very much that England will be! lol :)
This is another one layer card (these are fast becoming my favourite kind - who knew?!) and is made purely using stamps from Clearly Besotted (one of my absolute fave stamp companies) and ink, nothing more.
And this has got to be a record for me, I've managed to combine TEN CHALLENGES!!! I've checked all the details on each challenge blog and I don't think I'm breaking any rules so I'm going ahead and linking them all up.
Here's this evening's creation, I went with a wedding card as I have none in my stock and you never know when someone might want one...
First I stamped the stripes. I used pigment ink so waited a few minutes for this to dry before masking off the stripes with some post-its. I then used a few individual stamps to build up the flowers, flower centres and leaves. After removing the masks I stamped the sentiment, and that was all it needed.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Basic Stripes, Love Blossoms and Bridal Bouquet
- Ink: Versa Color - Seafoam, Orchid, Petal Pink and Bamboo; Versafine - Onyx Black

That's all for now folks, it feels good to be back after my little blip over the last couple of weeks. I need to do some serious organising of my stash, the way I'm working at the moment isn't ideal and I have so many bits and pieces out on my table as they need to be sorted before I put them away. This could take some time! :D
Thanks so much for visiting and for all your lovely comments, its great to know what you think of my creations.
Bye for now
