Here is another clean and simple card ( I cant do fancy) for the Colours and Sketches colour challenge this week.
Unfortunately it has photographed very pale again and is distorted. I can assure you the card is straight edged not wavy!!
I did not have Bashful Blue or Crumb Cake ( I thought I had) so I used Ballet Blue and Creamy Caramel. I did have Real Red. I inked up a block with the blue and caramel and spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the card. This is a technique I saw demonstrated by Ali Reeve of Stamps Away on Create and Craft some months ago and fell in love with the technique and immediately set about making a lot of cards using it. It was great fun as you just stamp an image over the top and you have a great, simple, quick card. I took the cards along to my craft group to show them, but it was a bit messy for some of them to use. I dont mind messy, in fact when I am trying to be clean, it still can be messy!!! I have used this technique often since.
Technique Time Tuesday challenge this month is Smackin' Acetate and it is a very similar technique, so of course I had a lovely time with that challenge too. For the rest of the card I used Stampin' Up Summer Silhouettes which is a lovely set. The sentiment is an odd one I had. The card is mounted on Real Red card stock. I again made quite a few for my stash, but with different layouts. I had a great time. Hope you like it.
