I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

A very quick card

This has to be one of the quickest cards I have ever made, about 5 mins in total - but I love the end result!

Card base is 4.25" x 5.5" and put tape all around outer edge to mask. Chalk ink then blended in the middle and stayzon used to stamp over the top for the flowers. The tape removed and then a rub-on placed in the centre.

Fits the following challenges:-
  1. One Layer Wednesday #58 - Yellow, Orange, Aqua
  2. Night Shift Stampers - Flowers
  3. CAS-ual Friday #7 - Colour Blocks

SENTIMENT:

OTHERS:

What a beautiful effect, love that you used a different medium other than paper to form your color blocks! The stamped image over top is sweet :) Thanks for playing this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

FAbulous background for your pretty flowers! I can't believe this was so quick for you...it takes me forever when I mask and ink, fussing around to get everything right. You are GOOD!
