Hello there, and welcome to my new followers too. Thank you for joining me on my crafting journey.
I'm here today with a card that I've made for the lovely Darnell's NBUS challenge. I was hoping to meet up with Darnell on her recent trip to the UK but unfortunately, due to our own holiday plans, this wasn't possible, although I did enjoy reading about her UK Roadshow :)
As many of you may have read in an earlier blog post, I was so lucky recently when I won four new stamps and a stamp set from Crafty Individuals and this card was made using their 'Home Sweet Home' stamp.
I masked each part of the card off individually before adding colour to each section. For the background, I spritz my Ink Dusters before using them with Memento Dandelion, Distress Carved Pumpkin and Adirondack Mountain Rose to give a greater depth of colour. As it's a New Home card, I wanted to give the card a warm and cozy feel, and the background reminds me of flames on a real coal fire.
I am also entering this card into the Crafty Individuals Challenge which has just started. I hope this will still count as 'Clean and Simple' as I haven't done anything but colour the stamp. As it's a collage stamp, there is rather a lot to look at, so I will probably make another entry that fits the brief a little better!
That's all for now but I hope to add a new post sometime over the weekend with more of the Inkylicious August samples. So until then. Take care and be happy :) X
