I'm Back!!

I am so sorry it has been so long since I last posted. But I am back now and hope to be able to post a lot more. I have a couple of months before I go back to TAFE, so with no study or assignments due I want to make up for lost time in my craft room. I am getting back into the groove with a few challenges this week.

The first is from Sunny Challenges and is a sketch for a male theme card. Now I know this stamp set in not available at the moment I am really hopeful that I will come back in the new catalogue. I have used th esimply scored tool to create lines for texture on the background mat. So easy yet so effective.

Project Recipe
Stamp set: The Open sea, Oval all
Card: Early espresso, soft suede, cajun craze, not quite navy and whisper white
Ink: Not quite navy, soft suede and cajun craze
Accessories: Well worn dsp, simply scored board, large oval punch
