My card tonight is one I made a little while ago … I took photo’s of a whole load of cards I made and sent out to sweet friends, some of which have already been shared here … others, I thought, I’d show later. Well, later’s arrived! My crafting-in-marginal-moments phase is still going on at the moment, so whilst there’s a scheduled Time Out DT post due, the only other card in (very slow!) progress isn’t finished yet. Here’s today’s little checkered number (which one of you will recognise!) …
The background was built up using a TAWS stamp … it has with two rows of five small squares, so I inked it up in sets of colours and stamped it repeatedly across the card to create a rainbow/ombré checkerboard. The Winnie & Walter sentiment was stamped and heat embossed, and I added a little subtle bling. Voila!
Popping along to …
One Layer Simplicity (Hip to Be Square) – the fabulous Ardyth is the host this month … love the theme and planned out quite a few ideas in my head … unfortunately, that’s where they stayed! Squeezing in here during the closing moments!
Darnell’s NBUS Challenge – you all know about this already! The checkerboard stamp is my NBUS and this is my third and final entry … which is p’raps as well seeing as Mr Linky will be on door duty tomorrow!
Moxie Fab World Fabulous Friday (Getting Fancy) – have a look at the amazing inspiration photo below … I thought all my colours and the shiny black sentiment were a pretty good match to all those cool bottles of nail polish!
Winnie & Walter Join In To Win – love using these W&W big sentiments!
SSS Monday (Stencils and/or Stamps) – I went with stamps … after all it is Stamptember!
I have a couple of hello’s to say to two new followers tonight … non-blogging card maker Karen … and Rachel, who has just posted her first lovely card over at inkyfingersareme … and is in the process of setting up a craft room. You can check out the ‘before’ photo’s on Rachels blog … and then pop back for the ‘afters’ when it’s done … I know she’ll appreciate the visit! You’re both very welcome, ladies … and thank you 🙂
Back tomorrow with the new Time Out Challenge … and hope to get my on-the-way card done before the weekend … see you then! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
