The challenge this week over on Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog is to Take a Town, City or Country Break. I love mini city breaks, so thought I would opt for this set of stamps from Crafty Individuals. I have tinted my little squares with blue stream DI, then gone around the edges with vintage photo DI. I have over stamped the images with sepia archival ink. My backing paper is from Joanna Sheen, the Da Vinci pad - I just love this pad of papers. Finally, I have tinted the edges of my 6" square base card with blue stream DI. My bp and each of the squares and the city names across the bottom are all mounted onto bronze cardstock, a very useful purchase from a craft shop in Llandudno.
I'm afraid one of the squares looks a bit squiffy. The battery on my camera had died so I had to scan the card and the silicone wasn't quite dry!
As my back is still playing up I didn't want to spend too much time bending over my craft desk, so out of necessity this is a quick card but nonetheless I rather like it. Hope you do too.
Thanks for dropping by. I love to read your comments.
I live in a beautiful area of North Wales, up in the hills but not too far from civilisation! We run a busy boarding Cattery. I answer the phone and do a little administration. My passion is paper crafting which I have been doing for the past ten years or so. I love getting inky and messy with paints. Nothing better than starting with a clean sheet of card and creating everything yourself. I like to keep my hands busy so when not paper crafting I also knit, crochet, sew, make jewellery, in fact anything that keeps my hands busy. I also enjoy reading.
