I hope you have been enjoying your weekend. It has been very cold and miserable here....perfect for lots of stamping time :)
I decided to play with my much neglected gelatos to make a boy card:
I blended a range of gelatos together in the background and inked through a dotty stencil in the corners in salty ocean, peeled paint and black soot distress inks. I sprayed through my HA numbers stencil over that with Studio Calico opaque white mist. Finally I stamped the headphones from Indigo Blu and the sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps. This is more grungy than my usual style but I really like how it turned out. I will play with gelatos more often :)
I will link up at Craft Stamper's Take It Make It Challenge
I also wanted to play along for the second consecutive week with Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge. The black and gold combo is so lovely:
This was my first time inking up the gorgeous Painted Butterflies set from Altenew and I just used the very simplest outline on this design to keep it CAS. I will link up for a second time at CASology's NBUS challenge.
That's another crafty weekend finished for me....
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
