Weekend Crafting


I have spent some time this afternoon making cards and making a mess with lots of inks and favourite thing to do :)  Here are a few of the things that I came up with:

Here I inked a card panel with distress oxides and placed it behind a die cut aperture from X Cut.  It is such a simple way to create a card.  I shall link up at Inkspirational where the challenge is to make aperture cards.  

I also wanted to play along at CASology where the cue card is Butterfly.  I used a new stamp from Carabelle Studio:

I watercoloured the image with Aqua Markers and added a sentiment from Altenew.  The pastel colours and flurry of butterflies makes me think of spring!

And finally I made (another) valentines card:

I stamped a wavy background stamp from Hero Arts on to light blue card stock and added some colour variation with pencil.  The cardstock was die cut in to a heart shape and I added the beautiful layered whale which is also from Hero Arts.

I shall link this card up at Simon's Monday Challenge and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Love.  

I hope you like my cards :)
