I actually paper crafted!

I have been doing a weekly art journal page, and some knitting, since my last hospital trip but haven’t really had the energy for paper crafts. I miss it and know doing art is good for me – but the thought of packing and unpacking and just *doing* has been too much. Until today…

I only managed three cards, but that feels like quite an achievement. I used my Stampotique stamps on Stampin’ Up cardstock, and for one I used a Distress Oxide background. The hare was originally on a plain background but I stuck some text on, didn’t like it, removed the text and tore the card base. I was going to throw it out, then thought better of it and just kept going – I think it turned out ok. Are they fairly basic? Yes, but a good feeling all the same.

Stampotique Black & White challenge

I have started following Stampotique on Facebook as I have a couple of their stamps, and decided to join this week’s Black & White only challenge #251. My first attempt was going well, until I relaised I had coloured the bat using pinks and mauves! This card was my second attempt.

I used my Stampotique Pedro stamp, a StencilGirl stencil and Dylusions paint for the background, SimonSaysStamp black card and a Tim Holtz sentiment. Pedro’s eyes and boots are finished with Glossy Accents.
