Weekend Crafting

So glad to be back in my craft room today – I’ve been sick in bed for the past 4 days binge watching ‘Jane the Virgin’ on Netflix. So it’s nice to be upright and making something.

First up is a card for the current MUSE challenge where the lovely Anita provided some stenciling inspiration.

Here’s Anita’s card: MUSE281_logo I was inspired by the female stencil she used and the non-traditional colours of her hair.

I used a stencil I’ve had for over a year but not inked up yet by Scrap FX called ‘Vogue Girl’ which I sponged in Distress Inks in Black Soot, Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet. I then stamped a sentiment from the Ton called ‘Born Classy’ and my OLC was done!


Next up is a card fitting 3 challenges:

  • Just Add Ink #425 – photo inspiration
  • The Flower Challenge #24 – Anything Goes
  • Fusion – Daisies

I loved the layout of the Fusion challenge and the soft looking flowers and leaves of the Just Add Ink challenge so got inky with a stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs called ‘Best in You’ and used a variety of CPD inks and the sentiment s from PTI ‘ Stylish sentiments: Birthday’ and the DSP is from MFT 6×6 pad Black & White Stripes.


Lastly is my card for the challenges at AAA Cards & the Alphabet Challenge Blog.

I love the simplicity of the AAA Cards sketch and the Alphabet challenge is all about leaves for the letter ‘L’.

I used my alcohol inks in aqua and purple twilight on a panel behind my circle negative. I added a little bit of Nuvo silver gilding flakes and die cut a couple of leaves; added a sentiment from a discontinued Fresh Squeezed Stamps set called ‘Words to live by’ and popped my card panel onto a white card base.


Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Loving your interpretation of my card, and such an artsy feel to your creation too. Loving all the shades of purple on all your makes. I hope you’re on the mend now. Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x


  2. These are three fabulous designs! Love the artsy look of that stencil – so perfect for this week’s Muse and I also love the alcohol inks as they are one of my current obsessions 🙂

  3. I love how your CAS card references the colours and flowers of the inspiration picture Tristan. Linking your flowers and leaves into a wreath is really striking! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
