Weekend Crafting Fun

It’s springtime here in Melbourne and the sun in shining; I love this time of year, the temperature is in the mid 20’s, the sun is out with a light breeze – perfect.

So why am I in my craft room? Well I needed a bit of quite time after Miss K’s netball games this morning in the sun and before I join my extended family for a BBQ.

I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch and MUSE Challenge card by the lovely Tracey McNealy.

I loved the main circle image on both layouts with some feature images on each; so die cut a gold metal piece into a circle rim. I ten stamped up the tress from the Clearly Besotted ‘Modern CHristmas’ set using Catherine Pooler Designs Lime Rickey ink and a sentiment from Ellen Hutson’s ‘Mondo Holly set’ in Momento Black ink.

My second card is for the challenges over at CASology and Little Red Wagon.

I’ve been having fun creating alcohol ink spot cards lately – I love how they can highlight the beauty of the inks. I chose to make another card in this style in blue and purple and added a sentiment from Power Poppy called ‘Big Scripts’.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
